    Where are you learning the most neurology from: yourself or your attendings?

    I'm a PGY-2. I feel like I've learned a lot so far this year, but I still feel like most of my knowledge as been learned by self-study & a few key attendings who put forth the effort to actually teach minutia & explain their reasoning. I feel like I am mostly teaching myself though. I feel like...

    School Learning Styles

    I have seen a lot of information on whether a school has didatics, TBL, and PBL and I'm wondering what the major differences are between each of them and what it is actually like to learn through these styles. What schools use all three vs only one?

    Best Radiology learning resource for Rad Onc resident

    I am currently a fourth year going into Rad Onc. After speaking with a number of current Rad Onc residents about making the transition into residency, it sounds like the most common advice and useful skill is to learn how to interpret CTs and MRIs now, before I actually start my PGY-2 year. In...

    How do I gauge teaching and supervision in a residency program?

    I am an M4 who will soon be creating a rank list for psychiatry programs. I've been able to compare a lot of objective features in places, like climate, location, areas of particular strength/emphasis, and resident profiles. But one thing I haven't been able to get a sense of is "what it would...

My question is, are these videos such a good learning tool that they should be used alongside MS1 courses to learn the basic sciences and systems? Or, is...

    Is didactic learning really that bad?

    So I may be the odd man out, but I actually enjoy lecture. During undergrad I never skipped a lecture, because I really felt like it was a good way to be introduced to a topic. I learned a lot from lecture alone. If I was unclear on something, I would watch Khan Academy Videos and other...

    Western University of Health Scicences?

    Hello, I have been hearing for students of the podiatry program that the president of this school is making it the "Harvard" of podiatry and that it is miserable.
