Print The future doctors of America cut class. Not to gossip in the bathroom or flirt behind the bleachers. They skip to learn — at twice the speed. Some medical students follow along with class remotely, watching sped-up recordings of their professors at home, in their pajamas.
Others rarely tune in. At one school, attendance is so bad that a Nobel laureate recently lectured to mostly empty seats. NYU says it will cover tuition for all its medical students — both now and in the future These self-guided med students are akin to a group of American tourists wandering through Tokyo without a map.
Like a tour guide hired on the street, the online learning tools — including memory aids, videos, and online quizzes — can enhance the educational journey, or send the students down a dead end. Lawrence Wang, a third-year M. According to data from the Association for American Medical Colleges, 1 in 4 preclinical students watches educational videos — like those on YouTube — on a daily basis.
Leaders in medical education have begun to scramble. Some medical schools, like Harvard, have done away with lectures for the most part. Instead of spending hours in an auditorium, Harvard students learn the course content at home and then apply the knowledge in mandatory small group sessions.
Other institutions, like Johns Hopkins, are moving in the same direction, but have yet to make a full switch.

Hopkins cut down on lectures and boosted sessions that require active student participation. Preclinical lecture attendance hovers around 30 to 40 percent, according to Dr. Nancy Hueppchen, associate dean for curriculum.
For many students, she said, licensing exam prep begins on day one of medical school: When she took the exam, it was only used as a pass-fail test. Ryan Carlson, a third-year M. The exam focuses on rare diseases and other minutiae, said Carlson, who now tutors for the test.
Stephen Wang at SketchyMedical The medical tour guides That distrust has spawned a cottage industry of online study aids.
Most are a far cry from your high school SAT prep course. SketchyMedical is one of the most popular guides. Andrew Berg and his co-founders, Drs. Saud Siddiqui and Bryan Lemieux, started sketching pictures and pairing them with stories while taking microbiology in their second year of medical school.

Outside a storefront, the student finds construction workers, motorcyclists wearing brain-shaped helmets, piles of dripping-wet fish, and a man sporting an adrenal gland-shaped beanie.
The illustrations are turned into narrated videos, which teach drug names and their mechanisms and side effects. SketchyMedical has also produced videos on microbiology and pathology. Berg compares the work of Sketchy to hieroglyphics in ancient Egypt. But for many, Sketchy evokes a different technique used a thousand years later in ancient Greece: Memory palaces are typically imagined spaces in which a person can store information like a string of numbers or a series of words.
Each piece of information is placed somewhere inside the palace. When the palace builder wants to recall an item, she can take a mental stroll through the space to retrieve it.Lecture Videos Assignments Download Course Materials; The video for Lecture 1 was recorded in Fall The rest of the lectures were recorded in Fall , but video of Lecture 1 was not available.
