Question about first semester schedule

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

I am curious to know what a daily/weekly schedule is like during first semester in terms of hours in class per day, average number of exams per week, number of classes taken at a time, etc.

 

For example, do you have class from 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday? How long is lunch break? Do you ever get off early for extra study time? Do you have exams every week and if so how many?

 

Thanks so much!

Summer is the first semester. Your two hard classes will be anatomy and physiology. Expect to be in class M-F 8-5 with an hour for lunch 12-1. Some days we started later and some we got out earlier, but not too much. If I recall, we had an exam about once every week or two. It seems daunting at first, but once you get into fall you'll realize how easy you had it. Fall semester is definitely M-F 8-5. One week we had three exams and an OSCE, which is a role-playing exam. After that, one exam a week is easy. Expect at least one exam per week.
