Peg System Memory Training and Creativity for Medical Students

April 10, 2019

Why should you learn the peg system? Will it help you with your academic studies? These and other questions and concerns will be covered in today’s episode!

The Peg System is a versatile mnemonic system for remembering small strings of numbers. However, this system can also work to develop your foundational skills for more complex memory techniques.

Here we will cover some of my philosophy on the Peg System, variations to it, and go over two examples of how to implement your pegs in a dynamic way.
