Adrian Rubin’s Time in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine

Freshman year at the UNC, one of the top-ranked medical schools in the United States, consisted of classes on cellular and molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, anatomy, and embryology. Every week, medical students at the UNC meet in small groups to discuss clinical medicine and learn how to do basic physical exams. They also followed and observed physicians all over North Carolina during their “Community Weeks” which lasted fourteen days. Many students also did their own clinical or medical science research either at their university or other school, while some even conduct their research in clinics all over the world, like Asia, South America and Africa.

The second year was devoted to students familiarizing themselves with the various technology and equipment used to make diagnosis like x-ray, MRI, mammogram, and CT scanner. Students learned various organ systems regarding their makeup, what kinds of diseases that could disrupt each system, how to make diagnosis and treat specific ailments. Adrian Rubin also took a seminar class on Humanities and Social Science for six months and continued his attendance of group work in clinical medicine as well the “Community Weeks” to absorb even more knowledge and experience from licensed physicians.
