Mind On Med Ultimate Guide to Studying for USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX

Step1Date

A couple of months ago I asked a few of my favorite online medical students to answer a few questions about their experiences preparing for Step 1 and COMLEX. They gave me some very insightful answers, so I wanted to share them with you. This post is simply to create a comprehensive answer to the question we all have as second year med students, holymaterialexcessiveness how do I even begin to prepare for this? Believe me […]

Night People Smart, Morning People Happy?

Alarm

I remember as a kid staying overnight at my grandparents’ house during the summers – the days always seemed to start out with the two of them getting up at (what seemed to me) a ridiculously early hour. They’d sip black coffee and chat and my grandma would fry up some bacon and scramble an egg for my cousin and I when we finally rolled out of bed well after the sun had said it’s […]

Why Medicine?

Why Medicine

“Why Medicine?” - the second most common question I’m asked as a medical student (after “What kind of doctor do you want to be?”). Not an easy question to answer, really – but a valid one and one I often ask to my interviewees during their medical school interviews. I think some people expect a profound, life-changing story about the ER physician who brought me back from the brink or an inspiring timeline of how I’ve wanted to […]

A Little Red Change

Red Hair

Do you ever feel like you just need to make a change? Not a big change. I never get the urge to auction my life off on Ebay (all yours for one low price – a Mazda, stressful medical exams, & crazy dogs! BUY NOW)…that’s going too far…especially for someone who gets palpitations thinking about changing blog headers and profile pictures. Just little things. I’m pretty good at neglecting my hair – last year I went […]

Medical School in Canada

Med Ed Monday - Canada

I was recently contacted by Jessica, a 21-year old 2nd year medical student at the University of Alberta in Canada, offering to teach us about Medical Education in Canada! She complete 3 years of undergrad in Vancouver, BC – her focus of study was Microbiology. Jessica runs the blog Atalanta’s Antics and also tells me she’s a film nut, choir director, hockey pseudo-player, actor, pianist and BBC fan. This chick is the dictionary definition of […]

Hoarders: Med Student Edition

White Coat WTF

I’ve expressed my disdain regarding wearing my white lab coat many times around here - it’s hot, it’s uncomfortable, it’s germy - but something I’ve never allowed myself to admit is that sometimes it can be kind of useful (SOMETIMES. like when it’s not being annoying…or stiff…or disgusting). The pockets are just under 14 light years deep, so if you need to carry a galaxy or two with you into a patient room or 14 Red Bulls and […]

Post-Halloween Comedic Relief

Last week Jimmy Kimmel issued a challenge to his viewers: Tell your kids you ate all their Halloween candy and record their reactions. The results were nothing short of hilarious. Pay particular attention to the two boys at the end. Tweet This Post

About The Author

I’m a Medical Student (that means I'm in school to become a doctor). My life story can be viewed here. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit school and move to Hollywood, so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact I'm probably a spambot. Or a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
