Med Palace System!
Med Palace System!
Hello everyone! I'm having a little bit of a problem with a systematic organization of a mind palace.
I'm a Med student, currently in the 4th semester, and I live in Brazil. My course here is a little bit different. It follows an active methodology that actually stimulates the student’s memorization and proactivity. It’s called Problem-Based Learning, or PBL. In place of lectures, we have a lot of clinical discussions and problem solving about each topic. Generalizing a bit, each semester we have 3 different disciplines, and each discipline w/ 5 or 6 discussions once a week, something about this:
1.1 History of Medicine – 5 discussions
1.2 Embryology – 6 discussions
1.3 Biochemistry – 7 discussions
2.1 Physiology – 6 discussions
2.2 Immunology – 6 discussions
2.3 Epidemiology – 4 discussions
3.1 Pediatrics – 5 discussions
3.2 Neurology - 7 discussions
And so forth. I want to build an organized system for my palaces so that I can remember my previous discussions, and help with tests and me helping other students (I give particular lessons about some classes). For example, creating a palace on Neurology, so that the first room can remind me of the pain and movement system, the second can remind me of the visual system/pathways, the third of the auditive system and so forth.
I don’t have a problem with visualization, my individual palaces usually go pretty well, and some that I built over than 6 months ago are still functional. I also have a lot of macro locations for my loci, so space isn’t the issue. The problem is that I can’t bring the organization to be alphabetic, because I have different disciplines with the same initials (Embryo and Epidemiology, Pediatrics, Physiology and Pain, and so on…).
I really can’t figure a way to organize it so that I can easily access it without mixing something, and making it remarkable. The numbers can help a bit (3.1 is always Pediatrics, 4.1 is always carcinogenesis), and I've thought on the Major System to help, but I don’t know how to bring them to a certain type of organization, or which macro locations to use…
Does anyone have a tip or can shed some light on my problem?
