Medical Mnemonist Podcast

The Pre-Med & Med Student Guide to Effective Learning, Recap Part 2

Finish the review of the evidence-based study skills and spaced-repetition techniques covered in Part 1.

In this episode, we finish off the evidence-based study skills and spaced-repetition techniques we eluded to in Part 1 (Episode 46) of this mini-series. Much of the research conducted by the Institute of Education Sciences suggests that certain learning methods, such as spacing and rehearsal practice, provide strong evidence to their effectiveness. This should be no surprise to frequent listeners to this podcast as these topics are mentioned in a majority of interviews conducted!

On top of these skills, how to perform them, and mistakes to be aware of, the topic of mentorship arises later in the episode. What are some of the benefits of having a mentor and how can you search for clinical experiences earlier on in your education? Those who seek more direct advice on these topics can reach out to Chase, or visit FindARotation on the social media links below.
