  • Medical school is no joke.

  • In fact, becoming a doctor requires completion of one of the world's most rigorous and

  • testing paths of any profession.

  • A substantial percentage of medical students burn out, give up, or are plain miserable.

  • Other students, like me, are the weirdos that actually enjoy the process.

  • Here's how I did it and how you too can not only survive, but thrive in medical

  • school.

  • Dr. Jubbal, MedSchoolInsiders.com.

  • Don't believe what others say.

  • Medical school doesn't have to be a torturous and depressing time in your life.

  • I actually enjoyed medical school more than I enjoyed college.

  • By closely following every tip here, I'm confident you can grow to love the process

  • as well.

  • You'll see that each habit builds off of one another.

  • By the end of the video, you'll know exactly what I mean.

  • The foundational principle you must understand

  • is that medical school is a different beast entirely.

  • While you may have been a stellar student in college, the habits and strategies that

  • worked then just won't work in medical school.

  • Too often, students are inseparable from their old ways, and they expect these old systems

  • to continue working in medical school, despite evidence to the contrary.

  • Brute forcing your way by trying harder won't cut it and it won't be sustainable.

  • This is the point where you say “I already know how to study and I already know how to manage

  • my time.”

  • If you truly want to excel and surpass your current performance, you'll need to let

  • go of this tendency and instead embrace a new mindset.

  • You'll need to experiment, track, and ultimately challenge your current assumptions and ways

  • of living.

  • This happened to me as well.

  • After a wildly successful college pre-med career, I thought I had everything figured

  • out.

  • But medical school was a rude awakening that my systems were far from perfect.

  • Number two, Hone Study Strategies. The information you have to learn in medical

  • school isn't any more conceptually challenging than what you learned in college.

  • In fact, your college major may be significantly more difficult in certain respects, particularly

  • if you did something like neuroscience or bioengineering.

  • That being said, while medical school isn't super conceptually challenging, the rate

  • of learning new information is monstrous and continues to grow each year as the scientific

  • literature expands.

  • As they say, learning in medical school is like drinking from a fire hydrant.

  • For this reason, active learning and efficient study methods are mandatory.

  • To thrive and enjoy medical school, study strategy optimization is not something you

  • can overlook.

  • No more passive reading of notes or Power Point slides.

  • Active learning, by definition, is more uncomfortable than passive learning, but it

  • pays dividends.

  • Becoming more efficient gets you better grades, which is already reason enough to invest the

  • time and effort.

  • But realize these benefits compound, as you'll have more time for sleep, more

  • time for fun, and more time to take care of yourself.

  • As a result, you'll be in a better mind space, be more effective when you study, and

  • enter a positive feedback cycle.

  • It's possibly the most fundamental and crucial skill you should prioritize.

  • I've gone over the highest yield strategies in other videos, including what study strategies

  • I wish I knew back in college.

  • Number three, Organize Better Than Marie Kondo. Going hand in hand with optimal study strategies,

  • efficiency is paramount, but efficiency doesn't come from brute force.

  • Rather, organized and streamlined systems will facilitate the process.

  • Organization strategies can be applied to multiple facets of your life.

  • For example, a clean study space is more than just something

  • pretty to look at.

  • Neatly organized and purposefully implemented work spaces that are maintained clutter-free

  • facilitate efficient work.

  • While it may seem tedious or superfluous, making your bed every morning and clearing

  • papers off your desk will help you focus and tend to your work with greater purpose.

  • I made a video of how I've designed my own work space.

  • Link in the description below.

  • In your daily schedule, lay out how you will

  • spend your time.

  • When is class, when will you eat, when will you study, and when will you exercise?

  • I personally opted for Google Calendar, as it is free, syncs seamlessly across my devices, and integrates

  • nicely with Gmail.

  • The exact calendar tool you use, whether in the cloud or on paper, is actually less important.

  • The key is being consistent with whatever you choose.

  • I go over how to schedule effectively in another video.

  • Link in the description below.

  • My favorite task manager is Things3.

  • I use it across my iPad, iPhone, and MacBook, but there are other great alternatives like

  • Todoist that work on PC and Android as well.

  • There are additional areas requiring purposeful organization and systems, including email,

  • habit tracking, groceries, and more, but that's a topic for another video.

  • Number four, Leave the Ego Behind. While medicine draws many incredible people

  • to the profession, it also often attracts a large ego.

  • But allowing your ego to call the shots won't help you in medical school.

  • It's up to you whether you want to learn this the easy way or the hard way.

  • If you're used to being at the top of your class, it won't always be that way in medical

  • school.

  • Despite a top MCAT score, a near perfect GPA, and being awarded the single highest merit

  • scholarship at my medical school, I did not feel particularly smart in my class.

  • In fact, I was humbled by my colleagues.

  • Everyone has different strengths, and while I may crush cardiology, my friend would crush

  • renal, and a different friend would crush OSCE's.

  • Once you get to your clinical rotations, you may not be treated very kindly.

  • Unfortunately, the culture of medicine is extremely hierarchal, with some specialties

  • being worse offenders than others.

  • For example, if you go into a surgical specialty, for example, it won't be uncommon for you to be berated,

  • humiliated, or yelled at.

  • Now there is a fine line between tough love and abuse, and you should absolutely report

  • any transgressions.

  • At the same time, if every stern look gets under your skin, you're not going to have

  • a good time.

  • The key is to remember that patient care is the number one priority, and if someone comes

  • across as abrasive, it's rarely ever personal.

  • The ego sneaks up in another way - unwillingness

  • to ask for help.

  • Remember, asking for help is not a sign of weakness.

  • Rather, it is an indicator of strength.

  • Medicine is a profession centered around serving othersyour patients.

  • Doctors are in many ways idolized and put on a pedestal, but we are humans too.

  • And as people, we need support, just like anyone else.

  • You're likely to face at least one challenging time during your medical school training,

  • and having a network of friends and loved ones you can rely on is key.

  • As I've spoken about recently with the #SaveOurDoctors and burnout video, strong social

  • connections is one of the most powerful ways to ward off burnout.

  • Don't be afraid to reach out to others for help.

  • It's not all about playing defense either.

  • When things get tough, sure, fall back on your social supports.

  • But creating that social support system was arguably one of the best parts of medical

  • school.

  • I grew close to many of my amazing classmates.

  • Medical school often attracts highly talented, compassionate, and impressive individuals

  • who are just plain awesome.

  • There's no practical benefit in trying to go at it alone.

  • Again, this profession is based on the principle of connecting and helping others.

  • Share your notes, look out for each other, and help classmates who are struggling.

  • You can even practice the Feynman technique while you're at it.

  • Number six, Prioritize Healthy Habits. If you're a type A highly driven individual,

  • you likely push yourself to the limit at the cost of taking care of yourself.

  • I get it, I've been there.

  • I mean, who cares about sleep?

  • You've got to crank on this presentation and then pound out your Anki cards.

  • But what I've learned the hard way is that, paradoxically, making time to take care of

  • yourself actually results in improved productivity and effectiveness.

  • By prioritizing socializing on the weekends, rather than just playing catch up on work,

  • I felt more refreshed during the week.

  • I was able to focus more intently for longer periods of time, and ultimately increase my

  • output.

  • It's much easier to endure a 19 hour shift on your plastic surgery away rotation (and

  • not even need caffeine) when you're taking care of yourself.

  • I'm not saying you shouldn't study on the weekends, but it's crucial to practice

  • some self care at a regular interval.

  • When I was in medical school, I hit the gym and lifted 3-4 times per week, I prioritized

  • healthy plant-based whole food diet, I meditated a couple times per week, and set aside time

  • time each week to hang out with my significant other or my best friends.

  • Remember, all these habits all build off of one another.

  • If you practice more efficient study strategies, then you'll have more time to relax and

  • self-care.

  • If you practice self-care, you feel more refreshed and become more efficient when you study.

  • You want to get into this positive feedback loop.

  • Slipping into the opposite, a negative feedback loop, is how medical school becomes miserable.

  • My goal with Med School Insiders is to create a generation of happier, healthier, and more

  • effective future physicians.

  • I've made mistakes as a pre-med, as a medical student, and as a plastic surgery resident,

  • and I want you all to learn from my mistakes and surpass my own results.

  • If you want to see how I practice these principles in my own daily life, be sure to follow me

  • on Instagram @kevinjubbalmd and the official Med School Insiders instagram @medschoolinsiders.

  • I also send out a weekly email newsletter outlining lessons learned, helpful tips, tools,

  • and study music to help you crush the week.

  • Visit medschoolinsiders.com/newsletter to sign up.

  • Thank you all so much for watching.

  • I love hearing from you guys, so leave a comment down below or shoot me a DM on Instagram.

  • Much love to you all, and I will see you guys in that next one.

Medical school is no joke.
