The New Medical Student: Tips and Tricks from First-Years

Share

A new group of co-hosts, all M1s, discuss what it’s been like to start medical school (in a pandemic).

TL;DR

  • We discuss what our new co-hosts, all M1s, learned about themselves and med school this year.
  • Did they prepare or study before they started school in the fall?
  • And very important: what flatulence schedule would they prefer?

Steph Rodriguez, Zain Mehdi, Martin Goree, and Carl Skoog are approaching the end of that stressful first year of medical school.  Dave seized the opportunity to talk about the things many incoming students might want to know about starting medical school in the coming year.  We talk about whether to prepare before school starts, what sacrifices they feel they made to study medicine, what they’ve struggle with and what was easier than expected, and whether in the midst of a lot more online learning than they were used to, did they find their people among their classmates.   

Dave likes getting to know people, so he also posed some Would You Rather questions in the hopes of revealing things about his new co-hosts.
