They are not really discrete classes for the most part. The curriculum goes by blocks, starting with foundations and then proceeding through each of the body systems. First year covers foundations and unit 1. During foundations, basic science topics are discussed as well as genetics, hematology, MSK, rheumatology, immunology and more. Unit 1 covers primarily cardiology, respirology, nephrology. Most things are covered through lecture and CBL. There are also the lab based parts of the curriculum like anatomy, histology, and radiology which tend to correspond to what’s being covere in lecture and CBL. Finally, there is physician skills development which focus on how to interview patients and how to do physical exams, which also tend to correspond to what’s being covered in lecture/CBL. Hope this clarifies things!

The real question is... will we ever see the Krebs cycle again?

This sounds so similar to Queen's year 1 curriculum, it's shocking. Plus Queen's and Ottawa being the two schools with mandatory community week at the end of first year through ROMP and ERMEP... I find it kind of funny, because I know Western's preclerkship curriculum is almost entirely different from Queen's.
