Greetings everyone

I am an IMG, 5+ year old graduate

A try to keep myself on the track and keep an eye on my schedule so that i don't trip in any way.

I have started pathology..
doing from Pathoma (1st round)
Heard Dr Goljan is good too but More people suggested Pathoma so i am doing from this book plus Videos.

Hope i am doing the right thing?? any suggestions???


well.. i am at 2nd chapter of inflammation... so far chapter 1 with pathoma was awesome...

Rough Plan:

Pathology(15-20days)
Physiology(10-15days)
Pharmacology(10-15days)
Microbiology(10-15days)
Immunology(10days)
Biochemistry(10-15 days)
Anatomy(10-15days)
Histology(5days)
Embryology(2-3days)
BS (10-15 days)

Fingers crossed



Good luck to me and everyone around as well smiling face

Day- 2

Was doing chapter-Inflammation

Realized, this chapter needs good grasp on immunology which i felt i was having very faded memory so just listened to the lecture and marked it to be done after immunology

Onto next chapter of neoplasia.




  #3

Day-2 ends here...................................................!

Did chapter Inflammation and neoplasia 4/6 lectures;

remaining 2 lecture for tomorrow..

NB- could not utilize maximum time as had plenty of distraction, will try to avoid them tomorrow

I would recommend all starters not to begin with PATHOLOGY(i just did a mistake) , instead begin with Anatomy, histology or mirco-immunology.

My subject sequence needs to be revised in terms of priority...

Day-3 ;

"Positive thinking evokes MORE energy, MORE initiative, MORE happiness".- John Assaraf

Starting Day with A GOOD thought and applying into YOUR life is a wonderful thing...,

Without wasting time... continuing pathology lectures..

Good luck Aurora!

After a short hiatus i am back.. reason : i had no internet access

But Good thing : I am almost done with pathoma then plan is to pick either physiology or micro immuno with anatomy/Histology along with that. Crossing fingers for that.

So today was my Day 12th and and just 2 chapters away and Pathlogy first round will be over yay for that but was actually a futile round as i could not recall and associate pathology topics with other subjetcs as a part of integration and association.. which is why i concluded few days ago that choosing pathology to begin with was my Very first mistake and pray & hope was last mistake too.But as i didn't want to stop that midway and start off with other subject ,so i am glad that i did pathology in time ( approx.~15days) and it is a good boost for me to keep marching forward with confdence that i can do it

Okay will be back soon with my more study updates, till then keep studying

Whoa!! After exactly One year

Seems like its have been my habit of making new year resolutions and stick with that for a while and then BOOM!! Bad,eh?

well, Quick review: Finished Pathoma, Goljan once and half biochemistry and half anatomy in full last year thats it???Tooooooo Bad, I know.

I dont understand why studying is soooo tough and why do i procrastinate this much... Grrr..

I was so much involved myself in my work that i completely neglected my REAL Plan and Real GOAL, i.e USMLE

I think thatS where keeping this journal comes so handy and keep track of your routine and progress.

I PROMISE to myself THIS TIME, that i will keep this journal, whether i m studying or not... so that i have an account to address where my time is getting lost or got lost which GOD FORBIDS, i dont do same again.AMEN!

"GOTTA DO IT,DAMN IT"
