okay, i am totally blown away at how bad the basic science teaching is at my "top 20" med school. anatomy was absolutely amazing, but biochem is abhorent. the syllabuses are full of errors, incomplete, and outdated. no pictures either; the profs are too freaking lazy to draw anything themselves in the syllabuses and they are too cheap/chicken to distribute any copyrighted material. also the teachers make ben stein look exciting. forget powerpoint, they use the same transparencies and slides that they made 20 years ago. i really can't say enough bad things about the basic science teachers. if it weren't for the amazing quality of students we have helping each other try to make sense of what our teachers were unsuccesfully trying to explain, i'd be filling out transfer applications. i know that everything changes dramatically for the better after 1st year, but i was wondering, is anyone else having similar experiences?
