Semester Two

The vacation is over and it's time to get back to work. Our semester looks to be packed with all sorts of fun.

New Year

With the new year, of course I would like to say that my resolution to study late into the night every night and stay on top of things is fitting. I know myself better than that. Although I intend to be diligent, the faculty at Touro University have also scheduled quite the load this time around.

We will finish our anatomy studies which will be replaced with neuroscience. From the second year students we hear great things about this course's difficulty. I'm sure it will show up here in some form of stress relief. Histology, physiology, OMM and physical diagnosis will continue to be a part of the curriculum throughout the remainder of our first year experience. To top things off they have included a medical jurisprudence course. Don't ask me how, but apparently this semester has less credit hours than the previous.

Being ill for the greater part of the holidays may have put a damper on things, but my recreational side could not be deprived. After all, I live in Fabulous Las Vegas and had to take advantage of the time away from school. Had I purchased all the needed books and equipment at the begining of the year, there is a good chance I wouldn't have even thought of school over break. In the meantime I am enjoying the remaining hours of my vacation. I hope you have a great and happy new year.

  1. I remember the pre clinical years with horror - it just got harder and harder!

    I think that the good news is that the clinical years make much more sense and things seem to stop being so hard. There is still loads to learn, but not the endless and humorless facts you need to have to learn in pre clin.
    Happy New Year
