For me, it was extremely helpful with gaining the study skills I needed to master the high yield concepts in medical school. We learn so much information, and there’s really no way you’re going to master EVERYTHING, so MED really prepared me with how to identify the high yield concepts and not get caught up in the small details. Furthermore, with the vast amount of information we do have to know, sometimes your undergraduate study skills don’t necessarily transfer well to medical school. MED gave me the opportunity to try different study tactics, both in a group and individually. Today I use a lot of the study skills I tested out in MED, when studying for my exams, and group studying with my classmates. Lastly, I will say that the MED curriculum was particularly helpful when coming to UNC SOM. ALL of the MED curriculum has been reflected within the UNC SOM curriculum. It gave me a foundation, so this is actually my second run through with seeing a lot of the information I’m learning now. So, it’s very helpful to have a solid medical background going into these medical school courses that I would otherwise not have.
