i thought that organic chemistry was bad... noo pharmacology is worse... its not harder, its just tedious.... i dont care about the 20 different antipsychotic meds. which med.s cross the blood brain barrier....etc... im not even allowed to prescribe medication when i graduate !!! im studying from the same book as nursing students and im in the dental field. i know that medication is relevant in dental hygiene but they teach the subject to us like we are pharmacists!
my props to all the doctors and pharmacists out there.... i would hate to study that.....drives me bonkers

That's the tuff thing with any area of medical education. You get a lot of crossover in education and material. Some useful, most not. All depending on your area of expertise and your intended major.~ Nothing can kill the Grimace!!

Actually I thought organic was kind of fun. I'm a visual learner by nature and drawing all the structures over and over was actually kind of easy for me. The lab stuff gets kind of boring.... but I had a horrible lab prof.
r6 how can you be a 2nd year undergrad pharm student. I was under the impression a major was involved before you where accepted into pharm school,unless theres an early entrance program that I don't know about.

Most universites go by a 2-4 program which is 2 years pre-pharmacy and then you have to test and be accepted into the 4 year professional phase. The university I attend has a 0-6 year program that in essence: Once you're in, you're in. In other words, I was accepted into the program and they only accepted 222 in my year and all I have to do is maintain a 2.5GPA and atleast a C avg in each class all 6 years and I graduate with a PharmD (God willing). Make sense?

well, i take it back... I truly never studied and got a "B". the thing is, even though I got a "B", i truly did not know what the heck i was doing. my b was technically a "D" but with the curve it was a B bc most of the people in organic chem are failing to some degree...

Thanks, buuuuuuuut I don't intend on "Failing" out of any of my classes and that wouldn't be so hot on GPA that I need to stay in or maintain my scholarship (which is very little, still helps). So whenever I discuss this topic it's always a God willing because if He brings you to it He'll bring you through it kind of deal. Seems I hit it right, but we'll see.
