At my school they don't teach histology....at least not the traditional bolus of histology most students get at the beginning of MS-I. Some of our power points include histology images and the lecturers point out aspects to us, but we never get tested on identifying images. There's definitely no looking at slides under a microscope. I think the school doesn't emphasizes it because pathology is the only specialty in which you need to be proficient at identifying histo samples, so it's better to focus on the physiology and pharmacology most physicians need to know. However, I've noticed that there are a fair number of histo questions on some of the NBME practice exams we take. Is histology a significant portion of the boards? Should I spend this part of this summer curled up with BRS histo?
