Vital Elements Of A USMLE Review
by ftplectures 08-11-2014, 02:48 AM

There is always a two-way track learning procedure which includes a procedure planned to realize a coveted result. The USMLE is the same with learning. It starts with a joint attempt between the tutor who gives support and supervision, and the student who recognizes his personal responsibility to make the most of the learning situations; in this instance, the USMLE review.

To get the a large number of the USMLE reviews, we should focus on the following components:

Resources :
These pertain to both human and physical object, like a USMLE video lectures , made available for the review participants. The resource materials aim to help the medical students understand the concepts and principles in the medical profession in order to achieve success with USMLE.

The system of communication in review sessions are aimed at promoting common understanding in the review sessions and maintain a healthy climate in lecture rooms conducive to learning.

Learning Environment :

Learning starts from reacting to a stimulus in the environment, for that matter the review environment assumes an important role in the review and learning process.

Strategies :
These are the planned activities and tasks that are undertaken by the review mentors and the medical students with each review sessions to bring about the intended review objectives. An effective USMLE review strategy employs a variety of methods that will set the mood for review session activities.

Content :
Content embraces everything there is that has to be covered in the USMLE review and therefore, learned. A review sees to it that the content is secured as well as comprehended too. Every student can easily understand the objectives behind the content and also understand their medicinal proficiency.

Motivation :
This is a cardinal principle in review and learning. A medical student will learn only those things he wants to learn. If he is not interested to learn things, he will not engage himself in the review process at all. Effective USMLE mentors are good in motivating medical students because they know how to capture and hold the student's attention. When the medical student feels disinterested in the review topic, there is no chance at all for review or learning to take place.

This means habitual or automatic change in behavior brought about by the medical student having internalized what he has acquired through repetition and application. It denotes ability to put constant use what has been fixed in the mind and to apply such in future situations and where need arises.

These components are vital in every review and learning situation. It should be present in the learning process. Medical student can easily find out the best resource according to their capability and understanding. It will help medical students to choose actual USMLE boards.
