Bone, Joint, and Muscle Pathology Lecture Summary

Here’s a high-yield summary of the Bone, Joint, and Muscle Pathology lectures from last week. It is not exhaustive – but it covers the most important features of the most important disorders.

Exam questions will come directly from the information in this summary – so this should help you structure your studying for the exam. I would strongly urge you to cover the rest of the disorders in these lectures on your own, though, because even though they are not quite as high-yield, they’re still important!

Let me know if you have questions.

Summary videos on pituitary and thyroid pathology

I got an email asking about whether I had any summary videos for our pituitary and thyroid lectures – since we had to move classrooms on November 18, there’s no Mediasite recording for those two lectures.

I haven’t gotten around to making any summary videos on those lectures for our website yet – but I did dig up some short(ish) youtube videos I made for the med students a couple years ago:

Pituitary pathology summary video
Thyroid pathology summary video

Please note that although the content is pretty similar, it’s not exactly the same (in the med school, pathology gets about 3x the hours that we have in the dental school). So if you do end up watching these videos, I’d recommend having our lecture ppts open at the same time so you don’t end up trying to memorize details we didn’t cover.

Quiz 3 is available

Here is quiz 3! You can take it any time it is convenient for you. Feel free to use your notes and/or talk about the questions together. I’ll leave it up until Tuesday (December 3) in case you don’t want to do it over Thanksgiving.

Let me know if you run into any problems.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, or Friendsgiving, or stay-home-and-watch-Netflix-giving. I am so very grateful for all of you!  


Exam 2 scores are up!

Exam 2 scores are back and are posted on Canvas.

You did extremely well…here are the numbers:

Total points: 34
Mean: 32.41 (seriously.)
High: 34
Low: 21

There were 3 extra credit points – those are included in Canvas in a separate row, just to keep them out of the total # of points for the course.

I’ve entered your scores for quiz 2 – but I haven’t entered quiz 1 yet. Also – we’re still working through your answers to the SUD questions – everyone completed them, but some of you asked some questions for Dustin Chapman – so I’ll forward you those when he’s completed them, and post your scores at that time 🙂

Exam 2 breakdown and a couple new Kahoots
