Workshop Description:
Are you worried about how to manage your time? Do you know how to have a study plan for your studies? How to have a study plan for the MCAT? Do you feel overwhelmed in managing your classes, studying, and extracurricular activities? Are you worried about standardized tests?
Then you should attend this workshop led by Carmen Estrada, a 4th year medical student at UC Davis School of Medicine. She will go over how to best tackle your studying as well as provide strategies for managing your time.

About the Speaker:
Carmen Estrada is a first-generation, Mexican-American student who grew up in Eastside San Jose. She received her BS in Biology with a concentration in human physiology and minor in chemistry at San Jose State University in December 2016. She took a year off to retake the MCAT and apply for medical school. She has worked with first-generation high school and undergraduate students since 2011 as an academic coach and mentor to help students achieve higher education. Since starting medical school in 2018 (UC Davis School of Medicine) she started mentoring pre-med students and medical students via Instagram @carmenseradoctora.
Her niche focuses on teaching students how to manage their time, how to create a study plan, and how to use strategies to improve standardized testing skills/concept retention. Having worked all throughout college, she understands that strategies need to take employment and family responsibilities into account. She also believes that these plans need to incorporate ways to relieve stress and improve mental health by creating schedules that don’t glorify studying 15 hours a day and instead carve out time for fun as well. Now a 4th-year medical student, she is currently interviewing for an emergency medicine residency.
