There are several therapeutic groups (IT groups) in each of the Units A, B and C. The IT group names within each unit are listed. The first two digits of the IT group are found in brackets after the IT group name. Example unit B: Nervous system (01). The review is carried out as follows: 2017 Unit A; 2018 Unit B; 2019 Unit C; 2020 Unit A etc.
