Hi guys! I hope everyone is safe and healthy!

I wanted to ask for your opinion! I am entering residency in a few days and looking for the best resource to study from during my training.

My plan is to have one main resource to use and study for 30 min- 1h every day. Of course, whenever needed I will use more resources to understand a difficult concept
During medical school, I realized that the best way for me to learn is to use questions. So I believe that the best resource would be one much like UWorld. However, I don't want to waste UW qbank which in my understanding is really useful while preparing for the boards.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you!

Searching review papers on certain topics
For pathophys harrison's can actually be pretty helpful for remembering stuff you've forgotten from med school
Certain blogs like lifeinthefast lane, emcrit etc... can be pretty helpful for certain topics

You're going to realize very quickly that residency is a different beast than medical school. Read about your patients, first and foremost. Uptodate, etc. resource, whatever you need use the patients you see to guide you in various rotations. There are also MANY incredible podcasts out there now. You will find learning through podcasts driving to work, on a run, etc. may be your only time to get this kind of learning. Check them out, happy to add more if helpful
