3 Step Learning
We’ve broken it down to 3 simple steps to ace your microbiology exams.
Why Visual Mnemonics?
We all know how difficult it is to learn and remember vast amounts of information, especially when it comes to medicine. The human brain is not designed to remember large amounts of information for long periods of time, and this is where visual mnemonics can help.
Visual mnemonics are memory aids that use pictures and images to help you remember information. They work by association, linking the information you want to remember with a visual image. This means that you can recall the information more easily, more quickly and keep remembering it for much longer (see the references below).
There are many different ways to create visual mnemonics. You can use everyday objects, such as a pencil or a penny coin, to create an image that represents the information you want to remember, such as penicillin. Or you can create more abstract images, using shapes or symbols, such as wings that look like lungs to represent lungs.
We’ve minimised the work you have to do, by creating medical visual mnemonics courses. So go ahead, start learning medicine more effectively and ace your exams!
Scientific studies on mnemonics
What Our Early Testers Had to say
What if there was a better way?
This simple question describes the creation of MDScene.com. Having gone through medical school, and undergraduate health care studies, through the many all-nighters of revision, the many weekends pouring over textbooks and hauling up in libraries, we asked ourselves, what if there was a better and faster way to learn? Instead of brute-forcing facts into our brains, what if we could instinctively remember them, and automate our recall.
Researching into the world memory championships, and scientific literature, we came upon the method of loci. Simply put, it’s an extremely effective memory technique that converts information into more familiar images.
It is this very memory technique that is used by the world’s best memory champions and the highest-ranking healthcare students.
And so we set to work, creating MDScene.com.
Most frequent questions and answers
These courses are for healthcare students. Namely medical students, physician associates, nursing students, and allied health professionals.
The topics covered in each course should give you a strong base on the specific topic (be it microbiology, pharmacology etc.)
However, we must stress that this course does not replace your normal university lectures, clinical attachments and local guidelines; therefore use these courses as adjuncts to your university studies.
They should save you a lot of revision time, improve your speed of recall, and allow you to remember a vast amount of knowledge for much longer. Ultimately, these courses will make the learning journey much more enjoyable.
Yes, the required curriculums of all three have been thoroughly reviewed during the creation of our courses.
The courses also lend themselves to healthcare studies in additional fields and countries.
All video courses have a free trial of 5 lessons. To access these, simply click on the ‘Try It For Free’ button.
Our videos range from 5 minutes to 25minutes depending on the topic, but average around 10 minutes.
Our advice is to watch the video on your first revision session, and in future sessions, you may use the summary workbook to quickly revise key points in seconds.
The workbook is now included with the Microbiology Visual Mnemonic Course.
