The Lost In Premed Podcast

Education Podcasts >

This is The Lost in PreMed Podcast where we talk about everything from course work and GPA to the MCAT, volunteering, shadowing and anything else you may encounter on your premed journey. I’ll talk about some of the experiences that I have had as a nontraditional student and I’ll also share some of the lessons that I have learned over the past 10 years, while working in exciting emergency medicine. From time to time I like to bring in other premed undergrads, medical students, residents and even attendings and let them share their stories and insights that they have learned about the world of medicine. I take all this, bundle it up and put it all in a nice little podcast, all in hopes of softening the masochism that is the journey to medical school.

In my 2nd (or 3rd) semester of med school I was at a workshop that talked about time management and study skills. Being in school for as long as I have, I've heard most of general principles before, but there was one thing that afternoon that caught my attention. After going back to my study spot, I noticed that one of the biggest study pit-falls that I had fallen into because I didn't really think it was a big deal. Turns out I was wrong.

One of the odd things that has come from this is the exposure of osteopathic doctors to the public consciousness. When their doctor...
