    1. Find a study spot, create a schedule, get into a routine
    2. Find a motivated, smart study partner - test each other on the material
    3. Condense material into one note

    I'm in nursing school and something I've found extremely helpful is tutoring other people. It helps for the same reason having a study buddy helps, but you synthesize the information so much better when you're able to break it down for somebody who's having difficulty with it.

    My straight A college student daughter says that taking notes, then rewriting the notes, then explaining the concepts (to me in this case, to another person willing to listen and ask questions) helps solidify information. She sets a study schedule, listens to lo-fi that keeps out other distracting sounds, then does her homework this way.

    My little cousin went to medical school at Yale & Harvard. He is now working in Boston as a pediatric oncologist. I am super proud of him. I cannot even imagine having accomplished so much already in his life. This world is a better place because of people like him & like you & like all doctors and nurses that take such great care of people everyday. The most important thing that you should remember, IMO, is that every patient that you take care of means the world to someone else. 💕 Take care! 🙏👍✌💪😷

    In engineering school I always organized a small study group of 4 or less students. I also chose smart, motivated students. For me, this tip is the number one way to be a successful student. The outline and using spatial clues when you weren’t sure of an answer is another great study tip. It’s surprising how much you can remember when you visualize that outline in your mind’s eye.

    Do you get grades in med school? In my Theology masters program i would tape every lecture. Go home and write it out or fill in the blanks from lecture notes. I would go over every set of notes every day. I would make a mock test on index cards and quiz myself daily. This helped me tremendously.

    I think note taking is the best (the act of writing out notes commits it to memory and then you can go over your notes again later), but it also takes the most time. Passed the pathology boards a few years back with my notes, and pathology is known to be the most difficult board exam to study for because you have to know everything about everything

    Cellini is one of my favorite books, a Harvard Classic, contemporary of Michealangelo. I went back to university with 4 young children as a single parent. I studied at 1:00 a.m. in my bedroom especially on exam days. It was the only time that was without distraction. It was SO difficult but worth it. Holding a full-time job afterwards was even harder but rewarding as I taught school and enjoyed the students.

      You have to be dedicated and a bit of a workaholic to survive. Taking notes as fast as you can for about 6 hours a day, then going to the hospital to see your patients and read their charts, then going to the library to study their diagnosis, treatments, and medications, then writing lengthy care plans, then go to your dorm room and review everything til bedtime so when your nursing instructor "interrogates" you the next day you can reply, and (with some) you better know all the side effects of all the drugs. P.S. ~Half of the freshman class graduated.

    For me medical school began when I started with the pre requisites of Chemistry, physics, biology and math. I went into Paramedic school after completing emt, cardiology, pharmacology and iv therapy. It made it easy to form a base of learning. The hardest part was the first emt course. When I only scored a 76 and did not read the chapters only skimmed through, I realized that every paragraph in the book had a question on the test. My job was NOT to read through a paragraph and go onto the next until I knew exactly what was important enough to be that question. That it. Spend every moment you can absorbing the information.

    Michael, it took 10 years of agonizing learning experiences through college, medical school, and business school to understand the wisdom of your advice. In particular, the crucial importance of going to a specific location to study. You are not studying if you are at Starbucks. Sorry. Most important: you need to “struggle” with the material (like creating your one page synthesis or reading out loud). Don’t fight this “struggle”, rather, welcome it! Great video!

Also, the association with a study partner for me was extremely helpful. It keeps you on your toes and forces you to study and get things done. BTW, what Med School may I ask did you attend? Good luck.

    This is so true for medical school. You have to change strategies multiple times because of the sheer volume of information. I found spatial recognition of notes was important but not neeeeaaaarllly as important as being able to verbalize the answers to questioning. A good study partner is key to do this. The other thing to do if you don't have a study partner is use your smart phone and go through ppt's and record yourself while making everything into a question. Then you can go to the gym and quiz yourself or do whatever and quiz yourself at all times of day and night.
    The brain works by question and answer. If you can go through the question and answers recordings and get them all right a couple times your good to go ace that test.
    Also, if want to do good on boards, find your colleagues who did well on them. Don't get advice from people who did bad or mediocre on boards.

    I had a photographic memory when I was an undergraduate. If it could be put down on a yellow legal pad I could memorize it. So I took copious notes in every class. When I went to law school all that went out the window. You have to be able to think abstractly and to apply from several levels of information simultaneously.

She became a neurooncologist. I became a gastroenterologist. God bless her soul, she developed a neuroblastoma and was the first to pass from my med school class. I still cant fathom that.

    Yes! Spacial recognition is totally me!! I like to squeeze everything of one subject into one page because I know things from location on the page. I would fold a white sheet of paper into 16 rectangles and fill it in. I use to hate flipping to the next page because I felt that a different page is a different subject and once one subject has multiple pages then I can’t remember which page the info is on.

    Fascinating to see how people study. I was lucky that have a near photographic memory - so got through Uni and College of Law - just read and remembered....... Study partner sounds a good idea if it is something you need. I am also glad that I studied in a time when we had books - research has shown that you do not absorb information as well when reading Kindle as if you read from a printed page. Also the act of writing notes is a way of starting to embed info.

    The second time I practiced as a Physician in a Hospital before I went to Medical School at Indiana University and then transferred to North Carolina to finish my Doctorate. I was all of 19 years old and I was given 3 weeks to memorize the entire anatomy of man, woman, and child. I started with the heart and all of the various parts in it and that make it up. I really didn't have a system for memorizing such. I have what some call total recall. But, even that had it's limits. I started with the heart because without the human heart know other body part would exist or function. All mammals need a pretty constant blood pressure to survive.

    Damn💯. I know most of those tips already cause they’re super important. But I appreciate your input on the last tip and physically showing us what you and the other student did with excel and the PowerPoints. That really makes sense; With the outline and condensing down so much to one sheet. And I tend to memorize where things are in my regularly notes too already. I have to re-write usually and speak things out loud without looking at words like you said cause then you know if you actually know and understand or not. So this I feel this could really help, with just making my notes way smaller and the format of it, would be super important. I’m in my second semester of Nursing school and gotta make it through the RN, so I can keep moving up and get into another school 🙂. Thanks for your videos!

    For memorization, studying the material 5 times a day is helpful. Studying away from home is helpful. A grocery store that has a Starbucks is great in the evening after the Starbucks closes. Ask the manager for permission. It was my favorite study location as business was dead after 8pm and that Starbucks closed at 7pm. Store had free wifi too. Pick one in an upscale neighborhood.

    Osteopathic MS1 here. Thanks for your videos!
    I wanted to ask about approach. For context: I feel frequently that I do not possess the mental bandwidth to UNDERSTAND everything in medical school in the time allotted as you've described. I try to understand key concepts in physiology, biochem, genetics, like renal acid/base compensation, heart hemodynamics, cystic fibrosis, G-proteins, etc. and can get a passable amount of the factual detail of it to the point of being able to answer a multiple choice questions, but it isn't really useful in the sense that I'd be able to synthesize that detail stuff for real-world use. That being said, I do try to take about 2 hours a day to do something not related to school because I'm not interested in any of the money specialties and I don't want to get so depressed that I drop out, so I probably don't study the way that the ortho or derm gunners do. I'm thinking FM or EM at the moment.
    I want to ask: for the stuff where you just learn it well enough to be able to answer a multiple choice question right, how much of the information they give you in preclinical is actually important to understand vs what you can go back and review later when and as you need it in your career?

    I was in school before laptops and iPads so what I always implement it was have a notebook for taking notes in another for writing down does help reinforce things.
    30 minutes per night for learning new materials in 15 for reviewing also realizing a test is subjective so everything that you learn may or may not be on the test
    The nap before test do a small review get a good nights sleep wake up the next morning we somewhat calm go take my test and I always do good

      @Lara it depends on the subject. For the most part- I put the most important information in purple (my favorite color) next most important in pink since they go well together- information that’s needs to be memorized exactly I put with bold black over top of purple/pink. Diagrams I need to remember I put in green/orange- depending on how many there are…. I usually keep purple and orange on one side of the page and pink and green on the other. Vocabulary I usually right in blue and underline with the corresponding color for importance- purple pink etc. side notes I red- since they can be significant. On occasion I will use yellow- but it’s rare- since it’s hard to see. For the most part I use the color and placement on the page to recall the note to answer a question on a quiz or test. I don’t know if it makes any sense- but it works for me, in my mind.

    I wish I had some of this when I was in med school. I finished one year and the politics at school turned me off and made see medicine is no longer what it was when I was a kid wanting to be a doctor (I started at age 40). The biggest issue was our exams had so many problems. They didn't proofread them and this led to numerous questions being dropped, in addition to questions being dropped for being bad statistically or profs wrote their questions and forgot to cover some of the material asked on those exams. In those instances, they dropped the questions and if you got them correct, well you were shit out of luck. I had two classes like that were I lost 15% and 17% off my grades bc of those problems and it killed my grades. The admin was like, well only 5 or 6 students were affected in this way, so we're not concerned about it. Several years later, after realizing how many students they were losing bc of this problem (instead of improving the exam issues which could have been easily corrected), they finally implemented a policy that you cannot lose more than half a grade (5%) for those problems. Still, that can mean a huge difference between honors or none and what kind of residency you land.
    The other problem was material covered by each exam. Many schools I heard will end material for an upcoming exam at least a day prior. One of our courses (Molecular Fundamentals of Medicine- covered genetics, pathology, biochemistry, etc) would save mostly pathology for the day right before an exam. It was an entire full day of pathology and each lecture had 95-225 PowerPoint slides chock full of small font material or multiple pics. Additionally, unbeknownst to us until just before the third exam when they finally announced it when exam stats showed about 86% of the class missing these questions, was that when you go into slide view, there are are notes below the actual.slides. They finally told us that all of that info, often what was an extra slide's worth of material for EACH slide, was testable. One of the dean's put a kabosh to that practice very quickly bc one lecture had 220 slides and had an extra 240 pages worth of extra material in the notes for just one lecture that day!! That exam, we had 937 slides, an additional 848 pgs worth of notes below the slides, plus reading and 340 images from the slides and another 275 from reading. From that, there was 37 printed material questions and 22 image questions. All from 7 hrs of lectures the DAY BEFORE THE EXAM!! Literally no one slept the day before the exam and then we'd have lab exams or labs for Essentials of Pt Care or Osteopathic Manipulation Therapy.
    When I left, I was devastated, but my family was tired if me going in by 5 am) (sometimes at 3:30 or 4) and studying until midnight 7 days per week. The only differentiation from that was days our huge yard (we were renting a house in the middle of a very rural community on the TN/KY border), my wife needed help with something like grocery shopping or house stuff, or once in a while to either go to church or an event where we got bonus ots for doing community outreach with doing blood pressure checks, health fairs, etc. I had to make plans just to see my family, go to church (which hardly happened), or just to breath. Holidays? What were those? Plus being in the middle of nowhere with crappy schools, my wife and daughters drove 45 mins each way where my wife taught and both my daughters could get schools with more opportunities. After I left, we moved closer to their schools. A professor of mine told me he got the admin to allow me the chance to reapply if I ever wanted to comeback, but he told me that he was becoming disgusted with medicine himself bc many of the health systems with which they partnered or various large physician practices had told them to begin to to.focus on patients seen per hour bc so many students were leaving school and being shocked. His exact words were "Medicine starting to transform into something where we are training mills instead of doctors.". Despite it being my and my family's choice (as my family would have broken up eventually had I not left) I hate to admit it, buy my lifelong dream of finishing medical school not being realizing put me into a three month depression. And to add insult to injury, after the spring gala to end the year, the admin forgot to remove my name from award voting and both the faculty and my classmates voted me as the best clinical student in the class that year. They asked if I wanted the plaques and I just laughed, although I knew I should have accepted them. My wife was worried it would make me more depressed. I thought about reapplying several years later, but the grading policy hadn't been changed and it was almost 7 years later when it finally did.
    Thankfully, I am going to be starting my PhD in applied public health, studying health issues with first responders, especially mitigating toxic exposures and finding better ways of predicting issues before they become problems. It'll also look at protecting healthcare workers from contaminated patients & hospital disaster planning and issues facing disaster responders. After 15 years working in EDs and EMS, I finally found a use for all of my degrees in toxicology and emergency management that I'll enjoy. Ironically, several of my classmates from medical school called me during the next 3 years and more during residency and told me that I got the better deal or made the better choice in leaving early on. Quite a few were disgusted by how the attitudes became focused on the "treat em and street em" mentality and the whole patients per hour focus.
    As has become a huge problem in the last decade, several didn't ever get residency slot. Today, almost 4,000 graduates each year don't get residency slots and with the pandemic, they began talking about graduating students early, which would have made the problem worse. Since 2010, medical school seats exploded, but residency positions only grew by about 19%. It's a terrible bottleneck. To those who have finished and having a great and fulfilling career, I congratulate you, as I know the sacrifices you've made and the torture you endured. My advice to pre-meds today is to really examine your undergrad preparation, you're weaknesses, and your dedication to this pursuit. If you have any academic weaknesses, prepare to have them blown apart by the rigors of med school so have a plan to mitigate those. If you're having any doubts about going into medicine or aren't willing to devote 110% of your life to this pursuit (and other doctors of mine agree with this advice), either don't do it, really take a hard look at why you want to do it, or figure out how to.do it before you go any further! Lack of planning for doubts or lack of dedication or doing it for reasons other than doing it for yourself or for the greater will leave either sputtering or very dissatisfied. If you're doing it for the money, you'd be better off doing an MBA and residents going through something like a surgical residency quickly get jaded by the fact that the salary you receive amounts to less than minimum for all of the hours worked!

    Interesting you mentioned spacial recognition. In a college environmental studies course exam, I could remember the name of a term when the definition was given. It wasn’t multiple choice. I wrote that I couldn’t remember the term, but it had something to do with sex, and it was explained near the top of page 19 of the text. The term was “panspermia,” and was defined exactly where I said it was. The prof was so entertained by it, he gave me half credit and told the story to the class. So there is something to this idea that the brain can be spatially organized!

    i'm pre-nursing, not med school, but i'm still overwhelmed by the amount of information. having to shuffle through all these sheets of paper, trying to figure out what is or isn't relevant, is tedious. the idea of condensing everything into a single sheet is brilliant. instead of re-reading a bunch of notes you're taking out keywords and elaborating them mentally and you can "feel" where you're not as strong on the information so you can go back and review. thank you so much.

    One thing I've heard multiple times over the years some variation on: "My brother wasn't the smartest one in the family, but boy could he study. He did really well in med school." I never heard, 'oh she's brilliant, aced med school without studying.' Med school is tough. I've had many doctors over the years and I wouldn't say I've noticed anything creative or brilliant about them, but the discipline, focus, ability to crunch information and the dedication seems very specific to good doctors.
    The spatial aspect of the single page of notes is really smart and highly effective. As a former teacher and life long nerd, I would recommend to any student: learn how to study from doctors (med students). As a teacher, I would have students draw pictures/diagrams of the concepts, labeling as they went. When I went through these on the screen or the white board I would use the same exact color scheme. This was a medical school study tip from a doctor.
