Hey all!

Dr. Vivian Moynihan wanted to share with our class an ophthalmology blog run by Dr. Rosenthal, an ophthalmologist associated with UTMC! Please check it out:



Goodbye- Eric L.

I made a Google Presentation quiz on the nerves, arteries and veins of the head and neck. Note: you can download the presentations and store them on your computer, but if you go to the link each time, you will get the most recent version.

Hey everyone! Here is the link to UTCOM AMSA & Friends Relay for Life team for Friday, December 3rd. It's only $10 to join the team and it's for a great cause! It starts at 6PM that day but you are welcome to show up whenever you can! http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?pg=team&fr_id=32696&team_id=796488

The AMSA Instrument Sale is on October 22 during lunch. This is the best time to try out different pieces of equipment. Last year 166 students from the first year class bought their stethoscope at the AMSA Instrument Sale. There will be sales representatives from a couple of different companies showcasing their wares. Also on October 6, 7, and 8 AMSA will be collecting all first year white coats for embroidery. While not required, an embroidered name adds to the professionalism of the medical student (most schools require this, not UT). We have a group package on the seamstress so all embroidered coats are free for AMSA members and $10 for non-AMSA members. (there is still time to sign up for AMSA and get your free Anatomy atlas and discounted medicine ball tickets at http://www.amsa.org/AMSA/Homepage/JoinAMSA.aspx).

This is already posted under the "Block 1" tab, but it's pretty awesome...
Everyone be sure to join the Quizlet group. It's a fantastic way to use each other's flashcards for cramming (err... studying.) A couple of people have begun to add some really useful things here, so be sure to post some of your own cards. Someone who's real savvy could probably find a way to steal some of the upper class's cards to put them in our group once they become relevant to us.

Note for Smartphone Users: There are some pretty spiffy apps out there that allow you to download and use the Quizlet flashcards from your phone. I'm using Kaka Flashcards on Android and it's been working pretty well!

Unfortunately, not a lot of love-making going on in our class. Lots of tired, soon-to-be-drunks, though
View the complete survey results here
Good luck this afternoon, everyone.

Take the poll... The results will be posted sometime before the exam...

I know that we all go to Univ. of Toledo now, but I think we can all recognize the importance of tonight, 9/2/2010, in Ohio State's return to NCAAF dominance.

Welcome Class of 2014 to your new Wikispace!

Lots will be shared here so you better be amped for a good time!

Hey guys- I'll be helping manage the site so if you have any ideas for organization/content, email me at Eric.Levin@rockets.utoledo.edu I'm gonna start off with a page for mneumonics for exam 1. If you find any relevant good ones or think of one yourself you can add it. I'll start it off with one I thought of for TCA cycle. Good luck!!
