    Neuroscience at my school. Endless minutiae with little or no clinical relevance.

    Yeah, neuro sucks. Endless minutiae. although biochem at my school is extremely painful and ranks at the bottom in true clinical relevance (although it should be more clinically relevant and probably is at other places).

    Used to be the same at my school, but beginning with our class, they moved Neuro to 2nd year and combined it with Neuropath. Hopefully that will make it a little less painful and a lot more clinically relevant.

    Biochemistry is the hardest class in my school. They expect us to memorize the most minute details, most of which we will never use in practice. Neuro was actually easy and fun at our school. At my sisters school, Anatomy was the killer class.

    Ditto to biochem. It's hell here. Long (almost all year), and rediculously in depth.

    We have a great neuro course dirctor, so that class was amazing both 1st and 2nd years. Actually it has been my favorite course both years.

    If you are saying what class sucks most...how about saying where you go to school as well...that would be MUCH MUCH more informative.....

    I hated biochem at BUSM, which is odd because I was a chemistry major in college. I guess the difference was that in med school, I had no time to think about the interesting stuff and had to focus on the memorization.

  14. Biochem was not bad at Tufts. Anatomy is a killer this semester; I actually like the course and feel like I'm learning something important (unlike most of Biochem)but am not doing too well. Hopefully now that I know more about how to study for it I'll do better on the next exam (still don't know what I got on the first one, but I think it was not great and most people didn't have a good feeling about how they did either.)

    I'm enjoying neuro so far <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> . It's so much more interesting than anatomy.

    I hated anatomy at my school. There were only four main professors for anatomy, one of whom took on nearly two thirds of all lectures. Demonstrations for CTs and cross sections were really poorly organized. It just wasn't really a subject that I enjoyed.
