17 Creating Visual Mnemonics with Sketchy Medical Drs. Bryan and Aaron Lemieux

Many students struggle when they begin making their own visual markers. They want examples created by others to guide them and spark their own creativity. Well, today we have Doctors Bryan and Aaron Lemieux from Sketchy Medical here to discuss how they went about making their visuals, and provide tips and mistakes to beware of. Sketchy Medical started in 2015, and has been a sensational hit among first and second year medical students. I’m grateful to be able to have two of the leading team members here to explain why. The Brothers Lemiux, I’m so glad you could join me today.
