Exactly what I was looking for
This podcast is fantastic. I recently had my first couple tests of M1 and found myself extremely overwhelmed by the vastly different pace of medical school vs undergrad. I keep feeling like I forget things as soon as I learn them, so I am looking forward to trying out the tips mentioned here.
Also do you think you could do an episode on how to study for anatomy? As in how to balance studying lecture notes vs cadaver vs netters diagrams...its a lot to handle and im not sure where the balance should lie! Thanks so much!
