Urgent Medical Advice Needed

Patient

Q: Hello Doctor,

My question is actually an advice. So please pay me some attention.
I'm a medical student, going into my 3rd year, with a life-time dream of becoming a great doctor/surgeon (so far).
I admit I'm smart, and I love learning but deeply hate studying (memorizing things word by word etc) and after not doing so well in some subjects I'm starting to doubt myself. I'm Sure I don't want to switch colleges but my low self esteem and not knowing how to progress is pulling me down.
I dont know how to cope with the stress of exams or study properly..
How can I become a successful student better yet a great doctor?
Thank you for your time.
