Inhaltsangabe: Medical school is intense, demanding, and stressful. How can you overcome the challenges and excel?
How can you make the most of your preclinical years to build a strong foundation for your career as a physician? What do you need to do as a preclinical student to maximize your chances of matching with the specialty and residency program of your choice?
Consider the following:
- "There are some career specialties, however, that due to their highly competitive nature may require early decisions to be made about how to proceed in your medical school choices," writes the Georgetown University School of Medicine.
- The University of California Davis School of Medicine writes that "preclinical academic performance is important, not just as 'grades and scores,' but because excellence in your clinical years will depend on how well you've learned the lessons and discipline of your preclinical years." (University of California Davis School of Medicine website)
- "The knowledge gained during preclinical years provides the essential foundation for clerkship success," writes Dr. Shahram Lotfipour, Associate Dean and Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine.
- "In schools with non-pass/fail grading systems, high grades may be an important factor in class ranking for nomination to the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honor Society and for the residency application," writes Dr. Ali Alikhan, a faculty member in the Mayo Clinic Department of Dermatology. "Additionally, because the vast majority of dermatology applicants are outstanding, there is no need to take students with low basic science grades." (Alikhan)
- "As some residency programs are becoming more competitive because of either the reduction in the number of positions or the increase in the number of applicants, the USMLE scores are being used in various ways in making decisions on whom to select for interviews," writes the University of Washington School of Medicine. (University of Washington School of Medicine website)
- A survey of over 130 general surgery residency program directors found that most program directors value research involvement. However, 29.9% of program directors rarely or never placed value on research that was not published as an abstract or paper. (Research performed by Stony Brook University Medical Center)
- "We have found that medical school community service participation is positively associated with better academic performance and can influence residency selection and participation in service following graduation," writes the Medical University of South Carolina. (Research performed by the Medical University of South Carolina)
- "When looking at involvement in extracurricular activities, all program directors ranked 'leadership roles' as highly important," writes Dr. Kimberly Anderson, Professor of Surgery at the University of Texas Houston Medical School. (American College of Surgeons website)
To succeed in medical school, you'll obviously have to work hard. However, that's nowhere near enough. As faculty advisors, we've found that misperceptions about the factors leading to success as a student and in the residency match are shockingly common. Our detailed advice, based on evidence from research in the field and experiences with high-performing students, will provide you a strategy for success.
What study skills separate the top from the average students? What study skills can help boost performance on the USMLE exam? Are you at risk for a low USMLE score? How can you choose a research project and advisor that leads to publication? How can you participate in community service and make meaningful contributions? Why is leadership in medical school important?
Utilizing a strong combination of evidence-based advice and insider knowledge, this book will provide you the knowledge and guidance you need to achieve your goal: Success in Medical School.
From the Author:
"Where was the career guidance I needed for the past three years? No one sat me down in my first year and told me what it would take to get the career of my choice...I am not going to shine on my residency application, as I had hoped."
- S. Ellen Morch (Morch S. Students unprepared for residency application. CMAJ 1994; 151 (9): 1237-8)
Eighteen years have passed since these words were written by a fourth-year medical student, and yet we continue to counsel students who find themselves in the same position. "If I only knew then what I know now"" is sadly a common refrain among residency applicants.
According to the AAMC, the United States will have a shortage of 90,000 physicians by 2020. In the mid-1990s, the AAMC urged medical schools to expand enrollment. Class sizes have increased, and new schools have opened their doors. Unfortunately, rising enrollment in medical schools has not led to a corresponding increase in the number of residency positions.
As a result, medical students are finding it increasingly difficult to match with the specialty and program of their choice. "Competition is tightening," said Mona Signer, Executive Director of the National Resident Matching Program. "The growth in applicants is more than the increase in positions."
Now more than ever, preclinical students need to be well informed so that they can maximize their chances of success. The decisions you make early in medical school can have a significant impact on your future specialty options.
To build a strong foundation for your future physician career, and to match into your chosen field, you must maximize your preclinical education. In Success in Medical School, you'll learn specific strategies for success during these important years of medical school.
- Learn the differences between underachieving and high-achieving students.
- 7 Ways to Determine if You're at Risk for a Low USMLE Step 1 score (and what to do about it)
- In one survey of over 1,200 residency program directors, researchers determined the importance of 14 selection criteria. How important was research?
- Research that is published or presented is viewed more favorably by residency programs. What can you do to enhance your chances of publication?
- In a survey of plastic surgery residency program directors, leadership qualities were the most important subjective criterion used to evaluate applicants during the interview process. Learn about the type of leadership contributions programs value.
- In one study, although 96% of medical students rated mentors as important, only 36% actually reported having a mentor. How can you initiate and cultivate a relationship with a mentor?
Utilizing a unique combination of evidence-based advice and insiders' perspective, this book will help you achieve your goal - Success in Medical School.
