Rosalind Franklin Medical School – Chicago Medical School


Rosalind Franklin Medical School campus view

History

The Chicago Medical College was established in 1912 and was known as the Chicago Hospital- College of Medicine which was a nonprofit school established for people who could not attend night school at that time. In the 1960’s Dr. John Sheinin advocated that another university would be established which would train disciplines of all medical students together. In 1967, the University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School (UHS/CMS) was established. Then in 1968 the university established the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and then in 1970 the School of Related Health Sciences (now the College of Health Professions) was established. The university was first located in Chicago and in 1980 it moved to its current location; at 3333 Green Bay Road in North Chicago. Then in 1993 the university was renamed after its chairman and was known as Herman M. Finch University of Health Sciences. In 2004 the university was again renamed Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in honor of Dr. Rosalind Franklin, whose work with X-ray crystallography provided the data and scientific basis for a description of the structure of DNA, the single most important advance in modern biology.

The applicant also has to take an MCAT test, if the applicant submits multiple exams then the most recent one will be considered.

For the application to be complete the applicant has to submit letters of recommendation. The applicant has to choose one of the three choices for submitting the letter of recommendation:

  • Committee Letter: A letter authored by a pre-health committee or pre-health advisor and intended to represent your institution’s evaluation of you. A Committee Letter may or may not include additional letters written in support of your application. This is sometimes called a Composite Letter.
  • Letter Packet: A packet or set of letters assembled and distributed by your institution, often by the institution’s career center. A Letter Packet may include a cover sheet from your pre-health committee or advisor. However, unlike a Committee Letter, a Letter Packet does not include an evaluative letter from your pre-health committee or advisor.
  • Individual Letter: A letter written by, and representing, a single letter author. If you have already included an Individual Letter within either a Committee Letter or a Letter Packet, do not add a separate entry for that letter.

    After getting admitted into Rosalind Franklin Medical School – chicago medical school

    Getting into a good medical college is everyone’s dream and let’s be honest, it is one of the toughest things to do and getting into an institute like RFUMS – CMS is a big achievement. CMS is among one of the top medical colleges of Bangalore, and it is known for providing the best medical knowledge to its students which helps them develop and become future doctors of the world. If you get into RFUMS – CMS, you’re definitely one of those few intelligent and hardworking people who deserved to be here and be the best doctors in the world with the help of great faculty members at CMC.

    Anyway, Congratulations! You have cleared the first and the toughest step of this journey. Now, what next? Now, comes the next step and a bit tough one comprising of a lot of challenges for you but don’t worry, if you are able to qualify for the first step, it’ll be easy for you to clear the next step too. It will require a bit of hard work and your focus to overcome these challenges. Here are the few tips mentioned below in order to help you:

      MANAGING TIME:

      First things first, MANAGING TIME! Time is the key to your success and of course, failure. If you have a hold on your time, you’re going to be successful no matter what. I’m not specifically talking about a medical college but if you talk about any university, managing time is really important in order to survive there. If you’re going to get into all this stuff of managing your time from the very start, medical college will be comparatively easy for you because you’re already a champ but the results are going to be completely opposite if you’re not going to manage your times.

      Now, the question is how to manage time? Firstly, take notes of everything from day one. Yes, it helps a lot. Take notes in the classes, how is everything going to work, the processes and procedures, etc. Once you know how things work at your campus and make a schedule for them assigning most of the time to the most important tasks and try to complete each task within the timeframe provided. This will help you be on track and make things easier for you.

      As you have taken notes and assigned time to each task, it was more of a generalized schedule. Time to be a little more specific. All the homework, assignments, test or quizzes, everything should be noted by you separately in a daily to-do-list. Every task should be noted in that with the due date and several reminders should be set in order to avoid delays. Procrastination should be strictly avoided in medical college because completing your tasks as soon as possible will help you be on track. Otherwise, you’ll be in a big mess because you won’t be able to cope up with all the daily stuff. Regularly following that to-do-list will help you complete all the tasks on time and meet your deadlines.

      SELF-STUDY:

      Is it necessary that your teacher’s teaching method will match your learning method? Well, it’s not. This is the main reason, a lot of the students who were pretty good in their studies before getting into a medical college becomes frustrated and unable to continue. They had this image in their mind that they have always been pretty good, then why aren’t they good enough over here too? Well, don’t worry and don’t stress about this. It happens with everyone but do remember that you can’t control everything. One can only try to do those things which are in his control rather than stressing over those things which were never in his control.

      Whenever you don’t understand anything in the class, ask a friend or any other classmate to help you out with it. Try to make that thing clear to you as soon as possible and not leaving it for later because you’ll end up missing something and you won’t understand another thing because you missed that thing in the first place and BOOM, you don’t know anything know. Try to get things clear when they’re fresh in your mind, it’ll help you understand really faster! Try to indulge yourself in self-study but if it doesn’t work for you, go for the group study. You can benefit a lot from group study, do try to seek help and help others too if needed. Again, allocating time to self-study and group study is the key thing.

      NAJEEB LECTURES:

      For instance, you end up in a situation where nothing is working for you or you aren’t benefiting from any of the things mentioned above or you don’t feel like putting effort into all that stuff, then you can always go to Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures for getting help. As I mentioned before, what if your teacher’s learning method doesn’t match your learning method? Well, I can guarantee you that Dr. Najeeb’s lectures will definitely match your learning method! If you don’t feel like getting help from other people and you want to rely on self-study, then these video lectures are going to help you a lot. 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.

      SELF-CARE:

      The only thing you have to do for the rest of your time in a medical college is to study? NO! Don’t overburden yourself. Despite all the rigorous studying, a very tight schedule, frequent exams, and tests, it is very important for you to take some time out for SELF-CARE. Try to indulge yourself in several extra-curricular activities happening in the college, they’ll help you to have a break from your studies. Just try to complete everything on time, so that you can enjoy everything else too to keep yourself relax!

      Reward yourself frequently whenever you achieve something, for instance, you got the highest marks in a class test. You need to reward yourself for your continuous hardships. Find a hobby which will help you freshen your mind so that you can work and learn better.

      PICK YOUR FRIENDS WISELY:

      This step is very important and should be kept in mind from day one. Be very careful and very picky about people. No, it doesn’t mean that don’t talk to anyone but chose your friends wisely. Help every person who asks for help from you and avoid getting into any conflict with anyone. If you end up getting into one, try to resolve that as soon as possible, so that you don’t get distracted from your studies because of that.

      Carefully observe the people around you and make friends very carefully because friends can help you spend the rest of your time in the college nicely or they’ll ruin it. Making more allies than enemies is a good option, help people a lot because they’ll help you out too when you’ll need it. 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.

      In 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!

    Currently, the only things saving my embryology and 1st-trimester ultrasound marks - keep the wealth of education flowing! Highly recommended!

    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!

    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.

    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.
