Strategies to Avoid When Preparing for Medical Boards
With so much riding on your medical boards, studying the same way you always have can seem like a good idea. Why rock the boat? But if you’re not getting the results you need, it may be time to reassess. How you’re approaching your medical boards prep can make a huge difference.
In this episode, Dr. Jim Culhane, Assistant Dean for Student Academic Success Programs and Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Notre Dame of Maryland University School of Pharmacy, flips the script and interviews STATMed host Ryan Orwig. In this multipart miniseries, they dig into strategies students can use to prepare for medical boards. Here, they discuss strategies to avoid if you’re looking to get the most out of your study sessions.
“Being strategic with your exam preparation and following a process that utilizes good productivity skills, time management skills, study skills and the approaches that are going to get you the best results versus the mentality that you’re just going to plow through the material. You’re putting in long days, you’re doing a lot of hard work, but you’re getting very little return on your investment.” – Dr. Culhane
