We should go back to the old days where med students on the wards were actually functioning like interns and residents rather than spending 2 years memorizing low yield crap when B&B, Anki, UFAPS do a lot better work in shorter time and then spending 3rd year dealing with personality conflicts, glorified shadowing and other minimal things because liability
Medical school as it is now is a terrible system. The only thing proprietary to a medical school is the clinical educators and the patients. Why not cater to that?
At Syncrohnize's Medical School:
7am-8am: Clinical lecture (breakfast provided)
8am-9am: Walk to the hospital and watch selected parts of rounds.
9am-10am: Small group where clinical correlates are highlighted and clinical skills are coached by faculty to students either in the hospital with actual patients OR with SPs.
10am-12 pm: Basic Science Lectures Part 1
1-3pm: Basic Science Lectures Part 2
3-10 pm: Study, Travel, Wellness time for students
Break for hardcore study for Step 1 starting February of M2.
M3: Perform at the PGY-1 level in Medicine, Surgery, EM, Pediatrics, OB/GYN, etc.
M4: Ask students to semi-commit to what they want to do and split them into cohorts. Have them perform as a intern in their specialty (ex. neuro intern-PGY-2, etc). Get their subI done early before applications.
