Students are not just selected based on their grades, but also on their passion, drive, and humanitarian spirit. We have found that these qualities make excellent physicians. Hence, JSS Medical College’s student activity groups tend to be more than networking opportunities and social hubs, but also philanthropic outlets where students take part in service projects.

After Getting into JSS Medical College

Firstly, if you make it this far, then congratulations! Because getting into a medical college is no less than a challenge, not only in India but all over the world too. And if you get selected for JSS Medical College than you are probably one of the hard workers who deserve that their talent is groomed by one of the best professionals of the medical industry. By the intention of warning you, and not scaring you away, we would like to point out that life at a medical college is not easy, may it be any college. Even the most intelligent and hardworking people sometimes get frustrated and tangled in all the work along with extra-curricular activities. So to give you a heads up and a few guidelines on how to deal with basic issues that students may face in a medical college are listed below:

Managing Time:

To stay on top or even survive in a medical college you need to stay up to date on everything. Managing time can be hard and a lot of work can go to waste, deadlines can be missed, marks can be lost and it can even affect your health if a proper schedule is not formed and followed. The minute the studying starts you need to start organizing your tasks according to their importance and impact. You can either make a schedule by hand or use applications available for this purpose which can even remind of tasks to be done. Never leave something on tomorrow, try to get every assignment/worksheet/homework you get as soon as possible. Keep a track of your classes, carefully read your college time table so that you don’t end up accidentally missing a lecture because you read the time table wrong (believe us, that happens).

A Little Formal Education and a lot of DIY:

Once you are done with your school and then intermediate studies, do not expect things to run that smoothly from there onwards. Because you have to enter professional life after college, college is your trial where you learn how to deal with people around you and do most of your work on your own. Hence in college, it will be your and only your job to make sure you’re on top of your work, your friends, teachers, or anyone else will not take the responsibility of making sure you understand everything and complete whatever work is required. Teachers will give lectures and that is probably all the formal education you will be getting, there will be no spoon-feeding so you will have to add a lot of do-it-yourself to it. Research, practice and ask questions. “Practice makes perfect” it is said. Do not depend on lecturers to teach you every single thing; it is not even humanly possible for them to do so with such a high number of students. The point being, a lot of self-help will be involved in helping you achieve your goals.

Dr. Najeeb Lectures:

As stated previously, there will be numerous times when self-studies will be required. There can be plenty of reasons for that i.e. you might have missed some lectures or the teacher assigned to you might not be so good at delivering the lectures, or their way of delivering lectures might not match your way of learning. For that, you can either ask Teacher’s Assistants or your classmates to help but even that can fail at times. For such times, will be your guiding star. 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. Furthermore, one can get lifetime access to these lectures and even download the app to avail them anytime, anywhere.

Clinical Learning and Long Term Retention:

Just as no two human beings can ever be the same in their life experiences, no two students can have the same clinical experience. Your experience will be what you make of it. Keep in mind that whatever you learn is not to be forgotten. You are opting for a career that requires retention of this knowledge for a lifetime. To look at the short term aspects, what you learn will be there again in your finals, and again during residency when you start treating actual patients. So whatever you learn, make sure you understand it completely now, casual look=ups are fine to jock up your memory when required but if you don’t understand the concept you will have to do it later on.

People Management:

Throughout your life, you will get to meet new and different people. Consider your life at this college as training for that. Here too, you will meet different kinds of people. You will have to learn how to assess a person; it will be for your good. Avoid trouble and steer clear of bad influencers. Even if you end up having a bad experience with some, do not get your hopes down, instead, consider it a lesson. At the end, we would like to assure you that there are always ups and downs in life. Don’t lose hope, keep our tips in mind 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

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

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!

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.
