  • What's going on guys!

  • J from MedSchoolInsiders.com.

  • Many of you have asked for a tutorial on one of my favorite productivity apps Evernote.

  • To give you a brief overview, Evernote is a powerful note taking application.

  • I use it as my main tool for organizing notes in medical school.

  • Its main competitors at the current moment are Microsoft OneNote and Apples Notes.

  • This however is not a comparison video.

  • Evernote strength is in its search function; you don't have to worry about meticulously

  • organizing your notes in order to find what you are looking for.

  • You can throw all your notes, ideas and projects that Evernote and it will help you manage

  • them all with minimal effort.

  • In this video, I'll be giving you a brief overview of how to use Evernote effectively

  • as a student.

  • So how do you actually use Evernote?

  • It's organized into a series of notebooks and notes.

  • You can also make stacks which are groups of notebooks, like this one here which is

  • MS1 for the first year of medical school.

  • As a student, I created stacks for each of my years in medical school and within those

  • stacks I created notebooks for each subject or block.

  • So if you're a college student, I would use course titles or descriptions like chemistry,

  • physics, English etc.

  • For med school there are systems like cardiology, gastroenterology, hematology etc.

  • So, let's look at a quick example to demonstrate.

  • Within the first year I took MSK which is musculoskeletal.

  • I created individual notes for each lecture.

  • I also created condensed notes or summary sheets for each lecture to facilitate a more

  • active learning process.

  • In the note for the lecture, I imported the PDF document that the professor shared with

  • us.

  • In Evernote you can insert files within your note, so I often place either the PowerPoint

  • or PDF file that accompanies the lecture into the Evernote note as a reference.

  • You can then open the file from there and take notes within the document or annotate

  • and save.

  • Again, the search function is Evernote strengths.

  • So the program will actually index the content within the file, therefore when you search,

  • you'll also be looking within these documents.

  • So this hierarchy is a more traditional way to organize your notes.

  • Another powerful way to add another level of organization is with tags.

  • You can add several tags to each note, so let's look at some examples.

  • So, right here is anatomy.

  • In each block, we were going over relevant Anatomy to that system.

  • So for example, in cardiology, we learned about the anatomy of the heart and vasculature,

  • in pulmonology we learned about lung anatomy, in GI we learned about the digestive system

  • anatomy etc.

  • So rather than placing each anatomy lecture in a separate notebook, I tagged each one

  • with anatomy.

  • So, if I need to find any notes on Anatomy, I can search for this tag and they all show

  • up here.

  • While I do prefer the convenience, the efficiency and the flexibility of taking notes digitally,

  • there are definitely advantages to paper notes.

  • Drawing diagrams or taking notes on the go such as when you're not at a desk are usually

  • easier with a pen and paper.

  • I combine both and occasionally write notes or draw diagrams in my moleskine notebook

  • and import the image using my phone's camera.

  • So these handwritten notes can actually be searched.

  • This is a very powerful feature called optical character recognition or OCR.

  • So, Evernote looks at images in your notes to identify text even handwritten notes.

  • So, let's do an example, I'll search for viruses.

  • It knows the diagram, so I'm gonna put tag diagram and boom, here we go.

  • So it recognized my handwriting, RNA viruses at the top and even highlighted the word viruses

  • within this handwritten diagram that I made.

  • So, here's another example; I wrote in an actual notebook and use the scannable app

  • to quickly import the image into Evernote.

  • So my handwriting is absolutely horrendous in this note but Evernote was still able to

  • recognize a few words like hand is right there.

  • This was particularly useful for me during third and fourth years of med school, also

  • known as the clinical years, where you are not in the classroom taking notes on your

  • computer.

  • Instead, you're in the hospital and I would just jot down brief notes on a small notebook

  • just to capture an idea or important pearl.

  • Now Evernote premium comes with this handy feature allowing you to annotate either images

  • or documents within or the entire note as a PDF.

  • You can draw arrows, you can add text...

  • Like this, you can - you can add additional notes etc.

  • So, you can - you have a great deal of flexibility with this feature and you can do the same

  • thing on your mobile device, so whether that's your tablet or your phone.

  • I often used the annotate feature on my iPad when I was going through research articles

  • on PDF and I had a stylus and I could just highlight as if it was real paper on the document.

  • You can also share or collaborate on files or entire notebooks with other people.

  • You can choose whether they can view or also edit the actual note.

  • I honestly don't think that these sharing features are quite as strong as what you can

  • do with Google Docs or Google Drive, but if your friends are using Evernote, it's usually

  • good enough to get the job done.

  • I've used it a few times when dividing up work with a classmate and it's worked well

  • for us.

  • Now lastly, you can use Evernote completely free and that's where I recommend that you

  • start.

  • After trying up the free service, you can then decide if it's worth it for you to upgrade.

  • I personally now use the premium service.

  • There is a student discount available on their website.

  • The reason I upgraded from the free service is that with the premium, you get additional

  • storage, the ability to search within documents, the ability to annotate including on mobile

  • devices and offline copies on my mobile devices.

  • However, I again recommend that you start with the free version, see how you like it

  • before you upgrade to the premium.

  • I'd like to thank Lecturio for making this video possible.

  • So if you are either a pre-med or med student, this service will definitely benefit you.

  • They provide video lectures by educators from top institutions like Harvard, Yale and Johns

  • Hopkins.

  • They also provide quiz questions and topic reviews, all of which prepare medical students

  • for USMLE Step 1, Step 2 or Step 3 and pre-meds for the MCAT.

  • They also recently launched a pretty cool feature called Book Matcher where you take

  • a photo of your book page, whether that's first aid and it will provide you relevant

  • videos that will help to explain those concepts.

  • So you can learn more here on their website at lecturio.com.

  • They also have some free videos on their YouTube channel.

  • So if you are interested, go to lecturio/insider or use the coupon code insider20 for 20% off

  • your subscription.

  • Alright guys, that is it for this video.

  • Thank you all so much for watching.

  • If you liked the video, make sure you press that like button.

  • New videos every week, so hit subscribe if you haven't already and I'll see you guys

  • in the next one.

What's going on guys!
