Sample text

One student we worked with had a tendency to always study to far too great a depth. She was working with a group of others close to finals and they agreed to go away and study liver disease over the next 2 days and then come back and test each other. This student became lost in the molecular pathology of primary biliary cirrhosis, finding deeper and deeper books to go into, and never got to read about gallstones. It would be possible to study for a PhD on the molecular pathology of this rare condition, and still not understand it completely.

Our recommendation is that for each skill you have three sheets of A4. The first sheet contains one side on the ‘right way’ (your own ‘right way’) of performing a skill (perhaps the steps for a basic knee examination) that you decide on by comparing two or three different expert sources. The second page should contain about one side of the key basic sciences that you need to support the performance of the skill (perhaps the underlying anatomy of the knee joint). The final page, which you might write only after you have started to master the skill, contains the clinical reasoning – perhaps a heading for each major condition with the key features listed, or perhaps a table of key features with their corresponding conditions.

Thinking about yourself, have you ever sat and stared at a page, read the same paragraph over and over before you realised that you hadn’t taken in a word of it? We have seen plenty of students who sit and read books, look at the words, often spending many hours doing so, but then still don’t seem to do well in the exams. Effective learning is an active process requiring effort and energy. The volume of learning required in medicine is so much that even those with outstanding memories will not be able to just soak it all up, and this will be a shock for many.
