The second year begins August 27 and includes two vacations. The figure listed beside each course title indicates the total number of hours assigned to that course.
The second year curriculum is undertaken by students and faculty as a transition year of synthesizing the course content into the necessary fund of knowledge to be used with history taking and physical diagnosis. This fund of knowledge and new skills will be enhanced by clinical experiences in the Major Clinical Year. This educational exercise includes lectures, seminars, patient interviews, and Physical Diagnosis sessions. This process is best served by all students partaking in all parts of the curriculum.
