Finalreflection on pathology class
Thepathology class gave us a lot of insight on fundamental pathologicalprocesses and various conditions in biology of diseases. Although theclass was interesting and I learned a lot, it also had its ups anddowns. Examples of class activities that I engaged ion includedcritical thinking exercises, workbook assignments, and small groupcases. This essay notes areas that I particularly struggled with butnow feel I have mastered.
Criticalthinking exercises in the pathology class were mainly aimed atenhancing our abilities to think and make accurate decisions based onavailable data. This was one of my favorite class exercises becausethere were multiple answers and points were given based on creativityand relevance. One, however, had to master basic pathology topicssuch as cell injury and death, healing and repair processes andinflammation among others.
Ialso enjoyed group work. Apart from its academic aspect, I was alsoable to improve my communication. Group work can help one learn howto work with others and make evidence-based arguments (West, 2012).Consequently, I enjoyed this exercise because it helped me improve myinterpersonal skills and relations with my peers,
Thehardest part of the pathology class involved workbook assignments.This area was difficult because it required in-depth reading andunderstanding of pathology concepts. I quickly managed to masterthese exercises because acknowledged my weakness and sought help frommy peers and teachers. I also set aside more time to work on workbookassignments.
Inconclusion, it is evident that the pathology class was very educativeand exciting. We were engaged in several exercises to develop ouracademic abilities and ensure that we had mastered the concept. Froman individual`s perspective, the pathology class also allowed me todevelop my communication and interpersonal skills.
