What to expect in these 3 Week classes. Three weeks is intense but it is doable for these Anatomy and Physiology courses. For the first two days most students feel a bit overwhelmed and are concerned that they took on too much. But it gets better, not because it gets easier, but because students get used to it. They tend to create study groups and they go through the experience together. The biggest thing to remember is that Dr. Luke has taught this 3 week format for many years and many students have taken these courses and have succeeded. Many students are motivated to take these 3 week Anatomy & Physiology courses at TWU in May and June so they can apply to other programs for the fall at other universities & colleges.
