First year blocks are divided by organ systems. The focus is on physiology (the normal working of the human body) and avoids pathologies (diseases) and especially avoids treatments. Second Year focuses on pathologies and their treatments.
New students should also organize their own batch. Creating a Facebook group and using DropBox is highly recommended.
Materials recommended for the first year include: folio-sized paper, black pens, pencils, stapler, pencil crayons (color pencils), and highlighters.
