Study for yourself

How to Remember What you Wrote Down in Lecture
Friday August 1, 2014

study-hack:

From a question I answered here

  1. Listen actively- think about what you’re hearing, connect new and old information and write things down in your own words
  2. Pay attention and ask questions: it helps if you understand what’s going on.
  3. Review your notes after class (in the evening)
  4. Study a little every weekend- it’s better than studying for 12 hours in 1 day.

I really really like psychology but I suck at it, I love learning about it but I can hardly remember anything after writing notes :(

study-hack:

That means you need to think while you’re writing notes. Writing stuff down mindlessly won’t help you remember anything.

  • Rephrase what your lecturer is saying and write it down in your own words
  • Think about what you’re writing, connect new informatiion to what you’ve already heard/learned
  • Test yourself—> active recall is the key. The more you bring it up from your memory, the better you’ll remember.
  • Participate in class discussions
  • ASK QUESTIONS. Once you say it out loud, you’ll remember it better. It also helps if you understand the material.
  • Review your notes in the evening. Read them out loud, tell yourself or a friend what you’ve learned that day.

Hope this helps!

Cranquis Podcast
"Humans on both sides of the examination table"
"Rich doctor myth. That is a small minority." And when you have health care rhetoric drumming that myth into existence, it makes it hard to strengthen the physician to patient relationship. 
"Shock how much money people think you are making and how much debt you have"
"Doctors have a responsibility to be financial transparent. Income is usually a fair income, the income is not why we went into medical, but our income keeps us in medicine."
"{Tumblr medblr community} we are moving through the trench."
My thoughts
This podcast was excellent. Social determinants of health, med blr community, premed bloggers (myself). I found myself nodding and thinking doctors are real people, telling myself stop romanizing and dehumanizing the profession I want so bad, just work in the present moment, pray, and medical school will come to me, I will make it. 
I am also taking the Mcat in September, and I also think sometimes about what if I do not get into medical school:
I have no idea where my life will go. (I know, scary)
The hoops medical students must jump through are easy to forget about, but very real. Many of my classmates have studied for and taken the MCAT multiple times …. laying awake in bed agonizing over whether your failure to grasp Organic Chemistry might be a sign of your future competence as a physician is horrible. Merit based, competition, is exciting and also very stunted in terms of viewing students who complain as lazy or ungrateful when the students are being human.
Then, enter medical school (if lucky) and residency, notorious for being times of dangerously low sleep, health, time ….. How can it all be done? Something’s gotta give. I’ve always promised myself that I would prioritize family, friends, and happiness above all things. But I’ve also promised myself that I would rather be no doctor than a mediocre one.
In the end, an intense love for the human body and an intense love for people prevails. While I want to help people, and “cure”, I feel as a doctor I want to connect with patients, educate them about their health, and weaken fear. Being sick is a fear. While I cannot abolish that fear I can reduce the amount. Since I was senior in high school cranquis has been a mentor and asset. For that I am grateful. 

I respect medicine, the mcat, medical students, health professionals, because the professions puts a value on healing, and competition.

I understand this may seem as a ramble but I have a few questions. If you are a health student/professional, how would you answer the following:

Do you think increasing access to healthcare will improve health disparities?

What are your thoughts on medical (MD/DO, PA, NP) education, am I over- exaggerating the context, or I am finding realistic insights?

What are your thoughts on healthcare, can the biomedical and psychosocial model ever combine?

Reflecting on your experience as health student/professional, do you wish there was more collaboration among md-phd, do, pa, np?
