Beyond Classrooms and Clerkships: Maximizing Your Time as a Medical Student

As a student, days and weeks may merge as you run back and forth from your home, to the classroom, or to the hospital. You’re working hard to earn the “Doctor” in front of your name, but what can you do to make sure you’re making the most of your time before residency? Studying takes up a lot of time, but if you are interested in teaching other medical students, volunteering, or doing research, it’s worth making the time. Join NEJM Resident 360 for a discussion where medical students can explore how to balance your time between studying and other activities while in medical school.

Topics we plan to review include:

  • How do I find the right balance between studying and other activities?
  • Should I get involved in research, volunteering, or teaching with my busy schedule?
  • If I am interested in volunteer work, can I use my new skills and add value as a medical student?
  • How can I build my teaching skills as a medical student?
