Hey guys!

I know a couple of people that have just finished their first year in Medicine (at different Unis) and both have said that the volume is so huge and it is hard to stay on top of it.

I just thought I'd ask some of the Med Students on this forum how do they study? Quite frankly, I'm really looking forward to it, and know I'll delve right into it. But do you guys have tips or strategies to remember the content that you learn from week to week? What methods do you put into place to retain the info for the long term (because I know some unis have semester exams but others have end of year exams)?

Thanks so much in advance, I'm looking forward to reading what you guys do. Very Happy

1. keep good notes, and keep them incredibly well organised and indexed. It will take you maybe 20 minutes a week to sort them out, but trust me.... for first year, they're a life saver.

Mind you.... I've just finished second year, and have just thrown EVERY note I've written away.

2. Listen in lectures. It seems obvious, but you'll be blown away how many people show up, and tune out. If you listen, you'll take away gems that will help you study, and will help iron out the problem areas.

3. Have a life. Studying medicine should be fun... not just hard work. I think the best test, is to see whether you're still capable of spending time with people and NOT talking about medicine. if you can't, then you're studying too hard.

Good luck!! its a great ride so far

Thanks for your tips Lovebite. Can I ask, in your own experience, what has been the best way you have found to keep your notes organised? As you mentioned you are throwing away all your notes, I assume you handwrote them?

Did you at all keep your notes electronically as well?

I have heard that some students use a program like OneNote to edit their lecture notes. Have you had any success with this?

Thanks

PS: why are you throwing away your notes? Such valuable valuable pieces of paper!! lol

Look, there is no perfect system.... its all about fidning what works for you.

I handwrote all of my notes, but thats because for me, I find the process of writing them to be more beneficial if I use a pen and paper.

I bought loads of folders with plastic sleeves.

Other people used one note, and seemed to like it. I guess it depends on whether you really want to keep them all for the long term.

They are gruff with potential customers and quickly lose patience with people who aren't experts in the field themselves. These contribute to catabolism and metabolism which together curb acne occurrences including pimples, depression and anxiety which are major factors that give rise to acne stimulation or outbreaks. So what is the solution? Ventilation fans will all have a CFM rating which is what tells you how many cubic feet of atmosphere the fan moves per minute. Keep it on the face for 15-20 minutes. Rub one half of a cut lemon for the natural improvement of scars.
