I know this is true for subjects like anatomy. But i;m

wondering if in med school, for memorization-heavy

subject such as anatomy, students only have to try brute-

force memorization of 1 of body system (say digestive) at

a time, then do a memory dump on 1 test and then can

afford to forget about it (the digestive system) and move

on to the next system (say immune) and do a another

memory dump and then forget about it ... ...

There is a lot of memorization, but of course if you learn stuff like you should, so that you actually understand why things are they way they are, memorization is much easier. You also learn by constant repetition; anatomy is an intro basically, then you'll review it again when you get to a specific system, then you'll see it again in surgery, on GI service, etc etc. Its a bunch of memorization, but I don't think its any worse than law or any other professions.
