10 TIPS TO BECOME A BETTER MEDICAL STUDENT
1- Remeber your long-term goals.
Becoming a doctor is not easy, you will be responsible for patients life that means if you are lazy studying now, you may be a direct cause of a case of preventable death. That means- please study hard understand your responsibility.
2- Create an interest in what you have to study.
It helps to enjoy… for example if you want to be a surgeon you should study anatomy well , so anatomy is not only a subject of cadavers , anatomy is the first step to be a good surgeon.
3- Have a motivation poster.
Place the poster so you see it while you study. The poster should include positive words and a picture depicting success. You can buy one or even make your own. You can also read inspirational stories about real people who have achieved success through effort , for example read the successful story of Dr.Ben Carson.
4- Set reasonable goals for a study session.
You probably wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get very far if you look at your study session as “mission impossible.”
5- Write a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœto-doÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ lists.
Write down everything you have to do. It feels so good when you cross them off and you can gain confidence and build momentum from seeing how much youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve done.
6- Establish a comfortable environment.
You will be more inclined to study if you feel comfortable (I donÃ‚Â´t mean your bed).
7- Try studying somewhere new.
By setting aside a dedicated place for studying, you can associate that particular location with concentrating. Experts call this an Ã¢â‚¬ËœanchorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, and you could choose a coffee shop or a quiet corner of the library.
8- Whatever you do- try not to study in the bedroom.
Working here may make you feel particularly tempted to take a nap.
9- Try out different study techniques.
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t just sit there reading a textbook, and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t just sit there writing notes. If you like singing, create a song with everything you need to know. Create a mind map that will help you to link everything together. Through mixing things up, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to keep it a little more exciting.
10- Eliminate distractions.
It is a must for you to eliminate distractions , close your room door , shut down your laptop , make your mobile silent , bring a bottle of water and snacks near you before starting your study session.
Good luck med students 🙂
