    How are the labs?

    Advertisements



    Hi all, I was just wondering how the labs are in medical school. Are they tested on later, or do you need to make lab reports, or both? What percentage of total study time do they take up?

    Just wondering!

    For anatomy lab you will have 1 practical for every written. so you'll be tested continuously, but no lab write ups. For anatomy, lab will take up a lot of time or not, it's all up to you.

    Micro lab meets just once a week, given a quiz every other week and a lab final. There are lab write ups.

    Not many labs...SOE's covered most of them. Apparently, Histo lab doesn't exist anymore. As far as I know, it's just anatomy & micro that have labs.

    Aloha,

    Aloha,
    Dont forget Med Psych... what a joke. We sit there, watch movies and "practice interview" eachother. Then have to write it up.

    Such a pain in the butt for that class.

    Oh...I forgot med psych. Don't knock it. It may seem inconsequential now, but for those with no medical experience, it may be the first time they can use interview skills, a skill that you'll only need more and more when it comes to H&P in 5th as well as in your clinicals when interating with real patients. As for the videos, some of them are pretty classic and funny when you see them, but when you do your psych rotation and see that there are people who are worse off than the individuals in the videos, you begin to realize that the videos are pretty "right on" in capturing the essence of these disorders. Plus, you may as well get used to "dressing up".

    Aloha,

    unless you are planning on mastering your fine motor skills like SOE, then you might have to put in extra time
