The Medical School Podcast

English, Sciences, 2 seasons, 30 episodes, 10 hours, 39 minutes
This show attempts to answer one question - what are the best and worst ways to study in medical school? Too often, students of medicine use low-yield study strategies and end up selling themselves short. The show focuses on the most effective ways to learn and remember the material, test-taking skills, time management, and ways that you can study less but study more effectively. We'll also debunk common myths about studying in medical school. These are strategies I utilized over the years that took me from barely passing my exams to scoring in the 98th percentile on my board exams. Support this podcast:

How to Learn Anything in Medical School

To learn in medical school, you should use a 5-step process for any lecture that you get.  First, take the time to listen to the lecture.  Listen to what the instructor emphasizes.  Then go back and read the lecture as if you are reading a book.  After that, transcribe the information, preferably with Anki.  Using Anki is the most effective way to transcribe information because using creating your own flashcards will force you to think about the material critically.  Then perform active recall.  This means doing your flashcard reviews multiple times before your exam.  Make sure to end with practice questions.  You should start doing them a few days before your exam to fill any gaps in knowledge you have.  Be sure to visit and take the 90-minute master class.  We will teach you everything you need to know to use Anki in medical school. --- Support this podcast:
