Introduction to my notes
This is my big project! Actually, I got this idea when I was in my second year, but I had to prioritize my own studies, so I wasn’t able to complete it.
I have spent hundreds of hours teaching students Biochemistry, Physiology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics during my studies at Semmelweis University. Out of all the questions I have been asked by current students the following is by far the most prevailing:
‘What and how should I study?’
Unfortulately, I won’t have time to give one-on-one tutoring to many students as I would like. Instead, I will try to help as many students as possible through my website.
I will try to make an overview of the curriculum I was expected to know when I had these subjects.
I also hope that this part of my website will give students at other Medical Universities or prospective students an overview of the curriculum at Semmelweis Medical University.
These were the topics I studied when I had these classes.
I will continuously update these notes.
The topic lists I have published are the topic lists I had and the topic lists I have published for the 5th year have been cleared by the departments (unless otherwise indicated).
Why am I doing this?
There are three main reasons:
- Helping my fellow students by giving an indication as to what and how I studied.
- Letting students in other countries and universities compare what we learn with their own curriculum.
- Some of my friends are taking the USMLE and since I won’t take it, I am using these pages to review all the material.
Use these notes as a guidance only!
I personally believe all of it is correct and they are my notes, after all, but I have to put in a disclaimer like that.
And a second and more important thing:
Don’t just stay at home and memorize stuff you read in books (or in my notes).
Ask you teachers, discuss with them, they have clinical experience of value far beyond what you can read in a book!
The stuff you learn during practices will stick so much harder in your memory than the things you read about around midnight the day before the exam.
