Disclaimer: Some of this advice I consider 'no duh' but I figured I'd say it just in case.

On shelf exams:

  1. Yes, all of the case files/blue prints/UW/OME are good resources.

  2. Emma Holiday's clerkship review videos are all excellent.

  3. If you're a DO peep and have to take COMAT shelf exams, go ahead and shell out for the COMBANK exam specific question banks. Some of those questions will show up verbatim on exam day.

  4. If you haven't already, download the mobile app for UWorld, Kaplan, and/or Combank. Some of my preceptors actively encouraged me to do questions while they were charting and would jump in to work through some with me when we had downtime in the clinic.

    On electronic devices and apps:

  5. I got an iPad mini at the start of the year and loved having it but it is not at all necessary.

  6. Some people recommended starting off each rotation by saying to your attending/upper level "I have electronic textbooks/apps, is it okay if I use them while I'm with you?" (so that you're not accused of texting or being on facebook 24/7) but that was honestly never an issue for me.

  7. Good apps to have: MDCalc (free), ASCVD Risk Estimator (free), Nodule (free), UpToDate (some hospitals will give you an institutional log-in if your school doesn't), GoodRx (free), Epocrates (free-ish), and palmEM ($10 but a decent investment if you're an EM gunner).

    On boards:

  8. The best time to sign up for your Step 2 CS/Level 2 PE is the second you get authorization from your school. Those spots go quick.

  9. DO peeps: the NBOME has affiliate deals with hotels for reduced rates. You can find the links and info here. Yes, this whole thing is stupid expensive but you might as well take advantage of what little silver lining there is.

  10. If you need disability accommodations (extra time, electronic stethoscope), start those applications NOW. There's a lot of little parts to them (I have no idea why they needed a letter from my dean but whateva) and the committee to approve those things only meets once a month (so if your application arrives after they've met for the month, you're basically going to be waiting two months to hear back from them.) Anyone who needs help with this or has questions can feel free to message me.

  11. I have no idea when the best time to take the written tests are. It will depend on your individual schedule and goals.

    On wards:

  12. You'll probably get a lot of (pocket) book recommendations. You do not need to buy every book recommended to you. The two I found useful this year were The Massachusetts General Hospital Handbook of Internal Medicine and Clinician's Guide to Laboratory Medicine.

  13. Pre-round on your patients. Some people like the scutsheets from medfools but I found them a little constrictive once I knew what I was doing. If you are supposed to write an H&P, SOAP note, discharge summary, etc and your school didn't teach you, google it. There are a ton of decent guides out there.

  14. You are there until your attending/resident explicitly tells you to go home. Your ability to ask to leave will depend on the culture +/- your gumption.

  15. NEVER LIE. If you did not see the patient, you didn't see the patient.

  16. Some people will tell you to always say "I don't know but I'll look that up and get back to you!" Honestly, my residents would roll their eyes and tell us to guess.

  17. If you don't know where something minor is (cups, ice machine, extra pillows, extra blankets) ask to be shown so that the next time you can get it yourself. Yes, you will absolutely be asked to fetch people coffee, return that empty bed to the floor, help someone to the bathroom, grab an extra blanket, etc. Most people tend to think more highly of those that do this without groaning.

  18. If you feel like you had a good time with a preceptor and they would be a useful addition to your application, consider asking them for a letter of rec at/near the end of your rotation. You don't have to apply every letter you upload for programs to see so there's really no harm in collecting more than three (but do not ask every single persona for a letter of rec - doctors talk about students, especially the ones they find sketchy or annoying).

    On evaluations:

  19. I know the majority of this subreddit moans about how subjective and unfair evaluations are but my one point of pride this year is that every single preceptor gave me an honors level eval.

  20. Yes, I am a woman. No, I am not attractive. I'm slightly below average to fair with a moderate amount of chunkiness.

  21. Do anything you can to make your resident's life easier.

  22. Be polite to every nurse, tech, nurse practitioner, receptionist, and office manager. Make small talk. Yes, I know you've heard this a million times. Yes, I did bake things and bring in boxes of donuts. Yes, you can call me a suck-up. I was still blown away when one office manager said to me "We really liked having you. None of the other students talk to us."

  23. Be enthusiastic. Ask questions. Even if you're not interested in that specialty, you can still ask what applying to residency was like (for young doctors) or how things have changed since they started (for old doctors).

  24. This is not the year to have debates. Some of my classmates got into arguments on guns, the president, or religion; sometimes the attending respected their chutzpah and sometimes they didn't. I preferred to play it safe.

  25. Keep in mind every annoying social media professionalism lecture you've ever gotten. Techs, nurses, nurse practitioners, and more all wanted to add me as a friend on Facebook. Yes, you can choose not to add them (smartest move tbh) but I gave in after getting point-blank asked "why didn't you add me?!" Facebook is for that "magical feeling of wonder and joy" when you catch a baby for the first time or the "humbling awe" you felt when you first retracted the colon. Nothing else.

  26. If you are sharing a rotation with NP student or PA student, treat them like another medical student and be cordial. Don't try to pimp them. Don't get into pissing contests. Doctors are expected to be leaders; now is your chance to actually demonstrate that.

    In general: Third year can be frustrating because it varies so wildly. Some of you will have cush rotations where you're done at 10:30 am. Some of you will enter the hospital before the sun rises and leave when it is setting. Some of you will feel like you're shadowing again. Some of you will be treated like interns (and abused because you don't have work-hour restrictions). Some will find out the thing they thought they wanted they hate and others will find out the thing they want is beyond their reach (because of family obligations, board scores, or another thing all together). Some of you will deliver 80 babies a month and some of you won't even do a Pap smear. Every hospital has a different culture; just be polite, professional, and let yourself be immersed. You'll pick it up soon enough.

    TL; DR: Life is short. Be excellent to each other.

    EDIT: Added some stuff, found out there's a size limit on comments, made a second part.

u/armoured_wankball · 31 pointsr/ShitAmericansSay

In a way, he's not wrong. It is a culture thing but it's a culture that needs changing. The emphasis is on fixing health issues, not preventing them in the first place. There's an attitude that there is a device/procedure/medicine that can take care of anything, which leads to stupidly large sums of money being spent chasing lost causes and ridiculous medicines to the masses.

As for administration, of course the costs are out of control. Each medical facility has to bill multiple (in the dozes if not 100+ in some cases) insurance companies. Every procedure has to be "coded." The current ICD 10 coding book runs to 1250 pages.

Then there are the doctors. Some are people who are in it because they want to help and it's a calling, not a job. In my experience though, most are there purely for the money and prestige. Six-figure salaries is putting it mildly. Most I've known have been making closer to 7 and running all kinds of businesses and ventures on the side. They seem to like to dabble in property and politics mainly.

Of course, there's a fix for all this. Expand Medicare to all. That would take care of a lot of the admin overhead. Make medical school free or highly subsidized and encourage people who want to be in medicine for the right reasons.

This book is unequivocally the greatest book I have ever read.

I get a hard on just thinking about it. Probably better than pathoma honestly, it's just a super limited scope of information so it's only good for cardio

u/ImClearlyAmazing · 9 pointsr/medicalschool

Pocket Medicine is a good one to have, just buy it already you won't regret it!

u/xZeroRage · 6 pointsr/learnart

> I was thinking on drawing 50 arms, 50 legs and so on,

This will accomplish absolutely nothing if you aren't sure what you're doing in the first place. So, let's go over a few things to help you with this instead.

Let me tell you a few things that I picked up as soon as I saw your drawings:

  • You aren't actually paying much attention to the subject you're drawing; especially if you have a reference, you're going to have to measure up and make sure what you have looks right. There appears to be lots and lots of guessing here, which is a habit you'll have to break if you aren't sure what to guess.
  • You don't have a good grasp on perspective yet; this can be seen in examples 1 and 4 where you have the figures in such unnatural looking positions.
  • You have lines in example 1 which seem to be you measuring her height using the head as a reference, which is interesting to me, as you appear to have grown impatient and drawn what you though would make her look better. I think some of the frustration here lies in the fact that her head is too tall, which made the rest of her body not line up the way you wanted it to.
  • Your muscles look masculine, even with your women, and they also aren't what natural muscles look like.
  • Your clothing textures are actually decent (some more practice and I think you'll have these down, definitely!), and aren't really much of a weak point for you.

    Let's take this apart step by step and see where some progress can be made. First, the face:

  • You know what a face looks like, though you're having some difficultly constructing one. To learn how to actually make a face, one way to do it is by drawing a face head on so you get an idea of how the proportions work. It's also much easier to get a straight on look at a face and make less mistakes along the way, as you'll have the proportions directly in front of you. When it comes to drawing faces at an angle, however, this'll be more difficult, as you won't have the same guidelines to help you. Once you draw lots of faces head on, with practice on value/shading, etc. then it should be easier to construct one in your head and have an idea on what to work on for various other angles you're trying to accomplish. So here's a nice video that can go about showing you how to draw a face from different angles and here's another one that provides commentary along the way, and is a bit more straightforward as well.
  • Your faces, similar to your muscles, all look very masculine, which tells me you don't know what women look like. I'm more so just pointing this out as something you should work on, so here's an article that goes over differences in drawing faces between men/women it'll take some getting used to at first, but it's something to study and fix before you try getting too involved with faces (otherwise you'll get good at making mistakes, which you don't want)

    Next, the body:

  • Okay, you and I both understand that proportions/anatomy aren't a strong point for you. Not to worry, you can fix this! Proko is a great source on YouTube you'll see mentioned a lot here if you're having trouble with anatomy, since he goes over things in an easy to understand fashion. There's also Draw with Jazza whose channel I love, since he goes over material quite well. What may also help here is enrolling in a class in a university or community center that'll allow you to a draw a live model, where you can get feedback from a teacher and other students as well. There's also some books on anatomy, such as Atlas of Human Anatomy (keep in mind this one is not really a tutorial, just something to help give notes on anatomy), and this book, which is a bit more beginner friendly and has more instruction in it.
  • Instead of trying to simply draw 50 arms and 50 legs, it helps to have some guidance on what exactly you're drawing and how to draw it. This is a clear tutorial that can help with that , and in case you also need a bit of reminding of what limbs are supposed to look like, this here can help you with body proportions so you can make sure your limbs match up, and gives extra tips on how they can do that. One thing I will note as well, is that it's not just your limbs that need work, so don't feel like you should only be focused on them when you work on the body, as you need to make sure the entire human form is comprehensible and works together. What's the point of having nicely drawn limbs if you have a shitty torso, for example. I'll also remind you that drawing limbs is a pain in the fucking ass and that it's not something that you'll pick up quickly (this is especially true of digits, hands/feet were and still are a pain for me to draw!). Speaking of hands, you seem timid when it comes to these subjects, and you're going to want to get over that, since if you don't know much about hands/feet, then many of your gestures won't look as appealing (plus, it's only going to hurt you since you'll get frustrated time and time again trying to get them right). Luckily, Draw with Jazza has a tutorial on those, and you can also purchase a hand mannequin if you'd like some extra help. Another great resource is looking at your own hands/feet, since they're always available and can get the job done in some natural lighting.

    Lastly, your (lack of) shading:

  • Since there's no shading to speak of in these pieces, you're doing yourself a huge disservice as you aren't actually drawing the human form, but rather an outline of it (which in itself, isn't giving any details to speak of, which is adding to your lack of success with drawing people). This tells me you either a. aren't too familiar with how to create form, or b. simply don't understand yet understand the importance of shading when learning how to draw. This is all fine and dandy, as this link here will tell you all about form and how to shade properly. Some exercises you can practice for this are drawing objects in real life in shading them, and getting used to not erasing while you do so (when you don't erase, it prompts you to make less and less mistakes further along the road).

    And here's a last:

  • Go slow. Drawing is a not a race, you don't have to finish everything within a set time limit. If it's taking you a long time to learn something, don't sweat it. There's no such thing as someone who is good at drawing everything when they first start out. Everyone sucks in the beginning, so it's better to take your time and focus on what mistakes you make so you can take note of how to improve later. And since you want to work with people, which is difficult because a. not only is the human form in itself hard to draw, but you have to make a human body be recognizable since unlike drawing animals, which don't have any particular likenesses that are completely relevant (for example, you can draw a golden retriever, and I can look at it, and see it's a golden retriever because animals don't have that look to them that really separates them), meanwhile humans have facial and body features that are distinguishable to us since we recognize our own species, and b. there can be a lot going on in a human drawing, such as us holding something, wearing certain things, having certain hairstyles, etc. which by themselves can be difficult to master. So taking your time and realizing that it won't be perfect right away will only help you in the long run.
u/pfpants · 5 pointsr/medicalschool

You're talking about inpatient medicine, right?

Get yourself one of these pocket medicine books if you haven't already.

Don't just read anything for 30-45 minutes a day. Read about your patients. You're going to need to talk about their pathology, possible diagnoses, and treatment options in the coming days.

On presenting your patients - practice, practice, practice. Print out a template of things you want to go over in your presentation so you have something to follow. (I always tended to get off track or out of order if I didn't follow a set routine.)

u/BrobaFett · 5 pointsr/Residency

Trust the process. You'll learn what you need to learn.

BRS is nice and dense, but somewhat outdated.

Your best resource, by far is going to be Pediatrics in Review (and for NICU, NeoReview). They provide excellent review articles for any topic you might wish to learn about. Read these articles often.

Nelsons is the reference "bible" if you will, but I don't know if I'd drop the dough on paying for a full Nelson's. Nelson's Essentials on the other hand, is quite digestible.

You mentioned Pocket Medicine, and there is a Pocket Pediatrics, but I've never used it. Harriet Lane is definitively the standard reference but a bit thick to stick in a white coat pocket (every halfway decent program has like 4-5 of these strewn about the resident work-room).

The good news is, you can sort of pick and choose what reference texts you want. For board prep you'll get the usual "laughing your way", PREP, and medstudy, etc. I also think it's not a bad idea to pick up a text correlating to your field of interest.

For instance, I like critical care. So I picked up Roger's Handbook of Pediatric Intensive Care (the much more portable version of the larger text).

Hope that helps!!

u/43W1n · 4 pointsr/medicine

Wikipedia is a good place to start for inarguable content like basic physiology, pathology, etc. Provincial treatment standards are often in the form of various (often conflicting) medical society guidelines. For Internal Medicine specifically (which is of course most of medicine in the end), Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine (digital version available) is the "next level" and "bible" of internal medical education and for treatment principles. A concise, well-sourced reference like the Washington Manual or (IMHO better) The Sabatine Mass Gen handbook are great. Uptodate is great but expensive.

I'm an Internal Med hospitalist (U.S.) and also in the field of General Preventive Medicine and Public Health.

His book: Respiratory Physiology is a great one.

u/truthdoctor · 3 pointsr/medicine

What I started with: Stethoscope, sphygmomanometer or a sphygmomanometer for the lazy, pulse oximeter, reflex hammer, tuning fork, a pen light, notebook, Maxwell, pocket medicine, clipboard, 48 pens (of which I somehow only have 2 left), and finally a pack of decoy pens to hand out to people that need to "borrow" a pen but never give back.

Seriously where do all of my pens go??? It turns out half them went into my gf's bag x(.

What I was given or picked up along the way: scalpel, needle drivers, tweezers, scissors, various types of vicryl, bandages, gauze, alcohol wipes, surgical lube (that I took from the hospital when no one was looking ;) ), and a pocket CPR mask. I took a bunch of normal saline and IV kits as well but they don't fit in the bag.

u/mjmed · 3 pointsr/medicalschool

That's really probably a lot to do/ask, especially before next week. Just as or more important, is to have the right resources to get them quickly. There are a few great medical calculator apps, but just about as fast is getting the "Purple Book" (formerly the green, then red, then blue book) for internal medicine and [Tarascon's Internal Medicine and Critical Care pocket books](Tarascon Internal Medicine & Critical Care Pocketbook). Between those two, I've only needed to look up extra calculators/equations for fairly obscure things.

The Purple book runs $40-60 usually, but I got my Tarascon for like $20-30 a couple years ago. For some reason it's more expensive than rent/a week of medical school/etc at about $485. No idea why.

*edit formatting

u/goljanismydad · 3 pointsr/medicalschool

The uwise modules are designed to go hand in hand with the Beckmann Ob/Gyn textbook. The textbook is excellent and a pretty easy read. I only read the text + UWise questions + UW and did excellent on the shelf.

I'll echo what's already been said, don't waste money on an expensive suture kit. [These] ( are always on backorder but keep checking and eventually they get more... they are free.

The only thing I can't imagine doing without during my clinical (and something your program won't require) was [Pocket Medicine] ( I am convinced this book alone can get you through 90% of your rotations... It was the only pocket reference I carried in my white coat for every rotation. It's the only pocket reference I STILL carry from school. I think a new version is coming sometime this month so you could wait for that!

u/slightsofHand · 3 pointsr/medicalschool

Respiratory Physiology by John B West

Its highly recommended by most. I haven't myself read through it but I do intend to. Its a small book and heard its an easy read.

u/drdking · 2 pointsr/medicalschool

Netter's Atlas if you just want a big book with lots of great drawings of everything.

The text book has all the background information and clinical correlations, but often not as many, or smaller images. Netter's Clinical Anatomy is good if you want something a bit slimmer and simpler that still has all the basic anatomy. If you want something more beefy I highly recommend Moore's Clinical Oriented Anatomy. It's a big book, but it has everything in it you could want.

No problem, I'm glad it was helpful!

This is the book we used in school. I would say it is pretty advanced as far as EMS goes, but if you're think you're up for it, this could be an excellent read for a paramedic looking to really focus on cardiac pathophysiology. Make sure you've got the basics down first, then try it out.

u/Teristella · 2 pointsr/medlabprofessionals

I used the BOC Study Guide (actually I just pulled it out of my trunk and was going to take it to work), 5th edition was the newest then. I also used MediaLab Exam Simulator, we had used it during my program and my subscription was still good (I use it for my CEUs now). I also picked up some review cards ( which were helpful, I would take a few with me wherever I went.

There’s a (reportedly good) book about this.

Not an app, but it's a great book. Not too expensive, and it covers lead II interpretation very well.

u/bashfulfax · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

This book has clearly, by far, the highest ratio of relevant medical fact to pages that has ever been constructed. The only problem is: you practically have to know every word.

Also, it principally deals with the adult lung, and the principles that allow understanding of the diseases of middle to late age.

Also it's dense. Chapter 7, innocently titled 'the mechanics of breathing', covers a staggering amount of material.

Best of luck.

Edit: Have to add, West is in my EDC. It is the bees knees.

u/Falernum · 2 pointsr/gifs

I would say that if you're really interested I'd start with this or this. Here is one free article on just that specific topic.

But as an anesthesiologist I mostly see it in acute airway obstruction, such as a patient biting down on an endotracheal tube during extubation, a patient with an obstructive mass, etc. It certainly can happen during diving, especially with a kinked hose or breathing far past what your regulator can deliver or something - but I'm really not as familiar with that setting. It's easy to imagine it getting confused with regular drowning or near-drowning.

u/wellactuallyhmm · 1 pointr/medicine

I've always understood a stress test to be considered positive if chest discomfort is reproduced or EKG abnormalities consistent with ischemic heart disease develop. Reproducible stable angina is enough to consider the test positive even in the absence of EKG changes.

Tests are considered markedly positive if:

  1. ischemic EKG changes develop within 3 minutes of initiation of exercise or persist 5 minutes after cessation.
  2. Magnitude of ST segment depression > 2 mm.
  3. Systolic BP drops during exercise.
  4. High-grade ventricular arrhythmias occur.
  5. Patient cannot exercise for at least 2 minutes because of cardiopulmonary limitations (I take that to mean extreme angina, SOB).

    Pharmacologic and nuclear testing are necessary in patients with absolute contraindications to exercise stress testing, such as severe arthritis, lower limb amputation etc.

    All this info is from: Pathophysiology of Heart Disease, 5th edition (Lilly).

    EDIT: Reading your statement again you are correct in that you cannot make a diagnosis, but you should consider the stress test positive when making your diagnosis.
u/Crutchstep · 1 pointr/StudentNurse


To be honest, I didn't buy this. It was given to me by my roommate, but it has a lot of practice strips with answers in the back if you feel that would help you out. I am a hands on learner, and for some reason it just clicks so much better with me when I am sitting in front of the tele monitor watching the rhythm while looking in my book. It's a big book, and it's nice when I have time to sit with it.. But I really feel like a laminated card you can attach to your badge or tape to your clipboard that has parameters like: "PR interval > .20 = 1st* block ->Asymptomatic" would be MUCH more useful for when you're on the floor.


Pumped for you, I'll be there soon.

I won't be taking the exam until June of next year, so I'm interested in seeing the resources that others mentioned, too.

I played the free quiz game on LabCE's website. You get questions from all the disciplines until you miss five questions. There are no limits on how often or long you play.

These cards are awesome and they fit in lab coat pockets so you can review them while you are waiting on timers, centrifuges, etc.
