    All your work here has been spot on. You are a natural teacher and I am sure that will translate to what kind ofa doctor you will be. I am a doctor, a neurologist in practice in New York City, having graduated medical school in 1982. Clearly the experience has changed to a significant degree but your advice in this episode is brilliant. In many ways, I wish I could start the life experience of going to medical school once again, especially with all the available resources through the internet that was never available when I went through this. The bottom line I have discovered is that it doesn’t matter what medical school one goes to but rather the kind of person you are, your personal motivation and hope that you have the one thing that really cannot be taught, but must be part of the substance of the person one is... and that is empathy. With empathy , you are essentially guaranteed to make a difference in patient’s lives and also that you will continue to love your life’s work. I will continue to watch this series with joy and interest and I thank you for all your fine work.

      Dr. Dustyn Williams says, "Most, if not all, successful medical students succeed in spite of their institution...not because of it." Medicine is self-study. Medical school gives you a checklist and a focused/biased view, then the students go out to find more efficient resources and teach themselves the content.

    The advice about not overusing Anki and looking at past exams early is absolutely GOLDEN! I started learning anatomy for the first time last week (still undergrad) and have 800 flashcards just on the upper and lower limb and released yesterday I don't understand any of the bigger concepts. Thank you so much for this :)

    My Takeaways:
    * Use your seniors, know what you do not know and ask for help
    * Understand the concepts
    * Ask “Why is this bad?”
    * Active recall
    * Spaced repetition
    * Just a little bit of work “each” day (20 mins each day such a difficult task??)
    * “Doing an hour a day is pretty good” Be efficient with it
    ### `Consistency is king`
    * Pre-reading for lectures
    > Textbooks are overrated
    > Use them when you are looking for something specific

    The last point is my favourite! I’m gonna start pre med in a few days and my parents are already pressuring me not to tell others about how I study and really feel disgusted about their mindset. It really makes me happy that you’re telling us to enjoy studying with others rather than just alone.Thank you so much for all the advice you gave in this video! You just lifted my spirits!😊

      @universal Well keep your hobbies, they do help you in the long run. Just tone it down to a few hours per day. And it's best if you start revising your 11th and 12th grade human organ systems. It really really helps in the 1st year is Medschool. And it's your choice if you wanna start studying 1st year syllabus. It's for the best though, so that you can catch up easily with the lectures. They teach you a lot in a very short amount of time.

      @Srishail S Pujar I finished premed a few months ago and just enrolled in medical school. And what you’re saying is true. But finding a studying partner can be just someone who has a lot of knowledge and is at or maybe above your level. Discussing topics, questions and doubts are a good thing in my opinion. And I’m not telling you to stick with a few people, you can just find anyone who studies well and talk with them. Longterm friendships are hard to find, they just come to you naturally. You just have to be yourself and enjoy your activities. I personally separate my study life from my personal life, which makes it easier. Study partners are different from real friends for me because finding a person in both categories is definitely rare. Help others in any way you can and some grateful people will definitely help you in trouble. No worries, you’ve got this. I do study alone, because self study is very very important in medschool. But be sure to discuss with people who love studying as much as you do sometimes, to get new perceptions and questions. It’ll broaden your horizons and studies do show that teaching others helps you absorb and remember information really well.

    For my first lecture of Biology class in freshmen year of college, my professor taught us long term potentiation (essentially active recall), spaced repetition, memory palaces, and organisers. Organisers include the lecture topic, main concepts, main sub-concepts, an organiser (I.e a way to sort such concepts with details examples of sorting includes flowcharts, mind maps, hypothesise/diagnose, table, etc), key words in each sub-topic, 3 boxes for check marks (if you decide to re-do those organisers, and the last is how the sub-topic relates to the bigger picture. We do these for every lecture and it’s really useful for finals.

    You are SO amazing and one of the few people on the internet whom I really appreciate and look up to. It's so rare to find someone whose every idea is just so well-formulated and explained in a way that you need absolutely zero effort to get your head around what that person is trying to say (which is GREAT because it's all this really easy flow of ideas that you find yourself eager to just keep on watching). I could hear you rumbling for hours and it'd add so much to my knowledge on how to study/how to approach medicine and how to just be a really nice, kind and well-rounded person. I'm guilty of being one of those first years on instagram bombarding you with questions and it's so lovely of you to answer us and give us a bit of your time.
    Looking forward to all you upcoming videos and have a lovely day xx

    On the note of pre-reading for lectures- that technique is called 'flipped classrooms'. I'm studying teaching and we are required to do this (and thats how i know what it's called lol) BUT it's a really, really great way of gaining a deeper understanding of a topic, even if you use it to figure out what you don't understand and know what to ask when you are in class. Plus, it kind of works like spaced repetition too ;)

    Peace be to you (AsSalama'laikum)! I'm a new subscriber. Greetings from America!😊🇺🇸 I have been a medically licensed Physician Assistant for almost two decades and currently work as a Hospitalist Physician Assistant in Washington, D.C. where I live with my wife and four children. I am also an erstwhile PA program instructor and admissions committee member! I found you're information INCREDIBLY valuable! I wish I had known this information whilst in school. I was the "Carry my BIG text book and make volumes of 3x5 cards" guy!😅 I probably wasted weeks worth of time! I would add to your video that some of the information found in text books may even be antiquated. It takes about 4 to 5 years to compile and publish the information (I know, I wrote one😥). Thus, by the time the student gets it, the information may be out-dated (esp. concept like "HIV regimens"). I look forward to more of your videos and shall tell my colleagues about your channel! Peace!😁

    Hello, Ali. I’m in my last year of high school and has been planning to go to medical school since I was young, but lately my passion has been decreasing and I’m having different thoughts. Mainly, because most people say that “medicine is too demanding” and “it needs sacrificing” and “if you entre medical school you can’t do ANYTHING ELSE not reading not drawing NOTHING only you and medical school FOREVER ” and I don’t think I can do that, I can’t really focus on one thing, I always combine two projects so I can procrastinate the first by the other and vice versa. I don’t wanna study medicine if that’s all I’d ever do, i still wanna do other things like read fictional books and learn other languages and I don’t know if I’d be able to do that, can you please tell me if that’s possible or at least your general thoughts about this ?

    Hi Doc!! Medical textbooks can really be overrated but in the medical school i'm in, we're required to read pages and pages a day. Ebooks or textbooks? Textbooks can get really expensive, but i'm not sure if i should go digital instead. I've read studies saying we learn better studying printed books. What are your 2 cents regarding my dilemma? I'm a great fan of yours and i would love to hear from you.

      +Ali Abdaal our school doesn't really have lectures. They call it problem-based learning curriulum so they give us topics to study about a day before the group study session. Basically it's like practicing active recall everyday. We can't bring notes so we make sure to know the concepts well so we could discuss it with other medical students. One doctor is assugned per group and we are grades according to how well we knoe the concepts, most of the time we are given medical cases as we discuss it basing on the concepts we have learned the night before the session. At the start of year, medical students are divided into study groups and we guys meet everyday for our study session. At the end of the week, we are given 'wrap ups' by our professors who basically explain the most important stuff since they already expect us to learn the bulk of the topics after our group study sessions. Yeah. That's why we really need books here.

    Hi Ali, thank you very much for taking some time off to make this video (and the Active Recall/Spaced Repetition videos you made previously), it was really useful! Big fan of your content. I would just like to check with you on the following specifics (which I think will help quite a number of us on your channel):
    1) At what point in your studies do you usually begin using Anki? Do you use it while learning and understanding content for the first time / as a "final revision tactic" of sorts used before exams / something else?
    2) I understand that Anki automatically schedules questions at varying time intervals according to how difficult you perceive them to be. However, I find that this irregular frequency will often clash with your Medical Spreadsheet method where you go by specific topics and not subject as a whole. Personally, how do you synchronise the schedules of these two platforms together during your studies? Do you mix them together, or separate them?
    3) I also noted that you mentioned 3 active recall methods which you used in your studies: Anki flashcards, making notes without referring to textbooks or lecture material, and writing questions for yourself during lectures and testing yourself when you get back home and over time via spaced repetition. Which method worked best for you, and in what kind of scenarios would you use each method for?
    Would greatly appreciate it if you could provide some insights into this. Thank you Ali!! :)

    well maybe other schools isnt like ours? but in our med schools here, it is actually highly important to recognize and have effort for your grades in the first year, because it is like a first pre-year to calculate your grades, and then just by what grade you have, you will be transformed to department and study there. for example, there's pharmacology department, biology, and radiology, and depending on what grades you have by the end of the year, it let you in a department you choose, so it is kinda important

    Hi Ali, can you share links to some of the papers on the effectiveness of active recall you mention? Nothing will make me take up the strategy like examining the data first-hand and I am struggling to find any particularly relevant articles on Google Scholar, save for 1 which found no difference between active and passive techniques in vet students.

    As medical students and as doctors we have to learn a list of a ton of drugs, and by far the best way of doing that is by using them.

    I hope you talked about how to memorize lectures you take everyday. I go home and understand each lecture and then i have this tempting feeling to memorize and save everything written in the lecture with the same Grammar and then write it on a notebook. this takes me hours and hours, and i wanted to know if it is really helping me or not. what do you think?
