  • Falciform ligament is a remnant of the umbilical vein.
  • Apoptosis is programmed cell death that kills cells that are no longer needed or are injured. Increased apoptosis can cause neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Huntington's, and Parkinson's diseases.
  • Carbon is the most common exogenous pigment that accumulates in alveolar macrophages. Also, when you get a tattoo, the dermal macrophages take up that pigment giving you the tattoo you want. How cool it that?

Three for Tuesday (6.21.2016)

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Hello friends! I’ve been thinking about doing a new type of post for a while now and I’m finally getting around to it. I have always enjoyed reading the weekly/weekend update posts by different bloggers where they share a number of things every week on different topics. So expect a post at least on Tuesdays of every week from here on out (unless PA school gets way too crazy). I’m linking with Franish since her top three posts are how I begin my Sunday mornings (along with a hot cup of coffee) and also because she’s one of the bloggers who inspired me to start these posts!

PA School Week 2

                 (How we entertain ourselves while studying: muscular model handshake)

Hello friends! Hope all of you are doing well. I'm happy (and so relieved) to let you know that I survived my first week of assessments! We had a quiz Monday - Thursday in Medical Ethics, Applied Anatomy, Medical Physiology and Pathophysiology I (MPP I), and Research Methods and Designs. Needless to say, by Thursday we were running on fumes, so to speak. It was a very challenging week mainly because of the enormous amount of material we covered in a short few days ,and then got quizzed in 4/5 of our classes in the same week. The first round of quizzes went very well and I hope and pray that the rest of them will go as smoothly for all of us. Here's a recap of some of my classes from this week:

And So It Begins
