Developing a Board Exam Brain: Learning as a Clinical Skill

Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm




The CEE invites all students to this upcoming presentation from Dr. John Pelley. Dr. Pelley will be describing how learning skills are also clinical skills. The major topics include the Growth Mindset concept, personality type and learning style, the neurobiology of personality type, memorization vs. clinical thinking skills, the role of sleep in learning, and the use of Deliberate Practice in developing intelligence and superior skill performance.

An example study system that makes use of time available throughout the school year will be introduced as a way of preparing students for the continually increasing demands of health sciences programs. It will be helpful but not essential if attendees visit Dr. Pelley's Success Types Medical Education Page and download the free book, Success Types.
