    [–] If you could make one change/improvement to Anki, what would it be? coyefish379 1 points ago in medicalschoolanki

    The neuro deck could be more succinct. It’s the weakest deck in my opinion and I deleted a good number of cards.

    Well bless you. I wish everyone were like you!

    This post isn’t about “actual” assault. It’s about sexual harassment. Reporting to the police would be called for if a patient tried to rape me but what happens when he slaps my butt? Or tells me he wants to have my babies?

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. coyefish379 47 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    No that’s a great question! I’m sure you’re aware that the training to become a physician is anywhere from 7-12 years and in that time you don’t have a lot of mobility. Ie once you’ve been accepted to a medical school, you can’t just switch- same with residency. For example, medical students are graded by their attending/residents and if you’re calling patients out when they ask you out/say they want to sleep with you/ stalk you on social media, requesting a different patient puts you at risk for looking over sensitive or complaining. There are just to many hospitals and health systems that have a culture of “just deal with it” or “take it as a compliment”. It’s hard to do much else besides report to HR.

    I would like to note that there are a lot of men on this thread giving advice on a problem they have never experienced.

    If you were ever looking for an explanation for “man-splaining”, this it is folks.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. coyefish379 148 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    This is great advice, if you own your own very successful practice. However for the rest of us, residents, nurses, medical students, literally everyone else- please recognize that “just tell them to stop/threaten legal action” isn’t really the best call for our future careers. Not everyone is as disgusted by this kind of behavior as you are unfortunately.

    I personally hear a lot of “oh well he’s just a patient ya know. I’m sure he’s just trying to make a joke. Just brush it off!”

    [–] Average score and I'm not ashamed. Step 1 score reveal/write up/AMA. coyefish379 1 points ago in step1

    Late to the party but congrats!! You said anki- how far into each deck did you get before you stopped?

    [–] If I were to cap the number of reviews I do per day to 200, for example, and I have 400 total reviews, how does the Anki program decide which 200 cards I’m going to do that day? coyefish379 3 points ago in medicalschoolanki

    First of all that's awesome that you're doing so many cards! But I agree with above, as someone who is trying to catch up on 6k reviews, I definitely wish I had kept up with them instead of adding new cards. Our school also has a lot of mandatories/irrelevant material (whomp) so I try to restrict new cards to things that overlap and things that I haven't already covered in previous decks. That might help you cut down the time a little.

    [–] I've Only Eaten Meat and Cheese for 7 Years — And Lost 130 Pounds Doing It coyefish379 5 points ago in Health

    As in all science, it’s not really a yes or no, but a “most likely yes”. The most evidenced-based diet right now is a completely plant-based diet- in part due to the vitamins and natural antioxidants found in plants. The WHO has even classified processed meats as carcinogens (in the same category of certainty as smoking, I might add).

    Unlike plant-based diets, long-term studies with keto are lacking. While it definitely helps people lose weight, there is cause for concern.

    [–] Critique my study plan. coyefish379 2 points ago in medicalschoolanki

    How many hours a day are you studying? Will you be doing this alongside schoolwork? Do you have experience with anki or have you already used any other Step resources (sketchy, pathoma, boards ad beyond etc.)?

    [–] What’s the human body version of a ‘check engine light’? coyefish379 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Sexual dysfunction in males.

    This is often the first indication of general cardiovascular dysfunction and is critical to see someone about.

    [–] Anyone else feeling uneasy with the rise of incel and similar communities? coyefish379 3 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Saying it loud for the people in the back:

    It’s not culture overall that is toxic. It’s Toxic. Masculinity.

    Masculinity that says that without bravery and strength, men are failures and any show of weakness puts them at the back of the pack. This is why mental health is stigmatized.

    [–] Started late. Move on or go back? coyefish379 1 points ago in medicalschoolanki

    Obviously best case scenario you do all the cards and hurray you’re the Queen of Anki. But you also have to be realistic about what you can keep up with. Think about how sustainable your current anki pace is. Can you add an additional hour a day for new reviews/cards?

    Something I did for the biochem deck when I had a similar problem was to set a low number of new cards per day and spread it out over a couple modules. That way I wasn’t overwhelmed by the new cards and it still got done. I highly recommend the cardio deck though. It overlaps with the other decks so well and for our curriculum, it had stuff that we learned in other modules. At the very least do the path part.

    Good luck!! Nice job keeping up with it so far!!

    [–] Texan college student really trying to move to Miami after I graduate this May. How can I go about it? coyefish379 2 points ago in Miami

    Most people do have a car but I live on the metro line and don’t have a problem. I work at Jackson Memorial so it’s a quick ride on the metro away. Not having a car allowed me to get a slightly better location for my apartment.

    [–] How to use Anki on the daily coyefish379 1 points ago in medicalschoolanki

    That’s what I usually go for in my zanki deck- a little better for my older decks.

    [–] Data Point for Lightyear vs. Zanki coyefish379 1 points ago in medicalschoolanki

    I’ve done both for renal and a couple others. Zanki never misses anything major (like a whole disease or something) just details every now and then. I just like BnB to understand the concepts behind the cards I do- occasionally adding reminders in the “extra” section.

    [–] How to use Anki on the daily coyefish379 2 points ago in medicalschoolanki

    How are your statistics? If you’re getting 95% of your short term correct you could increase the interval to decrease your review cars count. I also would recommend looking for premade decks and tagging/unsuspendig relevant cards. This saved me HOURS first year and I never turned back. Some kindly MS2/3 had decks they shared for some modules and they were live savers.

    [–] Street level activists are leading the fight against fentanyl deaths — and it’s working coyefish379 1 points ago in UpliftingNews

    On a separate but related note I would like to point out that giving people these test strips and naloxone is the most “pro-life” stance you could possibly take. In my experience advocating for needle exchange and other services for people who inject drugs (PWID), the people who think we should just let PWID die are the same people that are wildly pro-life on the abortion issue. Our team constantly gets asked why we keep saving them “if they’re just going to do drugs/overdose again”

    We’re just trying to keep people alive long enough to help them get their lives together.

    [–] Street level activists are leading the fight against fentanyl deaths — and it’s working coyefish379 1 points ago in UpliftingNews

    I work in Miami at the only needle exchange in Florida and we give these out all the time! The only problem is that almost 100% of the heroin here tests positive for fentanyl. It’s a great awareness tool though. Additionally, without the central location of a syringe exchange, it’s difficult to distribute the tests (or naloxone for that matter) in other parts of Florida.

    People who inject drugs aren’t really looking to be found by public health professionals.

    [–] Suggestions for Shaving Down Zanki Cards coyefish379 1 points ago in medicalschoolanki

    As I’m going though the deck, I actually delete cards. I know lots of people suspend them but I find it cathartic to delete things I know without a doubt. Ie there’s a zero percent chance I forget that CN I is olfactory or that a GPCR is transmembrane. If you can find cards like that, it really cuts down.
