A. Nothing. We recommend you jump right in.

Q. Can I still buy tutoring?

A. Students who have completed our online program, my purchase tutoring at our Champaign, IL facility in 2 week increments. We also provide housing.

Q. Will your programs benefit me if I am studying for the COMLEX exam?

A. The PASS Program has proven itself to be second to none in teaching the information that is tested on the COMLEX exam. For instance, last year, we added an average of 133 points for those students who were unsuccessful in passing it before attending our program.  A great portion of the exam involves the same principles that are tested on the USMLE. However, by helping DO students understand, rather than memorize, the concepts of physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, pathology and all the other basic medical sciences, we help these students excel on their exams. Moreover, we have Osteopathic physicians,  who have succeeded through the PASS Program, as instructors to help you with the OMM portion of the exam.  Finally, we will help you master the test taking skills that are essential for maximizing your performance. The PASS program does everything possible to ensure your success. All you have to do is ask other DO students who have attended our program.
