There is no new news for MS2s but please see the new Career Advising tip below.
Tip of the Month” from the Career Advising Student Advisory Board
Studying for Step 1 can feel demoralizing at times and very stressful. Here are some tips on maintaining wellness through Step 1 dedicated:
- Take one day off a week. It’s helpful to physically go somewhere that is not your home/study space
- Try restarting a hobby or visiting with friends once a week
- Use academic support services (https://education.uwmedicine.org/student-affairs/academic-support/) If you’re feeling overwhelmed, or scores aren’t improving for a while, etc., meet with them to re-evaluate your plan.
There is no perfect study plan, and you’ll have to be adaptable, so just go into it with an open mind. Remember that scoring low in the beginning is very common and not unexpected. Keep going! 😊
