The Complete Guide on How To Study Microbiology in Med School

Greetings! After the hit that was The Complete Guide to Pharmacology and it's prequel The Complete Guide to Pathology, your favorite med student in the whole world is back again with a new post. It's the same familiar format but a brand new subject.

Yes. You read the title. It's going to be Microbiology today. It's one of those subjects that feels like a bizarre mix of pharmacology and pathology if you asked me. There is logic and structure to microbiology, but there is also memorization, although not at the same intensity as pharmacology. Nevertheless, it's enough to make things a little daunting to the average med student.

The Complete Guide on How To Study Pharmacology in Med School

We're back again with another installment to the "how to study in med school" series. In case you haven't read the previous posts, you can go read up on how to study pathology in med school, ten tips for studying anatomy and how to ace your viva. Again, I would like to point out that I'm not a perfect student and that these methods are not applicable to every student.

I write these posts so that you can have a bit of an exposure about the different styles and methods of studying, because everyone has their own style that helps them get things done with more efficiency. If you are currently studying and not getting the kind of output you are expecting, you need to stop and reconfigure your study style. I am a strong believer in studying efficiently instead of forcing my way through content and eventually burning myself out.

This is an especially important principle in med school as well. Med school is a marathon, not a race. You need to plan out your miles and make sure you don't get lost or tired or injured in the middle of it. Once you understand this, a lot of things get easier. You should stop stressing over trying to get a seemingly un-achievable goal of maintaining an A+ and stay focused on the end goal.

Anyway! Enough rambling. Let's move on to the actual discussion.

The Complete Guide on How to Study Pathology in Med School

Today I bring to you the first post in a series of (hopefully) four total posts. I've been planning this series out for quite a while but haven't been able to execute it, but hey, let's get started! Since I've started fourth year and passed third year (yes, in that order exactly), people have been asking me about how to study in third year.

I've been meaning to write these sorts of study related posts, but so far I've only managed to crank out a post about how to study anatomy and how to ace your viva. Time to change all of that now! Anyway,  let's get started. We're going to break this post down into a few sections and try to cover everything you need to know. Of course, if I forget something or if there's a query that you have, feel free to comment below.

Travelogue: Muzaffarabad and Pir Chanasi

Hello! Earlier this week, I went on a trip to Muzaffarabad and Pir Chanasi with my father and his team from the hospital he works at. It was a bit of an educational trip to one of the major hospitals of Muzaffarabad to teach the staff there about ESI, followed by the fun part of the trip- all of which I will be outlining below. I had a lot of fun on the trip and took lots of pictures, so look forward to the photographic spam!

yay for colors of autumn!

How Am I Studying: The End of Third Year

I remember when, not too long ago, I used to be writing all sorts of study posts during first and second year. Something happened around the end of second year (even now, I'm not quite sure what), but I just haven't been able to get back to the groove of writing about studying. I've always wanted to be one of those study focused blogs, but that seems to be getting harder and harder by the day.

Sometimes, the best way to get things done or to get things to change, especially if you're unhappy, is to take the first step and get started. It doesn't matter if the first step is really small, you just need to start and get the momentum building. You'll get where you want to be before you know it. However, something important to keep in mind before taking the journey is to consider how much you are willing to sacrifice with it.

There's no point in committing to a cause and getting started when you are just doing it for fun or if you don't know if you really want to do it in the first place. I feel like that's a problem I face a lot. There are multiple things that I want to do, but I am never sure if I will be able to put in the kind of effort that is required to get the ball moving. I wish I had the time to sit down and think about all these things and plan them out, but let's be real, I'm never going to find the time until I make the time, and if I can't make the time, then maybe I shouldn't be doing it in the first place.

It's a bit of a defeatist ideology, I realize, which is why I'm trying really hard to start working on things I think I am passionate about. The truth is, I have a multitude of ideas. I just need to get started.
