Best Study Efficiency, Note Taking, and Flashcard Techniques in Medicine for 2020 – Recap Part 1

Dive into studying and time management in medical school, as well as note-taking and flashcard techniques.

In part 1 of our 2019 Best Episodes Recap, we will review some of the highlights from our expert interviews. Part 1 will cover study efficiency, time management in medical school, group studying, note-taking techniques, and even a brief overview of flashcard techniques.

Exploring the techniques that work for us, personally, will greatly reduce the weekly effort and time it requires to cover all of the material required for your studies. Knowing your purpose in studying this material (short vs long-term) can also determine what techniques are going to be more beneficial. We may wish to stick with regular notes for less important material, make graphic Mind Maps for outlines, or move tricky material into our spaced repetition flashcard decks.
