Step 1

Mon Jul 24, 2017 3:15 am

by PageDrT (Posted Mon Jul 24, 2017 3:15 am)
Hey!

I'm joining the medical school force in Europe (6 year program). I want to take the USMLE Steps and noticed Americans take them after year 2 and during year 4. Should I take mine then after year 3 and during year 6?

I know I'm early-ish but planning is important.

Thanks!

MMI Guide - Resources and Tips

Wed Jun 07, 2017 4:48 pm

by JoshuaMed (Posted Wed Jun 07, 2017 4:48 pm)
Here is some advice from a medical student on doing well in the interviews.

Does which school you are applying to matter?

Seeing as to how I was accepted to multiple schools, I do not see why it would not work at any school that interviews students in the MMI format. Whether that is McMaster, UofT, Queens, McGill, Dalhousie, UBC, or any other school you have your sites on, MMI preparation is a skill that can be improved.

Part 1: Resources

1. A partner: You need someone to practice with on a weekly basis. Review recent health care articles together and ask each other prompts. Providing feedback for each other is crucial to learning from your mistakes.

2. Practice prompts: There are quite a few resources available such as UBC's own medical school (http://science-student.sites.olt.ubc.ca ... 3-2014.pdf). The best ones include answers to the questions (http://TeachDoctor.com/interview-questions/ ). If you want to improve your interviewing skills, it would make sense to simulate questions from the interview. This website includes in-depth answers from medical students. You can answer all the prompts in the world but how do you know if your answers are what the interviewers are looking for? This is why it is helpful to have a resource that provides helpful responses that you can practice with.

3. Medical Ethics: Ethics in Medicine (URL: http://depts.washington.edu/bioethx/topics/index.html). You are not expected to be a walking encyclopedia when it comes to medical ethics. Medical schools understand that incoming students should only have some knowledge on this topic.

4. Doing Right: A Practical Guide to Medical Ethics by Herbert. This book is held in high regard by a great deal of students. Does it actually help? I personally believe that the University of Washington’s online lessons are more than enough (see link 2). This book is an enjoyable read, but it does not involve enough active recall and practice. Reading it is a passive task that does not help in preparing you for the interview.

5. Communication and rapport: You should demonstrate an ability to establish rapport with patients. Obviously, there are indicators that people convey to the interviewer that they can or cannot convey empathy and consideration for other peoples’ perspectives. You should read the American Medical Association’s 6 tips on how to understand patients (URL: https://wire.ama-assn.org/education/6-s ... munication). Again, there are many books on this topic. But the main idea is that you want to convey empathy and establish rapport with patients.

Medical schools want to produce doctors who truly care for their patient. As a matter of fact, rapport and understanding the perspective of others is a central aspect of medicine.

MBBS IN EUROPE

Mon May 29, 2017 3:04 am

by Amy Turner (Posted Mon May 29, 2017 3:04 am)
There are 11 medical universities in Ukraine and the Bukovinian State Medical University, is in a little town called Chernivtsi, near the Moldovan and Romanian borders. It's a quiet little city but they have great people and very good teachers and staff. Also, it's quite a lot cheaper option than the other universities in Ukraine.





Are Foreign medical schools now a really bad idea?

by pnetra (Posted Thu May 25, 2017 6:42 am)
All foreign medical schools are not bad, because some foreign medical schools provides quality education,well infra-structured,highly experienced faculty and with practical knowledge.You will choose good medical school in foreign countries.Some schools have no need to require MCAT exam.
Any way it depends on your selection which Medical School you want to join. (image)

A good Medical Spell Check?

by Amy Turner (Posted Sat Mar 25, 2017 1:40 am)
I used microsoft word under the review section you find spelling and grammar check (requires internet connection) which can help you with most of chemical/ drug names. There is also a text to speech option under customize quick access toolbar > speak > add to list and you are done. Select the text you want to listen and click the play button on the top left corner. Hope you fine it helpful
