                       Third year medical school course.


A more intricate overview of the subjects previously studied, the third year of medical school is designed to conclude the basic medical education of a medical student. Whilst it is known the initial years of med school is to educate students on the theory of medicine, we must remember that it is also the foundation for clinical practice.


The subjects focused on in the third year include pathology, pharmacology, pathophysiology, radiology, lab and physical diagnosis. During this period students learn the causes and behavior of disease in pathology, how this effects live specimens in pathophysiology lab time and learn about pathogenic diseases in parasitology.


The first and second year serves as a foundation in many ways; one of the key aspects is the role it plays leading up to the subject pharmacology, which is the study of drug action. It incorporates knowledge on chemical properties and biological effects. Lab and physical diagnosis focuses on diagnostic techniques and provides greater understanding in the world of diagnosis.


 The third year is easily considered as a bridge between medical knowledge a clinical practice as it provides the final stages of basic theory and serves as a basis and gateway to clinical practice. It requires a focused mind and takes dedication in grasping concepts.
