As promised, today’s post is all about Butchart Gardens. We had so many pictures I thought it deserved its own post, separate from last week’s vacation posts (here and here).

Tips for Studying for USMLE Step 1

Tips for Studying for USMLE Step 1

This post is part of the series “2 Gals Take on Step 1” in collaboration with Caroline from Just Being Franke. Check out her Step 1 post here!

 

Well, friends, it’s time to talk about the Test That Must Not Be Named. Since “Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself,” though, I’ll go ahead and call it what it is: USMLE Step 1. This exam marks the end of the pre-clinical years of medical school and passing it is required to move on to the clinical years. Step 1 is meant to be a pass/fail exam, but since residencies are getting more competitive, program directors often use Step 1 scores to determine who they will interview for residency spots. This fact puts a lot of pressure on medical students to do well on the exam, and thus the national exam average increases every year. At the beginning of my second year of medical school, I scoured the internet searching for advice about how to tackle Step 1. Reading all of the advice was initially overwhelming, but it eventually helped me refine my study plan. I hope you will view this post as a jumping off point for figuring out your Step 1 study plan!

On Monday I shared all about the Washington part of our trip, and today is all about our Victoria, British Columbia itinerary. Victoria is absolutely beautiful, and it reminded me of a slower-paced European city. It was the perfect getaway! Read on to find out how we spent four days in Victoria.
