The guys in anatomy lab during the testes and scrotum dissection

Beautiful, valiant, generous, and supremely unchaste.

My med school covers all of human anatomy in 9 weeks so it feels like my brain’s been plugged into the matrix. In the last 2.5 weeks I’ve learned all of the bones and their landmarks, all of the muscles and their insertions, the fascia and body compartments, all of the nerves, veins and arteries, along with how to do physical examinations on the upper and lower extremities (shoulders, knees, elbows, etc) and have practiced with standardized patients for hours (hooray for CAPE!). I’ve already spent over 28 hours dissecting my cadaver (omfg I got to hold a spinal cord) so getting squirted in the face is a daily thing for me. We’ve already taken 6 hours of ultrasound training classes because UC throws us into US as a diagnostic tool during week 1… and it lasts for 4 years :O which is something that very few med schools do! It was amazing, I performed an US on a pregnant woman, where I determined the fetal heart rate, age, and sex. Not to mention we’re starting our longitudinal 4 year radiology course tomorrow. Holy crap. We’re in lecture, lab, in the mock clinic, doing case studies with small groups, or doing some sort of imaging/doctoring longitudinal curriculum from 8am-5pm every day.

❝The theory of quantum electrodynamics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And it agrees fully with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as she is — absurd.❞
