This class was tough.
Jane is a phenomenal professor who cares about her students future, she teaches the class in a way where you know the skills that you acquiring will be useful toward your career. The class is exam/essay based and you will remember what you have learned because of this. I'm confident in my knowledge of pathophysiology because of this course. This class is also interesting because the professor ties real life events into the class from her expertise and experience in this field. It is important to have a good understanding of anatomy and physiology before taking this course.
I have gained an extensive knowledge of diseases and illnesses that occur in the human body. I have also learned how diseases spread and how they can originate. This course also made other major classes I'm currently taking to make more sense because the topics all fit together. The exams are all essay based which I would conclude as a highlight because it has allowed me to develop good writing skills as well as my understanding of pathophysiology.

Advice for students:
Making note cards of the diseases was a major key in my success to this course. Being as specific as possible, remembering what symptoms are to go with which diseases as well as how they are diagnosed. Paying attention to details is very important. A helpful tip to memorizing so much material would be to explain your notes to others out loud.
