48 Learn Faster with Accelerated Learning in Medicine! Recap Part 3

In this episode, we will take our first recap look at accelerated learning techniques. Here, we focus on the limitations of our brain and our memory. With a deeper understanding of these limitations, we can plan to fight against the Forgetting Curve and succeed at learning quicker.

We will also take a broader view of speed reading and mind maps for medical students and give examples of how to use these in our current studies. Those who seek more direct advice on these topics can reach out to Chase, or visit FindARotation on the social media links below.
