I am an incoming MS1 and have always been fascinated in ophthalmology after doing visual neuroscience research. I have no idea if I will like the clinical side of it, but I am definitely looking forward to studying it. As I looked through the organ system class descriptions, however, I was not totally sure what systems these would fall under? Are they usually combined with the neuroscience section, or would this fall more under the MSK section?

It would fall under sensory I guess, but the way my school covered it was a head and neck unit.

Ophtho is usually part of neuro. Med schools don't teach much ENT at all. I learned some in neuro, some in first year anatomy, and honestly most on my peds clerkship.

We had 2 lectures of optho in neuro. But we literally had a 4 week block for ENT. It was a lot of memorization with all the anatomy, but board ENT questions are easy now
