Summary of project We continued the Cliff Notes sessions with the fourth course in the 1st year students' curriculum - Principles of Disease. Several 2nd year students make up a panel and offer advice for the course, recommended textbooks, study styles, and pearls of wisdom that we wished we had known. About 3/4 of the 1st year class attended the hour lunch meeting, asked questions and received some valuable advice!

Lessons/suggestions It was VERY easy to organize because many students enjoy offering advice and the benefits of their experience. A Power Point presentation really helps to keep the meeting organized, and we bring all our study materials from the course to show the students.
