Two Months In
If I've learned anything so far, it's that medical school is incredibly humbling. Not that I was arrogant before, but the past two months has definitely shown me (and probably everyone else), that what you think you know doesn't even skim the top of what you need to know. There's definitely more "growing-up" to do.
There are 4 lectures per day from 1-4pm, Monday through Friday, with mornings reserved for labs and review of the previous days' lectures. The key to Term 1 is a solid study method and time management. Coming out from college, we've all been doing things a certain way. That way probably won't get you too far here, but it really helps to plan every minute of every day, and make sure everything on your to-do list is taken care of and completed by the end of the day. Easier said than done, I know.
So far I've survived midterms, and there's around 50 more days until the end of finals! Oh, and Easter "break" is next week- we get Friday off through Monday. It should be a good break, being that we don't have spring break :-/
