I received an email today with the official class of 2011 schedule for next fall. I already had an idea of what I would be taking, but it is nice for clarification. I apparently have to register for these courses on my own online, so I’ll get on that in the next few days.

Here is what I am looking at:

8:00 – 8:50 – Human Physiology I
9:00 – 9:50 – Microbiology
10:00 – 10:50 – Histology I
11:00 – 12:30 – Human Anatomy
1:30 – 4:30 – Human Anatomy

Comprehensive Care IA from 8 – 4:30pm with 50 minute lunch break

Identical to Monday

8:00 – 9:50 – Comprehensive Care IA
10:00 – 10:50 – Histology I
11:00 – 12:30 – Microbiology
1:30 – 4:30 – Comprehensive Care IA

Friday (my favorite day)
8:00 – 8:50 – Physiology I
9:00 – 9:50 – Microbiology
10:00 – 12:30 – Histology I

My only concerns are regarding those giant 2+ hour blocks of lecture-based classes (micro/histo). I really have trouble focusing while sitting on my butt for more than an hour, but I clearly don’t much choice now. I also wish I could find info on what exactly we will be doing in comp. care. I know it is going to introduce us to the pre-clinic and have us use those gnarly teeth I have been collecting, but I am still in the dark for the most part.

Oh well, was still exciting to get some more info. Classes run from 8/27-12/21 (including finals). My only problem with school is when I burn out..which almost always happens around finals. My solution has been to not refer to dental school as school; rather, it is JOB TRAINING – albeit extensive. This way I will trick my mind and hopefully work harder, but we will see.
