How to Prosper in a WSU Medical School

Find you’re Area of Interest and Pursue It

Building a perception of motivated curiosity is necessary for a deep understanding of large amounts of complicated information, which is, indeed, one of a student’s important duties. To understand and maintain knowledge, and do well in exams, you have to have a legitimate sense of curiosity and involvement in your courses. Without that element of motivation and purpose, it may seem like boredom, a dull and pointless task for your degree. If that is the case, it can be challenging for you to recall everything you learn in your textbooks and hear in your lectures, irrespective of the forms of study you follow. In all the courses aim to find areas of interest and a strong sense of intent. You should be in charge of establishing your interest in what you are learning.

Attend Lectures

The very first suggestion is that you should regularly attend your classes. Instructors very less often mark attendance and so students have an excuse for not going to classes, knowing they can review the same content comfortably at home. Quite often, by explaining a complicated concept in his own words or by providing an illustration that is too lengthy to be included in the slides, lecturers add value to their slides. Knowing these extra items also speeds up the learning process, not to mention the lack of interruption during lectures and the ability to contact the teachers directly after the lesson. Therefore, a two-hour lecture can be twice or three times the length of the analysis if you do it alone. This creates the expression ‘ lazy students go to lectures.’ So, try to attend lectures for better understanding and better scores.

Conquer Stress

The very first phase of anxiety control is to alleviate the effects of stress. Types of strategies for treating symptoms involve taking a stroll, practicing yoga, listening to music, and “expressing” about the stress. These are intended to reduce the effects of more extreme stress. When the effects are more eased you can find the cause of the tension. Time constraints, the shift from school to college life, jobs, boarding, career, schooling, and harmony of life, and work can all contribute to your anxiety. Comprehending where the stress originates will enable you to focus where it matters most. Taking a few days off to deal with the origin of anxiety is going to make a huge improvement in your everyday life. When you’ve conquered the stress and anxiety disorder you’ll be able to work with a calm mind and function well.

Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures

Many universities offer a wide range of courses, services, and learning tools, but students do not think the material provided in their classes and lessons is of great value to their careers. Related observations frequently suggest that the classes have little to do with the general objectives that universities appear to endorse, or that professors make inadequate attempts to explain the general ambitions of their classes and why the material matters. Dr. Najeeb’s lectures relate every concept to the goal of that respective course so that students do not find any concept boring, unnecessary, or as wastage of time. Another drawback being faced by medical students is that though there are good teachers for undergrad programs but for graduate and postgrad programs the teachers are inexperienced and are unable to teach the students. Dr. Najeeb with his experience of more than 32 years can exceptionally handle courses for graduate programs. By explaining every concept in the amount of detail required and removing every ambiguity that a student might have related to medical studies. Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures are not only confined to a single domain of the medical but you can get your hands on priceless knowledge for every stage be it MCAT, M.S., MD, or Ph.D. 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. They are video lectures that cover almost all the topics in the current medical curriculum of most 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. 80% of medical students in 190 countries rely on these videos. Dr. Najeeb employs hand-drawn diagrams to inspire the learning process as he believes that lifelong knowledge comes from simple concepts. Dr. Najeeb has assisted many million students by clearing their concepts. Furthermore, one can get lifetime access to these lectures and even download the app to avail them anytime, anywhere.

Make Use of Your Senses

The more senses you use to understand something, the more the brain can engage in memory retention. In one study, a series of emotionally neutral images were shown to adults, each depicted with an odor. They hadn’t been asked to remember what they had seen Later, a set of images were shown, this time without odors, and asked to say which one they had seen before. They had excellent recall for all the odor-paired pictures, and particularly for those associated with good smells. Brain imaging showed that when people saw items originally associated with odors, the piriform cortex, the brain’s main odor-processing region, became active, even though the smells were gone, and the participants had not attempted to identify them. Check all the senses as you walk into the Unknown. You should also make good use of the senses to understand the concepts. In the end, we would like to assure you that there are always ups and downs in life. Don’t lose hope, keep up with the hard work, and Good Luck!

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
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.
