When getting my AAS in Medical Lab Technology I worked two jobs, for my BS in Healthcare Administration I worked full time. I always gave myself a cut off time for homework and a personal day. Your time in Med School may be a lot less flexible compared to my time in school but you know how your body works. You know how many hours of sleep you need and you know where and when you can be more productive on a daily basis. Keep it real with yourself and stay focused, you made it this far.

Alicia recommends the following next steps:

  • Give yourself a day a week or every other week to "clock out" and do something you enjoy.
  • Study materials will be there the next day, don't stress and miss out on the sleep you need.
  • Remember to eat good food, stay away from the junk, it makes you more groggy.
