    Tips and Tricks for a Flourishing Life at Medical College

      Find a Study Friend

      It may be helpful to study in the same course with a classmate or a group of people for exams that are more content-based. This way, together you can go over the topics and quiz and teach the content to each other. Also, telling others what you know will help you in understanding the concepts in detail. Students in study groups usually learn more easily than those learning alone. If you don’t understand a definition, ask questions from your fellow members of the group that will help you understand. A study group helps you to equate your notes to other students. If you’re not a great note-taker, you can see how other students take notes and correct any errors that they may have made. If you’re a great note-taker, your fellow students can use your notes to help fill in the gaps. So, grab a study buddy to improve your performance.

      Study in a quiet environment, with limited distractions    

      Every time you study in a noisy environment, you often find yourself listening to conversations with other people, or letting your mind wander away. That does little to help you concentrate on your studies. Once you have begun studying in a distraction-free zone, you will be able to concentrate so much more that, in turn, makes studying much less stressful and difficult. When you can concentrate on something you can generally understand the details faster and more effectively. This saves time and a task is achieved in a short span of time. This may sound surprising but, being able to complete your work with higher concentration helps you save your time and energy. If you can concentrate more deeply on your studies, it is very less likely that you’ll need to find a mentor or repeat a course.

      Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures

      Medicine is one of the most complex and time-consuming fields of study. Only the genuinely cautious and the extremely committed still dream to consider a career in medicine. Medicine is rightly described as a hard field because a person’s life can rely on your learning, performance, skills and abilities. University is a place to learn and research, but also a refuge for so much more. This is your last shelter before getting into the real world. It is the last place you’re in, testing your limits to define your passion, and pursuing your dreams. It is through this complex process that you emerge victorious and ready to face the world, which isn’t just academic. Studies can get tough and frustrating at university, especially at a medical college. The complex formulas and theories need perseverance and long hours of continuous studying. But this is not a cause for concern or disappointment, because there is a way of enjoying a completely fantastic social life and not having to fall back into your academic life. The solution comes in the form of very precise and focused video lectures. Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures are a pool of knowledge delivered in the most comprehensive form. Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures are world-renowned for their efficacy and usefulness. 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.

      Effective Utilization of time

      At medical college, 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. In addition to this, the way that a big extent of time at medical college will be spent feeling exhausted, because of too much studying or celebrating is also disturbing. Practicals may collide with sports matches or a get-together may be going on when you intend to see your family. The most significant thing is to deal with your time productively. Revise your notes on a regular basis and always start early. Whenever any task or test is assigned to you don’t drag it till the last date, rather start early so you have the opportunity to ask others and perform well.

      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.
