Medical School Courses
Most medical school courses are normally taken during the 1st and 2nd years that a student attends medical school. In this article we will be taking a closer look at just what courses a student can expect to take whilst attending medical school during their first 2 years even though the actual time they spend at medical is 4 years in total.
During the first year that a student attends medical school they will be taking courses that relate to the human body including how it develops and the way in which the body functions. As part of their education they will be taking more in depth courses relating to the following subjects.
1. Anatomy - looks at how the human body works.
2. Physiology - looks at the mechanical as well as physical and biochemical functions of living organisms found in the human body.
3. Histology - this part of the course looks closely at human tissue.
4. Bio-chemistry - this part of the course will look at the chemical processes and transformations which take place in living organisms such as those in the human body.
5. Embryology - during this part of the course the student will be looking more closely at how embryos develop.
6. Neuroanatomy - during this section of their training a medical student will learn about the body's nervous system and now it works.
Then during the second year of their training a medical student will start doing courses which relates to various diseases and how they can be treated. The main sections of this part of their training revolves around the following subjects.
1. Pathology - it is here the student will learn about how to diagnose a disease through examining organs, tissue, cells as well as bodily fluids.
2. Pharmacology - the student will look at how substances interact with living organisms and what changes this will make in the way that they function.
3. Microbiology - the students will be studying more closely how micro-organisms work in relation to the human body.
4. Immunology - during this final part of their 2nd year training a student will be looking at all areas of the immune system including in relation to it functioning correctly and incorrectly.
As well as carrying out all this course work during the first 2 years that they attend medical school each student will be taught how to interact with patients. They will be provided with medical school courses relating to taking a person's medical history down as well as carrying out a physical examination of that person and these occur during their second year at school.
You may well discover that the classroom and teaching methods that schools use will vary greatly from one to the next. Where you may find that some medical school courses are taught emphasizing on one subject each time and will have much smaller classrooms and will then discuss various case studies during the lectures that they have whilst others will not.
