    I want to know how long osteopathic medical students spend, on average, in class each day. I am hoping to get an idea of the average, then you can see where your school stands against the averages. All D.O. MS-I and MS-II students please post. Thanks for your cooperation.

    KCOM has anywhere from 25-29 contact hours per week. Some days, we are in lab until 5 (classes start at 8) and some days, we are out as early as noon. It all depends on the schedule.

    When I had my interview at NYCOM, the students told us that the first years are in class from 9-3, but the second years are in class from 9-5.

    To give everyone a heads up who hasn't voted, and are unable to see the results, etc....here is the breakdown so far...after 37 votes....

    40% - 6 Hours
    29% - 8 Hours
    20% - 7 Hours
    11% - 5 Hours

    very interesting...the allopathic survey has 5 Hours as the majority, followed by 4 and 6.....seems there are less hours for allopathic students...maybe its the OMM being taught in DO schools...who knows?.....

    It might be just the school I attend, or just my personal preferece because I prefer to learn stuff on my own....but I feel I am in class too long....I feel I could be more productive at home, library, etc....

    This is why I posted this....thanks everyone for participating and keep voting!... <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    and congrats everyone for finishing your first or second year of medical school, wherever you might be...
