Default Study group 2019-2020


Hello Dr. Shifa, hope all is well, this is Wasif, (Shadmani's brother).

I was wondering if you still want to study together. I have a study partner and we have decided to add a 3rd person into the mix for consistency. If you're still interested, we'd be delighted.


Quick overview of our current study plan:

- We're currently doing a comprehensive FA'19 (First Aid - 2019) read, at a pace of ~3 pages/day.

* * - Simultaneously we solve previous topic's questions (subject-wise) on our own from offline-UW'16 (UWorld - 2016).

- We're now starting Renal pathology, and we will move forward in the exact order of FA'19, ie after Renal path., then we'll do Renal-pharm, then start reproductive embryo, then reproductive-anatomy etc. until the end of the book.

* *- So we predict the book will finish in the next month or so.

- After that, we will have a rapid review of FA's previous topics & shift gears, making UWorld a 1st priority.

- After completion, will give our NMBE & focus on weaker topics, & use additional sources if/when needed (eg Pathoma, 100cases by conrad fisher, First aid Rx qbank, etc).

- We have daily sessions over Skype.

- Questions we want to solve/review as a group, we can previously inform before our session, & go over them before/after FA's daily read.**

- Who ever is reading (as we take turns per page/question), shares his screen. Then after the page/question finishes, if there're any questions or additional points, there're added.

- Daily session are currently 6days/week, every morning, for ~2-3hrs.

- I currently take 1 day off every week, usually Thursday's session, & so we decided that is our weekend.

- If a 3rd person is added, eg you & him can discuss questions or previous topics if you want to have a session in the weekend. Then from Friday we resume our daily routine.

- If there're are any additional days we need off, a 24hrs. heads up to the group.


If you're interested, I can go over our current study method in detail, and if you have suggestions, we can discuss that as well.

Please let us know, sooner the better. JZK!


Wasif, Choudhury
