The Cranial Nerves

A Map over The Cranial Nerves
Great Concept Map

When studying to learn what the cranial nerves are called and what they do, here is a little something to help. It is a concept map made by a guy called "hennargdj" who can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/user/hennagerdj. These types of learning materials are just not available in any books. Internet wins.

iFlashcards Free

By Medstud - Here is an app, iFlashcards Free, that can be useful instead of taking regular notes. One way of approaching a lecture is to reformulate what the lecturer says into questions. And put them in this app. It works wonders for your learning. Not very handy if you are into drawing concept maps and the likes. But after class you are sure to have a nice stack of simple questions, ready to be reviewed. If you are fast at typing on your phone, this is a cool way to vary your note taking. The developer has his own website. Check it out: FreezingBlue.

Ipad mini

By Medstud - What is the ultimate note taking strategy? Some swear by their pen and paper, color pencils others resort to just listening or just plan to doze off. Wouldn't it be nice to know that what you hear during the lectures will somehow stick? The quest for the ultimate lecture tactics is still going strong. 

 

What about the Ipad mini, will it fill the gap? Combined with a bluetooth keyboard and a good note taking app like Evernote oriAnnotate might do the trick. 

 

And reading a review over att imedicalapps they sure seem to like the ipad mini for use in a clinical setting. How it proves to be for a student remains to be seen. 

 

Technology is great for learning, but if we are honest... Don't we love these new gizmos as much for how fun they are?

Prognosis - Your Diagnosis

If you like games and if you like figuring out patient diagnoses you will probably like this app, Prognosis - Your Diagnosis from Medical Joyworks. There are many cases and new ones are uploaded on a weekly basis. The cases are presented in the different categories ob/gyn, pediactric, medicine, surgery and you can filter them to suit your wishes. Or you can do them all! The team at Medical Joyworks selects and reviews user submitted cases. There is also a great discussion at the end of each case. So if you can't sleep at night, just wip your phone out and get ready to learn! - Medstud

12 Rules for Doctors' Survival

I'm thinking about printing this out and bringing it to school :)

 

Rule 1: Do not take responsibility for things you cannot control.

Rule 2: Take care of yourself or you can't take care of anyone else.

Rule 3: Trouble is easier to prevent than to fix.

 

Rule 4: When you get upset, tune into what is going on with you and go through the Three Step Process.
1. What am I feeling?
2. What do I want?
3. What can I do about it?

Rule 5: If the answer to Rule 4, Step 3 is "Nothing", apply Rule 1.

Rule 6: Ask for support when you need it - give people permission to feel what they feel.

Rule 7: In a bad situation you have four options:
1. Leave it
2. Change it
3. Accept it
4. Reframe it

Rule 8: If you never make mistakes, you're not learning anything.

Rule 9: When a situation turns out badly look at where the choice points were, then decide what you would do differently next time.

Rule 10: At any given time you can only make decisions based on the information you have.

Rule 11: Life is not fair - or a contest.

Rule 12: You have to start where the patient is at.

 

This is taken from this blog. Thanks for some great advice!
