OBGYN Clerkship Review

Now that I’m a week out from my OBGYN clerkship (and shelf exam), I thought I would write an OBGYN clerkship review!

Med School Monday is back! I’ve been an MS3 for two weeks! Here’s what I’ve been up to:

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!

Hi, friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful Tuesday! I’m back at school today for my last two weeks of MS2. These last two weeks are part of a course called “Integrative,” and we are having lectures and small groups that pull together concepts from all of our coursework over the past two years. After the semester is over, I’ll start my dedicated study time for Step 1 (6 weeks). It all feels so surreal that in a few short months I’ll finally be working with patients!
