LIFE AFTER ENTERING A MEDICAL COLLEGE
Life at a Medical College is different from life at school or outside the medical college. Being able to go through all the stress and exhaustion of the process of pre-medical preparation and ultimately becoming successful in achieving the goal of entering a medical college is a very big achievement itself. But that doesn’t end the quest, it’s just the beginning of a new era of hard work and life at a Medical College goes with various challenges, and to become a successful physician and beat those challenges a few tips are mentioned below:
MOSTLY IT’S HARD WORK ALONGSIDE SMART WORK:
Studying medicine comes with a certain expectation to work harder on average than most other fields students. There are generally more contact hours than other subjects with practical’s and lectures taking up a great deal of time. Of course, it’s not just the contact hours when you are working, lecture notes need to be read over, essays have to be written, practical’s should be prepared for and keeping on top of it all can be a challenge. This is especially the case as your workload will vary from week to week, sometimes having a great deal of work and sometimes having a whole week with very little to do. Therefore it’s important to be flexible with how you work and appreciate that sometimes you will have to put in a long stint of work in order to have the time off when you need it. So hard work and smart work are needed to achieve the best.
ORGANISATION IS KEY:
Studying at a university is a real contrast to being a student at school and one of the real challenges is organizing your work and activities. You can no longer rely on your parents to keep a calendar of everything that’s going on and instead you must sort things for yourself. Add to this the fact that a significant proportion of time at university will be spent feeling tired, due to excessive studying or partying, and there is a recipe for potential disaster. Practicals may coincide with sports matches or different events might be happening when you’re meant to see your family. The most important thing is to have some kind of system, whether it is a paper diary you keep with you or a calendar on your phone. Make sure you’re not the one who is always nearly missing things or running round at the last minute trying to work out where you’re supposed to be.
TAKE TIME TO RELAX:
At medical colleges life is very tough; despite making your utmost efforts you might not be able to get the highest marks or completely solve your assignments. But that is okay; for at medical college you are studying with intelligent students. You shouldn’t get discouraged and after completing your work you should take time to relax by either playing games, going out with friends or involving yourself in some other healthy activity. You should lessen your stress and work with a fresh mind.
- DR. NAJEEB LECTURES:
In the slim probability that you find yourself caught in circumstance portrayed above, and nothing from the above referenced techniques work, or regardless of whether you don’t want to evaluate every one of them at this time, you can always go to Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures for best assistance. These are video lectures which are an incredible source for self-studying. Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures are the world’s most prominent and popular lectures, covering every one of the aspects of Gross Anatomy, Neuro-anatomy, Embryology, Histology, Physiology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Pharmacology, Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology. These lectures cover practically every one of the subjects offered in the present medicinal educational programs of most renowned medical colleges. They contain visualization of what you study in your books. The hand-drawn illustrations in these lectures make it very easy to grasp the concepts. Furthermore, one can get lifetime access to these lectures and even download the app to avail them anytime, anywhere
At medical college or at any university you cannot do everything yourself. It’s perfectly normal to not know a subject or to be unable to understand a lecture. You can always go to your friends and seniors for guidance. At college, your links with batchmates and seniors help you in many ways. Being aware of the fact that nobody exploits you, you should always help others; form good bonds and ask for assistance where needed.
At the end we would like to remind you that you are extremely capable individuals who can make great contributions to the medical world. Don’t give up in hard times, keep our tips in mind and Good luck!
