Student Life at Christian Medical College (CMC)

After consistently working for months to get into Christian Medical College (CMC) you have done a job well done as it is a task not everyone can succeed at. However, this is just the beginning of the career you are going to make for yourself, the field of medical takes time and dedication and is like a marathon where one cannot slow done. Here are a few heads up of what to do and what to expect in your university life:

    Hardwork And Dedication

    As stated before, university is a marathon and you cannot lose hope or pause even for a second. When your university starts, to make life easier for yourself always revise daily so that you do not have a lot of work load when exams are near. Always set a timetable for the things you need to get done, like assignments or preparation of an exam and get them done as soon as possible. Never leave anything for the next day when it can be done on that day.

    Making Friends

    Friends make university life so much better so choose your friends wisely as you’ll be with them through your entire degree and will need them in times of hardships as well. Avoid conflicts; if you do end up in one try resolving it as soon as possible because it would be advantageous in the long run. Try to be a little sharp minded and keep yourself from getting exploited. Help out others, this way you can make more allies than enemies and they could end up helping you in your time of need.

    How To Study

    In university you will experience that you will have to do a lot of studying on your own unlike school. There will be times when only attending lectures is not enough. Suppose, for one course, you end up with a lecturer whose methods of teaching do not resonate with your methods of learning. In such a situation you can always go to the teacher himself or the teachers assistant.

    However, if still you are facing problem the best way to study is studying in a group with your friends. As each and every person has a strong hold on different topics, group study can help you understand some topic you are lacking in and it can further tighten your hold on a topic which you are good at when you teach it to someone else. Set a schedule with your friends on when to study together.

    Dr. Najeeb Lectures

    In times when all the above methods fail to teach the student where he is having difficulty in learning, the internet has provided us with Dr. Najeeb whose video lectures are a great source of self-studying. Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures are the world’s most popular medical Lectures, covering all the topics of Gross Anatomy, Neuro-anatomy, Embryology, Histology, Physiology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Pharmacology, Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology. The hand-drawn illustrations in these lectures make it very easy to grasp the concepts. Furthermore, one can get a lifetime access to these lectures and even download the app to avail them anytime, anywhere.

This is singularly the best investment I made for the first year of medical school. Each video is a jackpot of information with amazing drawings, great energy, and a phenomenal professor!
Kathryn Giroux Whitefish, Ontario
Kathryn Giroux
Currently, the only things saving my embryology and 1st-trimester ultrasound marks – keep the wealth of education flowing! Highly recommended!
Maryam Moradi The University of Texas, Austin
Maryam Moradi
I bought lifetime access because I believe there is no better source for learning the foundation of medicine. I strongly recommend him to anyone who cares about true learning and not merely memorizing!
Jackson David Reynolds University of North Georgia
Jackson David Reynolds
Dr. Najeeb Lectures are top notch. Comprehensive medical lectures of the utmost quality across all preclinical (and many clinical) topics. Fantastic for deepening one’s understanding for clinical practice and licensing/board examinations.
Jacob Joseph Columbus, Ohio
Jacob Joseph
Dr. Najeeb is the single most spectacular medical teacher you will ever have! I love this man. He has clarified everything from the coagulation cascade, immunology, neurology, and embryology. His sense of humor and brilliant illustrations make everything stick well in your memory. His ability to illustrate 3-dimensional relationships has been useful for excelling in anatomy. I cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful work you do. I recommend your lectures to anyone who wants to truly understand medicine!
Ann Ilaria Mayrhofer London School of Hygiene.
Ann Ilaria Mayrhofer
I’m grappling with my online studies in Infectious Disease at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. It’s made me realize what a visual learner I still am. So these vids are making what was murky crystal clear. While I am easily distracted when I have to do hours of straight reading, I am glued to the videos. I’ve looked for a series of such videos for months. A million thanks – Dr Najeeb has a true passion for teaching and can convey highly complex topics in an understandable and fun way.
