hi everyone, i just recently started my medical rotations in med school and well the amount of information is pretty overwhelming TBH. rapid fire of patients that i just have to jot down in my notebook which is fine i can process them in the moment but i want to be able to use this experience later, not just for exams.
so to formulate my question better i have 2 questions
- first is that how you take notes while you’re at the hospital? what do you write down? what do you just let go to your memory ? how do you write things down?
- second is that do you have a workflow for how you process these notes? is it useful to process notes about all patients?
my current workflow so far with obsidian has been working quite well for me. i read my text books and listen to lectures then i create atomic evergreen notes from concepts discussed in the text book. if i encounter the same concepts elsewhere be it a lecture, a youtube video another chapter of my textbooks whatever i add the new information there. it has made for some amazing emergence for different concepts for example for almost all the diseases discussed during my internal medicine course i have pathologies and pharmacologic data for them availabe in the same note (accesible via links of course) and they all emerged from like 3 different texts
this works for now but i wanna know how i can incorporate patient data and new things i learn in the hospital to that
