Part I Anatomy & Biochemistry
Anatomy • Anatomy, clinicals, radiographic lectures… • Classes with Dr. Jurjus: don’t take notes, just watch and learn…it’s all in the book • Clinicals: don’t take notes, watch and learn…its all in the book • Radiographic lectures: don’t take notes…watch and learn…practice on computer! • Movies: don’t take notes…just watch!
Anatomy How to study? • Atlas and/or board (every word) • DON’T buy the clinically oriented • See the board questions • See the previouses • Iphone app
Anatomy lab • PREPARE from dissector for every lab…at least read it! • Watch Dr. Jurjus…climb on chairs! • BE ACTIVE and try to grasp as much as possible for the practical exam • They will open the lab for a day before the exam…plus go to websites which show pictures
Embryology • Slides and classroom notes • Book is a good reference • See previouses • Concentrate! Its difficult at first!
Biochemistry • 6 credit course, NO BOOK NEEDED • Material • Genetics: Dr. George Nemer or Dr. Nadine Darwich • Separate exam, not in final • Dr. JulnarUsta • Bulk of the course • Handouts • SPEED • Taking notes • Office visits • Attendance / Attention • Daily Basis Studying • Exams (student questions, previouses, subjectives, surprise) • Drs. Aida Habib/Ayad Jaffa • Endocrinology : Dr Ibrahim Salti • Case Discussions(Exams, Interesting)
Part II Histology & Biophysics
HISTOLOGY – Format MANY LECTURERS!!! Part 1 Cell & Tissue Types • Sabban, Jurjus, Saadeh, and others… Part 2 Organs & Systems • Given along with physiology courses
HISTOLOGY – Lab • Pay attention in labs • No need to take excessive notes/details…etc • Practical Exams
BIOPHYSICS – Format Helpful Tip: Attend computer lab sessions and benefit as much as possible from the video simulations • Dr. Anwar Bikhazi • Dr. AssaadEid • Dr. Marwan El Sabban • Dr. SuhaylJabbur Course Coordinator • Dr. NayefSaadé • Dr. Sami Sanjad • Dr. AsadZeidan • Dr. FuadZiyadeh

BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM Don’t study for grades… DIDI… Let me give you some advice… Manage your time… Don’t listen to anyone…Everyone has his own way of studying…
Last 2 months… The fun starts!
Part IV Cardiovascular system, Homeostasis, Metabolism, Histology II, SPM II
Cardiovascular system • Vascular system • Dr. adelberberi • Cardiology • Dr. AbdallahRbeiz (Excellent explanation) • Dr. Samir Alam (2 lectures with hard concepts)
No books needed • Only handouts and powerpoints • Exam is very clinically based • Some histology questions
Homeostasis • Renal • Repetitive topics • Handouts & powerpoints • Dr. FouadZiyadeh • Pulmonary • Short course (Few lectures) • Calculations • Exam is direct • (Memory, calculations, histology part included)
Metabolism I • Reproductive • Intensive, very detailed powerpoints • Memory based questions • Dr. Johnny Awwad • Digestive • Powerpoints, handouts • Histology part is 5 lectures long • Physiology
Metabolism II • Endocrinology • Dr. Ibrahim Salti • Few lectures • Powerpoints are enough • Exam is pure memory
Biostatistics • Easy • Stat 210 + 4 other new topics • 2 or 3 group assignments • Midterm and a final
SPM II • Last course in Med I • 2 weeks project • Presentation & Research paper
