Yeah, the ALS course taught me so many new learning strategies, showed me so many resources available at Wayne to help us succeed, and laid out the expectations so clearly for our new curriculum
For example, the weekly formative quizzes keep us in check by making sure we are on top of the course load.
Also, concept mapping, where you make connections between all the information you learned and simplifying what has been taught by condensing it
Finally, while the academic component is important for success in medical school, professionalism is just as significant , if not more. It requires that we place the interests of patients above ourselves as student physicians. Also,it demands that we always set and maintain standards of competence and integrity as we embark on this journey and after.
