    MSE19: Study Group Guidelines

    MSE19: Study Group Guidelines

    In this episode I will talk about what makes a study group work. In preparation for this podcast I primarily read a 2017 review by Keren et al. 
    Just to be clear, when I talk about study groups, I am referring to a self-created group that meets to share information and learn together, not a group created during a certain course like an anatomy tank group or a Genetics small group where the whole class has a project or assignment over the semester. At my med school, the support staff would put you together with a study group if you wanted, and I was so amazed at how well that worked out. Two of us became dermatologists, one a general surgeon, and they are two of my closest med school friends to this day. So not entirely self-created, but you get the distinction.
    So let’s make some guidelines for what a study group should be doing for you. If yours is not meeting these guidelines, consider finding a new group.
