University of the Incarnate Word
Idaho State has a modified block system - what they call modules - for the P2 and P3 years. I'm not sure if this is the same as the block system that USN uses, though. Here's a quote from an e-mail from my sister's ex-boyfriend, who's a P3 there (the e-mail was written in February):
"The school prides itself with its "Module" program. P2 & P3 years have successive 6 wk modules that discuss set disease states. Currently, I am in the Mental Health Module. The really cool thing is that the faculty is constantly changing. In one day (3 hours of lecture), we may have 3 diffent professors. The last exam was worth 140 pts and covered a cumulative of new material and material from the last two exam - roughly 10 different professor's questions - a section for each. The modules cover everything about the disease state. For example, for any given subject, we have a scientist telling us what currently is the theory behind the disease state, a clinical practitioner discussing diagnosis, a medicinal chemist discussing drug structure and function and also still another professor discussing the which, how and why of drugs used in said disease state. We are learning a great deal of information. I really can't wait until May - the end of didactics and classroom work - the beginning of a year of 6 wk rotations in profession settings."
Although it isn't as well known, ISU actually is a pretty decent school if you want a clinical education. I'm glad that I decided to go there!
