Dr. Pastor started off the day with a second lecture on signal transduction, which was very well done. Talking with him after, we discussed how in our undergrad we learned much of his lecture over an entire semester, not just 2 hours. Although we did learn it in more detail, it is still difficult to pick up even the basic concepts in such a short time – one of the difficulties with starting medical school directly from high school. Afterwards we helped the students with some of the general concepts from their PBL, such as organ donor matching and blood transfusion. The students use many different textbooks, making it difficult to get the same information -- especially because some textbooks are much older than others -- which can lead to a bit of confusion.
At the end of the day we did a presentation on time management. Since we have gone through our undergrad, we had a few tips that we had picked up along the way. Overall we thought it went well, and many of the students downloaded the presentation on their USB.
