Time Management and the Premed Student: A Blueprint for Success

To be a successful premed student, you have to have good time management skills. You have multiple tasks to handle at all times.  Classes, research, extracurricular activities, volunteer work, and possibly a job will fill your schedule — and you have to excel at each. If you learn to manage your calendar more effectively, you will find that life becomes a bit easier.

Learning to prioritize your tasks may be the most significant part of time management. You have to decide which items are most important – it may help to make a list. Classes and extracurricular activities should be high priorities for a premed student.

Once you have determined your priorities, you can create a schedule to budget your time. You may not be able to finish your priority list each week but you can make major dents in it. It is also important to follow the schedule. If you become sloppy and allow yourself to get sidetracked, you may find that time has flown by and you still have things left to do.

Efficiency is another part of time management. Because you do have so many things to complete, you need to learn how to complete tasks without wasting time. Your friends may hang out on the lawn for hours after meal time each afternoon; however, you should be able to use that time to complete some homework or fulfill other responsibilities.

Properly managing you time requires discipline, which will be useful for your medical school career too. For more tips on time management and being a premed student, visit National Premed Consulting.

    Successful time management as a premed is not only crucial for getting into medical school, it is incredibly important for the rest of your life. Especially if you are a medical student or doctor, time will always be scarce. Therefore, make sure you build good habits as an undergraduate. Everyone has 24 hours in a day but the most successful people make the most use of those 24 hours.

    I suspect that that effects the timing has to do that, he literally goes line by line and memorizes it and it s working well for him but I don t know that he could handle that under the full time load if he wasn t a master student. He could of course couldn t answer that either because he doesn t know.

    Time management is everyone’s problem. In modern times, the difficulty has become “so much to do but so little time”. A lack of time management can lead to stress, anxiety and lack of sleep, which ultimately has a detrimental effect on health and performance.
