but no, seriously, /sci/ is mostly a haven for the people who enjoy solving problems using quantitative hard sciences like chem, physics, and math. biology and medicine is just horrifyingly brute memorization.
I make this generalization about premeds, and you, because its something like 85-90% are biology and psych majors, the rest are biochem and chemistry. anything else is pretty much negligible. If you are already in a hard science with plans to enter med school, you are setting yourself up for a degree in memorizing concepts. i personally could not imagine the transition from actual problem solving, to memorization memorization memorization. its just not nearly as interesting or fun.
>start uni recently, obviously majoring in math+cs >see old high school friends over the weekend >some /premed/ is taking classes that teach you how to use microsoft excel for "easy marks" I thought this was simply a meme but these people should never be doctors
>>7587342 >medicine is just horrifyingly brute memorization I wold never go to a doctor in your contry with such a focus.
Medicine is a profession where you apply the knowledge, make observations, formulate a hypothesis etc. Then and only when you have a good working theory do you progress to treatment. Otherwise you end up giving painkillers to everything including broken bones.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle studied medicine and one of his professors was the model for Sherlock Holmes.
I have seen this done IRL by a very experienced GP. It was impressive.
While I cannot speak for even third year courses in the pre med program, this is my first impression regarding the beginning of the curriculum. Our med terminology class was literally 100% this. Bored me to tears, ended up transferring.
