MOST RECENT

Never forget that we are living on borrowed time.

Every moment we exist, every experience we have, every minute spent doing something, or with someone, is a gift.

While living our lives it’s easy to forget that life itself is transient.

We are not guaranteed another 10 years, another birthday, a tomorrow. Illness can strike at any moment. All our activities, even walking or running, carry risk. Tragedies are rampant.

But rather than worry, live with intention. Although it’s cliche, we really should live like every day is our last, spending time and attention on things that really matter to us, and moving on from things that don’t.

I am looking forward to time with my father and family tomorrow.

Look at morphology or arrangement of their processes:
Classification of Neurons
• 3 major types based on morphology in relation to their shape and the arrangement of their processes

Bipolar
• Single dendrite and single axon (retina, ear, olfactory epithelium)
• Cell body; 2 processes coming out of it
• Sensory neurons, afferent; special senses
• 1 end is dendrites the other hand is axon
Unipolar
• Single process emanating from soma (sensory neurons)
• Pseudo-unipolar neurons
o Kind of look like bipolar
• You see cell body that looks closely attached to axon; 1 process coming out from cell body and splits onto axonal and dendritic process; the whole damn thing is an axon
• Somatosensory neurons; cell bodies in dorsal root ganglion of spinal cord; all sensory information that’s coming from special senses
• Most common in the body ------------------------------------------------ #mcatpdf #mcatstudying #mcatstudyprep #mcatprep #mcat #mcat2015 #mcat2016 #mcat2017 #premed #premedicine #medschool #medicina #medico #doctor #medica #medschool #clinica #anatomy #school #med #medstudent #phisician #medlife #physician - @mcatpdf - MCAT PDF NOTES

Repost from @dentistrymyworld1. This was a reconstructive procedure by @dr.mutaf.

This woman was severely burned in a house fire when she was 1 year old.

The surgeon used cartilage taken from her ribs to reconstruct her nose, hair from her head for her eyebrows, tissue from her arm and fat from her body to restore more natural facial dimensions in 3D, and skin from her neck to restore burned parts of her face.

While I know close to nothing about medicine and reconstructive surgery since I haven’t started medical school yet, I know one thing.

This work is a manifestation of a lifetime of commitment. Learning medicine, practicing procedures, studying, and always improving has to become a way of life. We are witnessing a person’s life purpose.

I am making an excel version of my MCAT tracking spreadsheet to give to you all for free.

This is the first of 3 spreadsheets I’m making to help you. I’m also creating a semester planning spreadsheet for your undergraduate premed years, and one for tracking your medical school application cycle.

In this MCAT spreadsheet, I have a page that tracks the number of hours you study and what you plan to do vs. what you do (i.e. your productivity). This page is pictured here, and for me, green was a 6+ hour day, yellow 4+ hours, and red <4 hours. You MUST reach 365 for a strong score. I hit ~325 hours and scored a 511 with mediocre performance on test day.

There are also pages to track your incorrect answers, the right answer, what the source was, type of question, and why you got it wrong. This is crucial for improving your score.

What other things would you find helpful in the MCAT spreadsheet? Are you interested in downloading? Let me know 👇🏽 below.

Also this is reposted from my personal account @afitsurgeon. There I share my personal insights, and my journey in becoming a reconstructive surgeon.

I had a great time with you In Montreal my bro.

@king_standards and I have been friends since 4th grade. We celebrated birthdays together (👉🏽swipe), shoveled driveways for $5 together, said hurtful words to each other together, dealt with a teacher that picked on us as the only black students in class together, and pulled hamstrings racing down the street together (this was yesterday).

Khari is a very introspective person. He reads a book a month, works toward building his business while working full time, thinks deeply about relationships within his family, why they are what they are, and how they can improve. He has ambitions that drive him every day. He is a good person, and a devout Christian.

I learn a lot from him.

My other friends @hotdadnation and @trollins34 are in town for the next month too. Time to reconnect soon while we’re all nearby.

Late #featurefriday 📸 post but just as important! This week I want share this really inspirational young man @mohammedmajrashi.

He is a premedical undergraduate student taking summer courses to apply to medical school in a few years.

Here he is presenting his research on Sickle Cell Disease at his college’s annual research symposium!

When you are trying to get straight A’s, and when you are studying for the MCAT, things in life will often get in your way. Your final grades and score are just as dependent on how you manage your life as how well you study and perform on your exam.

Mohammed is great at managing his health and family responsibilities while still improving his GPA. He communicates well with his teachers, wakes up early, and manages his time wisely, to make sure he stays productive and gets everything he needs to get done.

Keep working hard and hold tight to your goal.

For all my life I have been my biggest motivator and my biggest critic.

I am in constant communication with myself about what I am doing well, what I have done well, and what I will do well in.

I am also hyper-aware of my weaknesses and what I can improve, to the point where I can list them off in detail.

I try not to get too high or too low, but remain just in the middle. I’ve learned that all ups are accompanied with downs, and all downs with ups.

The key is steady resilience with a consistent and slow incline. Like an investment that slowly grows with decades. A mental investment in oneself.

This is my barber Julio talking to a customer. Look at the smile on his face.

Before he moved to the US, he was an interior designer making a good living. Unfortunately he couldn’t transfer his credentials so he had to start a new career, and he decided on being a barber.

I’ve been his customer for years, and I’ve always seen how unhappy he was with the owner of the shops he worked at taking a significant amount of his pay.

Over years he started to dream of his own shop. He crafted the design, the experience, and the culture in his mind.

You are looking at what he created. He opened his shop @templeofgroom2708 last Monday after over a year of putting it together after work.

This week’s #featurefriday is @victoragbafe 📸!

Swipe right 👉🏽 to see our message thread.

Victor earned a 4.00 gpa this semester at Harvard. He was taking applied physics, 2 government courses, and a language course (Igbo). He was also studying for the MCAT exam. Talk about time management... ⏰.

He shares some quick reflections on the semester. Things to note are how he did a significant amount of work before the semester even started. This means he stayed motivated to be productive on vacation, and he knew which classes he would take in advance.

He also has a strong emphasis on good writing. Remember, there is no 4.00 without acing humanities classes as well.

CONGRATS VICTOR 🎉!

DM me your successes (and failures) for feature Friday! For improving your writing and planning your semester, check out the website.

I was a 14 year old city kid with good grades who could hoop. My father planted the ambition in me not just to do well in school but to see how far the sport could take me.

After doing well in a basketball camp one summer, I was asked to visit a boarding school and see how I liked it.

“I don’t want to go to boarding school papa... I don’t want to leave my friends,” I cried.

“Don’t say no to something without at least seeing it,” he said.

We visited the school together (@phillipsexeter) and I was blown away by the facilities and campus. As soon as I stepped foot on the green lawn, I knew I wanted to go.

That one decision and advice from my father, led me down a path to attend Harvard college and now Harvard med. Lesson learned.

Life/website updates for you ambitious students.

I haven’t been as active on the account and publishing since I’ve been finishing some last minute things in the medical school application cycle.

This week I was accepted off the waitlist at Harvard medical school! Although I’m excited about the opportunity to attend, I’m more excited about the credibility that comes with it. This acceptance reminds me that things I share about academics and medical admissions is good advice, and it motivates me to keep writing to help you achieve your goals.

The website has been updated with a best resources page! I have a consistent schedule of Instagram and Twitter posts coming your way. And best of all, more helpful articles on a variety of topics.

See you around the site. Feel free to follow my personal page @afitsurgeon.

New study spot coming together

“He never realized that people are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.” - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist.

Yesterday I was accepted off the waitlist into Harvard medical school class of 2022. I am so thankful for this opportunity.

I am even more thankful to the countless people who have taught me, mentored me, and guided me to help me get here. My teachers, my recommenders, my parents and family, and my friends, thank you for your role in my life.

I am also thankful to myself, for not giving up on my dream no matter how hard I convinced myself to when I was tired, depressed, anxious, heartbroken, a failure, and doubtful of my abilities.

I still have so much to learn, in fact the rest of my life will be spent learning, practicing, and growing. But it feels good to have come this far. I hope to share the things that helped me get here with other students on @ambistudent.
