Reviews and tips for BIOM20002

The subject organisation was changed in 2016 and the topics are a lot better integrated. Instead of anatomy, physiology and pharmacology separately, the modules are now based on organ systems.

Not nearly as good as MCB I'm afraid, but it's certainly better than previous years. The lecturers are passionate and on the whole explain things fairly well. The anatomy content is really interesting and the pracs are fantastic. I found that the physiology parts of the course could at times be very basic, and having a background in biology and physiology from high school I wasn't pushed too hard. I can however understand the need to go at a slower pace for all those who haven't done it before. The pharmacology aspect of it was definitely intense and hard to grasp, if you've got friends doing the pharm selective get them to help you because it's very hard to know what to learn from these lectures and the content can be delivered in a confusing way

This subject was overall pretty interesting, but elements of it were poorly taught. HSF covers physiology, pharmacology and anatomy, but (unlike MCB) it fails to integrate these topics. The pharmacology and anatomy components were taught really well and were enjoyed by most members of the class. Unfortunately, however, the main physiology lecturer is not great, and he tends to emphasise one bit of content but assess you on others so watch out for that. Overall I enjoyed HSF, and came out with a solid understanding of the structure and gross functioning of the human body and some of the principles of pharmacology.

Subject was poorly co-ordinated in my year. However, as most of us were aspiring doctors we enjoyed learning the anatomy and physiology components of this subject. Most people survived physiology by watching charles lectures. Pharmacology can be very dry but I enjoyed learning it so it wasnt too tough for me.
