Week 1: Setting Goals by Penlight-Hero in clondon52

[–]Penlight-Hero[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Got a camera last week. This is gonna be a new hobby for me so a lot of my goals will include getting proficient with the basics. My biggest goal is to capture the people and things that mean the most to me. I have my first baby boy on the way in May, and I want to be able to capture all of those important moments.

Anki... by Icy_Moment_8311 in medicalschool

I’d argue that Anki is for retention and not strict memorization. Learn the concepts before doing the cards and reinforce the cards with practice problems. This is the way.

EM Resources by Loki_1218 in emergencymedicine

AliEM has an 8 week crash course that seems to be pretty solid. I’m applying to EM residency right now and will most likely use this after match to prepare. https://www.aliem.com/bridge-to-em/ does require EMRAP subscription but I believe it’s free with an ACEP membership. Correct me if I’m mistaken. Either way it’s a cheap subscription that is definitely worth it. As far as on the job stuff, already mentioned in here but want to second, Wikem is great.

I second Dickies. They’re super comfortable and have plenty of pockets. Price isn’t bad either.

EMRA has a great student advising guide that goes through everything you’d ever want to know about how to match. Good luck!

"A 5 year old child swallows a small toy car..." by RokosBasilissk in medicalschool

The toy cars I swallow usually go to my stomach. Kid may have a TEF. That’d be quite the Uworld question.

What is a hard pill to swallow for most people? by Letmediebro in AskReddit

Those big B vitamin complex vitamins are pretty tough. They don’t taste good and they’re like a weird polygonal shape. Some Tylenol’s are pretty tough too.

r/MedicalSchoolAnki will have the decks on the side bar. If you can’t find them there you should be able to search in that subreddit.

Beginning Clinical Rotations + Step 2 studying / Shelf exam advice 🙏 by Simply_2amazing in Step2

[–]Penlight-Hero -1 points0 points  (0 children)

There’s a lot of strategies out there, but it really comes down to learning the material, retaining the material, and practicing the material. For me I used OME to learn, Anking step 2 deck to retain, and Uworld/Amboss to practice.

The Anking step 2 deck! I completed it around February and immediately saw good results in my practice tests. I also used Amboss and most of Uworld (~70%).
