Stephen Goldberg, MD: Med School Made Ridiculously Simple (2017)

The information explosion in medicine causes significant student stress in medical, nursing, and other health professional schools. The big problem: There is too much to know and not enough time to learn it. This book offers medical students, nurses and other health professionals a guide to the 13 best methods for rapidly learning and memorizing medical information, and how to access reliable medical information quickly through 35 key medical search engines and selected apps. The book (formerly Memory Tools For Med School) also provides advice on dealing with stress, particularly depression, anxiety, and fatigue, which are significant impediments to learning, as well as thoughts on career choice. 81 pgs.
