We had a Med Biochem quiz today on Vitamins and related diseases. Already.
I mean classes just started on the 13th, and we were already given a quiz on the 16th? lol
Our Med Biochem professor is so spontaneous--though I do like him. He quizzes us in a different format, but picking our names out of a list and asking us in front of the class a medical question related to the course--either it be clinical features of riboflavinosis, angular stomatitis, glositis, etc, or particular recommended doses for adult male/female for pediatrics or for geriatrics.
Today I was called on to give the clinical features of diseases related to deficiency in Folic Acid. Ning ask siya nako 'some diseases and their presentation' so I gave him a list--particular megaloblastemia, microcystic anemia, sprues, neural tube defects--as well as the specifics of said clinical presentation. I even explained to him the pathways of neural tube defects--and the necessity in the mother's intake of F.A only in the 1st trimester and not in the 2nd or 3rd.
He nodded to my answer and said bluntly, "Good good Lorenzo, just don't lecture when I ask a question. " My reaction nako was a smile--and of course a pink and deep red face. LOL. I was so embarassed.
But after the quiz, he came up to me and nonchalantly said, "Lorenzo, you did well, I just wanted to play with you."
Ako, as usual, played as if it didn't affect me. And parted ways for the weekend.
Dr. Cooper, our professor for the course, is so cynical and yet so spontaneous--and thats one of the reasons why I really like how he teaches. He invigorates me and most of my batchmates. He makes us think--gets us nervous--and plants the seeds of doubt in our assured minds. I like that.
I think I will like this class very much. He reminds me of my Molecular Biology professor back in undergraduate years. LOL!Linkback: https://tubagbohol.mikeligalig.com/index.php?topic=11833.0
