my study week #6 - my third year muji notebook

This time, it's the turn of my third year notebook. I used a Muji notebook here and I think I might have posted snippets of it before but I want to explain how I've taken the notes in it.

At the front, there's a brief 'contents' list which is always useful as sometimes, I have notebooks that cover a range of topics as opposed to just one. This one includes dermatology, STDs and neurology.


Derm is a huge topic and as one of the doctors on my general practice placement said when a chap with a rash came in, 'that's the beauty of dermatology; all rashes look the same'. Of course, he was joking but there is an awful lot of jargon to get used to. 

For me, there was no point taking derm notes without glueing in images and I was lucky that the notes below were adapted from a lecture. As a result, the images weren't too hard to find and were of a decent quality too. I've had to blur them out though as they are actual patient images.


Sexually transmitted diseases was another mammoth of a lecture. To try and make it easier for myself, I colour coded each disease with washi tape: orange being bacterial, pink meaning viral and blue for fungal. In hindsight, I should have probably done them in order as well (so viral first, then bacterial and finally fungal).


And finally, I re-wrote some notes from a blood transfusion lecture. This topic was another beastly one and unbelievably, was our first one on blood types and the different types of blood products. And this was a third year lecture! I did some pre-reading for it but even with that, I was still lost and this was why I decided to make these notes.


A longer post than usual and the pictures will definitely tell you a lot so even if you didn't read the text, I hope you gleaned a fair bit from the images!

  3. Your notes are so well laid out! Even though I'm very into notes and things, I could not have done that all that time ago while I was at uni! I was a bit too immature, plus that would have been less time spent on my mail art! Hehe.

  4. As a med lab technologist I am as surprised as you that you're just learning about blood banking and blood products!:)

    1. Hi Dione :) It's an interesting topic for sure and I think it's important for all healthcare professionals to know about blood products, etc :) Definitely helps with deciding which therapy to choose! x
