    Basic sciences vs Clinical scieces at Windsor

    Advertisements



    I know it has been mentioned various times on this forum that Windsor does not have the best rotations out there. I just want to know what I can do as a student to enhance that experience and make the most of what we do get. What was the hardest thing you felt to translate from basic sciences to clinical sciences? How did the lack of proper preparation during basic sciences (patient interactions, dissections, etc) affect your experience during rotations? Any insight would greatly be appreciated

    You have a loaded question there. I can only touch the dissection part. There is no Dissection(atleast for us), and there is only so much you can learn from pictures. What helped me is Instant Anatomy. You can Google and sample the lectures. Explains Cranial nerves, Cavernous Sinus, Inguinal area very clearly.

    Thanks for the resource. I heard the Michigan site has a lot of good stuff too. But yeah, was just looking for some advice from those who have already done it all successfully

    The history & physical skills taught during basic sciences was terrible. I learned all of that on my own in clinicals as does everyone else.

    I meant what is the criteria used to see if you passed or failed? Also, Ive been reading about 'monthly meetings', is that related to rotations?

    Basic sciences wasn't terrible...could definitely have been better though of course. At least in basic sciences everything is laid out for you. The transition from med 5 to rotations is extremely confusing.
