Medical school is a difficult and rigorous endeavor, but what exactly makes it so tough? Each course and rotation presents its own unique challenges, but some are notoriously more difficult.
The first two years of med school are almost like a continuation of college. You go to class, study, and sit for exams. At American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine, students take classes in a number of specialties, including:
- Medical Cell Biology
- Foundation of Medicine
- Human Structure & Function
- Biochemistry & Genetics
- Behavioral Sciences & Medicine
- Introduction to Clinical Medicine
These courses are part of the U.S. medical school curriculum and provide students with the knowledge they will need for their rotations.
