Smile Do I Study Pharmacology or Pathology First?

Hey guys

I am going to soon begin my 3rd year (out of 6) of medschool and two of the major subjects I'll be studying will be Pathology and Pharmacology.
Since I'm in my summer break I figured I'd try to cover those two before I start my school year.

Now the real question is - what do I cover first? I'm planning on using both Kaplan Pharma (+ a few videos from good ol' Dr Najeeb) and Pathoma as my sources but I'm just not entirely sure what I should start with.. Surely there's some benefit to starting with one of them over the other?

Thanks to any helpers!

Default Path

In my opinion, its important to understand a disease first before you can treat it. Therefore, study path.
