TTUHSC ESP Block 2: Orientation Week Workshops
This page is designed to give TTUHSC SOM students advance access to the materials
covered during orientation activities prior to the start of classes. Time and place
to be announced by email. Other students are also welcome here, but these activities
may not occur at your school, or they may be managed differently (see the non-TTUHSC
ESP Orientation - Lecture
This one hour lecture session will review the main concepts covered to this point
in the program followed by an overview of the remaining steps needed to complete it.
This will be an opportunity to ask questions and address uncertainties.
This workshop will last for 2 hours. We will use the "Anatomy Terminology" document
from the SuccessTypes unit in the Self-Study Block as the source material. This material
is essential learning in anatomy so the workshop is "study time." The exercises are
designed to comfortably simulate recommended activities every evening.
This workshop will last for 60 minutes. We will use the text, Clinically Oriented
Anatomy by Moore, et al., 6th Ed., although earlier editions will still also work.
Unlike the concept mapping exercises that should be done at the end of every day of
class, the question analysis system should be implemented once or twice a week allowing
time for adequate familiarization with the topics to be discussed. This method will
comprise the core method for Block 3 ESP Step 1 Prep.
Skills acquired in the Block 2 workshops are developed in the Block 3 ESP Step 1 Prep.
- These sessions are extracurricular, but highly relevant since they will always be
correlated with current course content.
- Details of the program will be presented during the ESP Orientation.
Best wishes for a strong start at Texas Tech and for your healthy growth physically,
mentally, and spiritually, as a new physician.
