    Curriculum at Ross

    Advertisements



    i was looking over the ross website and i noticed the curriculum for the clinical portion at ross is 90 weeks. SGU has 80 weeks, saba has 72 weeks. does this mean that ross students have to wait much much longer for a MD degree compared to SGU and saba?

    Re: Curriculum at Ross

    Just do the math. If SGU is 80 weeks and Ross is 90 weeks, then that mustmean that Ross is a 10 week longer curriculum, etc, etc. :P

    But to answer your question, if you were to go all the way through w/o any big breaks in between, you could finish Ross in a little over 3 years and start residency, depending on what semester you started.

    speaking of curriculum....

    The current Chairman of the anatomy dep't said during PBL that he had petitioned the Dean to split anatomy and biochemistry into two-semester courses, with the first halves taken in first semester, and to ditch DPS. He said we just were not getting out of it what we needed to get out of it in four months with full loads in physiology and neuro.

    except neuro isn't really a full load. it's more half-a**ed.

    and with the way Ross admissions is designed, making anatomy 2 semesters long will result in overlap between fall/spring, or spring/summer classes, etc. They'd have to build another anatomy lab....which is possible in the future if they plan to expand.

    I have to admit, learning and remembering anatomy is a bi***. Not a very good information/studytime ratio.

    Re:

    He said he was hoping to have the change implemented for the incoming May class. How that would work I have no clue...for instance, what would the current first semesters do with anatomy next semester, and repeaters from current 2nd for that matter (of whom I pray I am not one).

    But yeah, time is a real bi*ch this term. One thing I haven't figured out is how we have 9 hours of physio lectures each week, yet the course is only 6 credit hours.
