Medical school course notes: An integrative self-assessing approach

Posted by jake in Uncategorized

Here are many of the notes I made in the second year of classes at UMass Med School. In putting these notes together, I attempted to bring a little bit of order to the deluge of information that is otherwise known as the second year of medical school. I also tried to tie together similar concepts across subjects. Many of the blocks include questions for self-assessment.

    AWESOME notes. These are just the thing to read over right before the test. Do you realize that you are halfway to writing your own Board review book? BRS is great, but your pictures really make these notes worthwhile. Keep ‘em coming and you could be graduating from med school with NO debt and a nice publishing contract!

    I just wanted to let you know that you are known as THE Legend among the second years, and that your dedication and passion for medical education (aka, your amazing sent-from-the-heaven notes) are saving all of our dunkies. Thank you so much.

    Hey Jake,

    How you doing? Did you and your girl get married yet? Thanks for the notes, you’re the best. You know you should have a publishing deal when the teachers refer their students to your notes!
