FINDING IT DIFFICULT TO GET RESIDENCY?

Wed Sep 28, 2016 6:40 am

by LuisDiaz (Posted Wed Sep 28, 2016 6:40 am)
Clinical research is an interesting field. But if a person wants to become a nurse they need to stay motivated and keep on working hard. Everything is possible. The most important thing is being healthy. When you are healthy and young you can achieve anything! Even get residency! You just have to write a good personal statement, study hard and work hard too!

Course regression for MCAT black mark on transcript?

Sun Sep 25, 2016 2:13 pm

by Prometheus123 (Posted Sun Sep 25, 2016 2:13 pm)
I'm considering taking Spanish 101-103 this quarter. This would be course regression because I've taken upper level Spanish courses recently, up to the Spanish 303. My adviser says that's generally not a good idea, but do you think it's likely to actually make a difference in terms of whether I get into medicals schools or not?

Why do I want to do this? It's part of my MCAT prep strategy.
1. Taking courses in general will help support me financially so I can work less and study more.
2. It will also enable me delay paying back my student loans for 6 months after I graduate.
3. Taking low-level intro Spanish courses specifically will give me more time to study for the MCAT because I won't have to study outside of class for the classes, I'll just have to show up and do the homework. I could take upper-level courses, but I'm worried that that would be too much of a distraction from the MCAT.

For context, I did my first 2 years of college several years ago and got a GPA of 2.32. I dropped out in 2011, lived in India and Dubai for 2 years and tried a few careers. I became convinced I had to pursue medicine and transferred to a different college in 2015 to do my pre-reqs and finish my undergraduate degree.

By the time I apply in summer 2017, I'll have a cumulative GPA of 3.2. My GPA will be on the low end of applicants, but I'll have a strong trend of improvement in my favor.

So do you think this course regression is a reasonably small risk to take, or given my rocky history is it important that I find another way?

“What is the role of social media in nursing education?”
Nursing is a promising career choice for young people looking for a secure profession. However, it differs somewhat from other jobs due to the sensitive nature of patient information. All transactions between nurse and patient should be considered strictly confidential. Privacy is particularly apropos regarding social media, by which users readily share information to broad audiences. In nursing education, learning institutions need to include suitable guidelines in their training of student nurses. Such guidelines will include best practices and social media crisis training. One approach could be role play. In this technique, nurses are asked to imagine they are a patient whose private information they shared. The instructor can ask, "How would you feel if you were the patient, and you saw your information on Facebook or Twitter?" In this way, the student can empathize with the patient and better appreciate the impact they could have.

On the other hand, the educational experience for nursing students may be enhanced by social media. Social media platforms offer promising approaches for developing innovative ways for students to learn about the nursing profession and specialty disciplines, such as trauma, pediatrics, and geriatrics. For example, social sites may allow students to share with each other learning experiences, ideas, and advice. Students could discuss coursework and quiz each other to help them master challenging material. Students could also show their understanding to build small educational modules on social media websites to share information about illnesses, vaccines and other topics to reassure and educate patients.

Given this dual nature of social media, it is clear that educational institutions should include coursework that helps student nurses understand how best to use social media in advancing their careers.

I created a youtube channel (USMLE Tweetz) with short lectures that are intended for USMLE Step 2CK and Step 3. Instead of completely covering a topic, the aim of these lectures is to clarify issues where students tend to double guess themselves.

Here is a link to the youtube channel.... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC95TzSH1B_2EjaZMgDBNmvA

Here are some images from the video lectures...

Let’s talk about the innocent and naughty kids who generally like to eat chocolates, ice creams, candies, pastries, cakes and also prefer cold drinks most of the time. In fact, sometimes elder people also become children when it comes turn of eating mouthwatering dish. Most of the people are addicted to smoking, drugs, tobacco and all such things which give an open invitation to the dangerous diseases. In order to make the people fit and healthy, we need to aware most of the people about the harmful effects of all these unhealthy things so that they can further spread this important advice.





Are Foreign medical schools now a really bad idea?

by CaribMD (Posted Fri Sep 16, 2016 6:30 pm)
In 2016 are Foreign medical schools now a really bad idea? With the Match rates very low for FMGs and will continue to decline, should those hoping to go to medical school either continue to try in the USA or forget medicine?

What do you think now?

I want to mention that we should not be afraid to be or to feel weak. We are not perfect and nobody is not good at writing or any other subject as bookworms are. So that is why I have also decided to order and pay for my essay. No shame, but there was no other way out. I went to "Marvelous Essay" and I was not wrong about my choice.

Interesting Science Q&A

Wed Sep 14, 2016 2:21 am

by ChloeMica (Posted Wed Sep 14, 2016 2:21 am)
The research from academic community in science Q&A is endless, the research is beyond the information science, communication, sociology, computer science, as well as some other fields. Clearly, medical science has kept gaining ground on the most dreaded conditions, which means further research advances like cell adhesion peptides could be significant for social progress to a large degree. Thus, related science Q&A might attract increasing concerns in public.

1. When will people lose the ability to learn new words?
The latest research shows that people around the age of 60 began to lose the ability to learn new words. However, on the other hand, the stage is relatively late while compared with some other skills, such as the stage that begins to lose the ability to remember looks of strangers (mainly 20 years old) and interpret other emotions (40 years old).

2. What’s the function of zebra’s stripes?
In terms of those black and white stripes on a zebra, there are many assumptions, such as repelling mosquitoes, creating visual illusion for predators, facilitating mutual recognition, as well as regulating body temperature among similar partners. Biologist Brenda from the University of California has found that the higher the temperature is, the denser the zebra’s stripes could be. Since the heat absorption of black is higher than that of white, the difference can be produced to play the role of conditioned air flows around the skin.

In addition, more stripes can help to drive blood-sucking insects because they prefer hot and black hair animals, such as buffalo. In fact, zebra is born black, while those white stripes are always generated because of suppressed pigmentation results. Each zebra’s stripes are different from others’, which could be formed in the embryonic stage.

3. Will people suffer from hair loss because of tension?
Physical or psychological stress can cause hair loss (as much as three-quarters), which belongs to telogen effluvium. In general, this is a temporary disorder. Thus, when the anxiety disappears, the hair will back to normal, but some people will suffer from cyclical symptoms, with rotigaptide. Tension will lead to another kind of alopecia, namely the alopecia areata, which is always characterized as a specific range of hair loss, usually within a circular range.

Science, as the focus of social concerns, is continuously affecting people’s daily life. Further advances in science will benefit people more, with high-level efficacy in various research fields.





MCAT practice questions

Tue Sep 13, 2016 11:28 pm

by dhivyaa4n (Posted Tue Sep 13, 2016 11:28 pm)
An aldehyde reacts with a newly-discovered amine to form an imine molecule. Which of the following reaction types took place in this reaction?

A proton transfer
B nucleophilic addition
C acid base reaction
D elimination reaction

Why? Imines are molecules with a carbon nitrogen double bond (similar to a carbonyl, except nitrogen instead of oxygen). In the formation of an imine, the lone pair of electrons on the nitrogen on the amine attack the aldehyde carbon to form a new amine molecule, which after dehydration reaction becomes an imine. Thus (B) is the correct answer.

Which is the best stethoscope for medical students?

by rugilerar (Posted Mon Sep 05, 2016 4:15 am)
I have no idea how to choose it. The thing is that I'm not going to work in clinical medicine so I'll probably never need it after I graduate. Thus I was thinking about one from these single head stethoscopes. What do you think about it, which one would be decent enough to pass my exams but not too big investment as won't be used in the future?
