The second most difficult subject is not really difficult but it’s time consuming. Gross Anatomy, the basis of medical studies, is quite dull with studying nothing but the nerves, arteries, veins, muscles, bones, muscle origins and insertion points, and organs. It’s not something that I put much interest into. However, whenever I understand what does what, it boosts my confidence as a medical student because then I understand what moves underneath my skin as I move.
Embryology is the most interesting subject in this semester. Studying embryology gives a more clear perception of what can happen or not during pregnancy. Perhaps now I can figure out what happened to my baby brother that who died during his fetal period. So far the subject is quite interesting and the discussions in class makes it more interesting.
The fourth and the least difficult subject is Medical Ethics. This class has the least number of credit hours because the class is not that hard. During class hardly anyone takes notes because it’s a class full of discussions based on common sense. The instructor would give us a scenario in treating patients, and then he would ask us what we would do based on our ethical foundation.
