The First Week is Over…I Survived

It is Monday twilight and I literally just woke up from a plenteous needed power nap before I rouse reviewing today’s lecture material, which is on neural tissues and version histological slides (yay). I have at this time realized what studying in med chide is really like and I could not have existence more thankful for the program that I am in. I esteem now realized that my study habits that I be seized of so precisely mastered in my undergraduate station, does not necessarily transfer over to the degree that easily at this level. This is what my typical day looked like the ~ time week:

Wake-up: 6:00am
Lecture: 7:30-11:30am
Lunch: 11:30-12:00pm
Academic Success reprimand: 12:00-1:00pm
Usually heap of skin and bones lecture/Meeting/Reviewing questions: 2:00-3:00pm
Study: 4-9:00pm
Sleep: 10pm-6:00am

After leaving campus, I take on the point an hour off and study from 4:00pm-9:00pm reviewing grave concepts that I learned that epoch, and re-writing a bulk of my notes and highlighting conditions I am not familiar with. I be delivered of realized this past week that it is WAY in addition time consuming. I did well up~ my quiz today (we have some individual and group quizzes every Monday, and today we had another anatomy lecture after an intellectually stimulating break of day, it was an extremely long and exhausting epoch..but it is definitely practice conducive to the island in May), but I felt that I “from one side of to the other-studied” if that makes any faculty of perception. I learned almost too much of everything, and not harvested land subject really well. I literally memorized perfect chapters, where I needed to be sure only the pathway. This week I gain made the decision to re-appear in ~ing and review the textbooks while highlighting of importance terms, and only then will I jot down out pathways and diagrams on my of a ~ color-board. This will save me time and direction help me memorize the material in a greater quantity “active” studying type way. I order see how it goes!

I am slowly realizing the circumstance that I am in this in quest of the long haul…four more years and potentially four again years of residency for my Physiatry program. The wild part is…I am actually excited well-nigh it. We are such complex human beings and acquirements about how our bodies fight distant from pathogens without the use of vaccines it completely amazing or how B cell and T cells bear somatic recombination to create specific antibody receptors as antidote to certain antigens in our body..completely without us knowing. This process is happening totality the time. I also love collaborating in groups, and tiresome to come up with the “best” answer in a clinical scenario, and helping others succeed and be an intelligent being complex material along the way.

I am definitely tired, unless I think that was my be in possession of fault of my time-management this out of the reach of week. I am not used to having aggregate this free time in the late afternoon/evenings so I filled it with studying instead. I also want to question out that yes, it is definitely a portion busier than undergrad, but for coming MERP students out there it is definitely doable. I discern I am only one quiz in, moreover if you study properly and stud aside some time for yourself both week, you will do fine. You be possible to do anything you put your intellect to, and I honestly believe that we are through all ages. learning, so why not challenge that acquired knowledge?

Off to make some dinner! Steve and I are having chicken (according to Steve), Veggie patty (for me), and bombastic bowl of ceasar salad (for the pair…no bacon bit though :)). Yum.

Keep me in your thoughts this week and understand that even though I don’t own time to post every week, I am reflection about it 24/7!
