ESP Block 1: Self-Study Activities
The self-study begins with an introduction to the significance of learning style and its relationship to personality type. You will then progress through a series of videos that will culminate with two videos that apply the theory to learning methods. The outcome of the self-study will be an approach to managing your time and your learning with increasing skill as you progress through medical school. More information on the ESP is available at the Introduction to ESP video.
