it’s been quite a long time since my last post. Actually, I had written this post about 3 weeks ago, but then I had no time to post it. Here it is.
P.S. The title is quite eye-catching, but the content is quite the same. Eye-catching title is a must!
Let’s get started!
Welcome to the Fundamental of Medical Science 3 or so called FMS 3. The main theme in this block is physiological aspect of the human body, to simplify this thing, I’ll refer this as faal or fisiologi in Bahasa. You’ll learn how does the body responds to the changing environments,e.g. temperature, chemicals,and so on. You need to learn carefully in this block. As every doctor always say, if you can understand the physiological aspect behind every disease, then you are sure to becoming a good doctor.
This block lasts for 5 weeks. Each week you are given different subject. In the end you’ll have MCQ and OSPE. In this block you are introduced to Medical Physiology of Adults and Infants, Clinical Pathology (Patologi Klinik or we always call it PK), Anatomical Pathology (Patologi Anatomi or we always call it PA; don’t be confused with the term PA as Pembimbing Akademik), Anatomy, Histology, and Pharmacology. My favorite week in FMS 3 is week 5. The topic in week 5 is Inflammation. Inflammation in my opinion is easy to understand, quite difficult to identify the microscopic slides (but you are given a case which will help you a lot).
