In this video, we talk about my strategy for taking notes with the iPad and Apple Pencil. I use an iPad Pro but would probably recommend the new 2018 iPad with Apple Pencil if you're buying a new one. We talk about the benefits of taking notes with an iPad vs traditional methods, we talk about Notability vs OneNote (I prefer Notability), and I share various techniques of note-taking that I use in lectures, seminars and hospital placements. Enjoy xx

I'm Ali, a final year medical student at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. I'll be vlogging life and various other things throughout the year. I'm also making regular videos about application advice for UK medicine applicants, and at some point I'll start uploading videos of me and my friends singing popular songs.
I've decided to vlog my final year of being a medical student, starting with elective and ending with graduation. The aim is to get good at vlogging in preparation for vlogging junior doctor life from August 2018. Please subscribe if you'd like to follow along :)
