1.01 Introduction to MDScene

Thank you for purchasing the MDScene.com Microbiology Visual Mnemonics course.

The goal of MDScene.com is simple, we leverage visual mnemonics and virtual graphics to bring you
medical memory worlds that are scientifically proven to make you learn faster, retain more
knowledge, for a much longer period of time, and with greater long-term memory benefits. And this
translates directly to improved exam results in the subjects we teach.


Visual Mnemonics have been around since the time of the Ancient Greeks and were recently popularised with the Sherlock Holmes Detective series, whereby he uses a memory palace to perform incredible feats of memory.

What is less known, however, is that the highest-ranking healthcare students and the world’s best memory champions use this same Visual Mnemonic technique to be the best in their fields. The human mind is more attuned recognising to images and stories and is less familiar with abstract numbers and medical jargon. By converting unfamiliar information into more familiar images, we lessen the strain on the brain and make the information more memorable, and the learning experience that much more enjoyable.


And to get the most out of it, we have found the best way to use this course is to review scenes you remember easily in 3 weeks and weaker scenes in 3 days’ time.

Lastly, we’ve also created a companion Workbook (see the page below) that includes a series of fun memory exercises and bullet-point summaries. These will help tie in a number of learning methods – visual, auditory and kinesthetic – to immerse you in this unique experience and create more endearing and longer-lasting memories.


With that said, do enjoy yourself and don’t hesitate to send us your questions and feedback at [email protected]


All the best,
The MDScene.com Team
