The Most Practical Illustrative Guide to Medical Student Conduct Ever Created

If you want to have half the medical school skills that I possess... You will take these lessons to heart.

It's the holiday season and while many of you medical students and me wannabees out there are sitting on your fat keisters and losing your competitive edge. I have been doing research on how to be even more awesome at medical school (it may not be possible for me because I've already reached the pinnacle of greatness... twice). My search was turning up very little in the way of advice that is actually superior to something my giant brain has already conceived, but then I ran across this little gem. It's nothing I don't already do, but the drawings are great for memorization purposes.

It is such a perfectly distilled set of practical medical student skills that I might have cried while reading it if I was prone to such pansy things as crying. If you do not read this twice, momorize it, and put into practice ever skill it espouses... you are a cad and a fool! You should also check out the website from wence it came. I  do not personally approve of all the techniques that are illustrated on the site, but at least Dr. Fizzy McFizz actually created a website and wrote the book "A Cartoon Guide To Becoming a Doctor". Looks great on her CV and will only serve to propel her to a new level of personal greatness (even if that level will always be directly below the level I have already acheived in medical school). If you have any tips as sweet as these (hardly likely) that I could use to launch myself to further greatness, leave a comment above.
