BETTER THAN SLEEPING ON THE JOB


A study of the skeleton by Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564)

I’ve been doing the graveyard shift these past three weeks and in between downtime, I’ve had the greatest pleasure of reviewing my anatomy. Yep, you read that right - my human anatomy. Thanks to the website of the University of Minnesota, I’ve been able to refresh my already shrinking memory of my medical school days, most especially that of my knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology.

Funny enough, for the very first time, I was able to appreciate the physiology behind the renin-angiotensin system (I hated Nephrology back then because it was too darn confusing). Thanks to the site, it doesn’t spoon-feed the student but rather, it helps you analyze how things work inside the nephrons. I wish my professor did just that – simplify, simplify. He should have read Thoreau in his free time.

If you are into medical stuff and you miss it so, you can review your anatomy
here. I can’t wait to review Histology and Neurology next as I was really bad in these subjects. My favorite basic medical subject was, hmm, Biochemistry. I think.

Hehe! I'm not into medical stool but we did study some anatomy in college, mainly on the surface, muscle and skeletal structure for our figure drawing class in college. It's really nice to keep on learning :D

do i detect a sexual undertone in this entry? for me it is heavy in subtext that you have been exploring your body often but you need to explore more...play with it more. (rolls in laughter)
