Learning Triangle
Learning Triangle 2

Our lecture covers all of the basic medical sciences in a very high yield fashion. Time is the most precious thing to a student, so it is very important to always learn medical information in a high yield fashion.

  • We start with the CONCEPTS that are the foundation of all of medicine.

  • We start at the top of the pyramid, rather than the bottom

  • Students are taught how to think rather than what to think.

  • Students are empowered to figure out the 'how's' and the 'why's' of medical information.

  • Your knowledge is not limited to only what you have read, rather you will be able to apply foundational concepts to any fact pattern.

Our Mission

The goals of the PASS Program go well beyond helping you to merely pass an exam. We want each and every student who participates in the program to actually master medical information.

We want your confidence high, and we want your desire to succeed strong. Hopefully, your spirit will rise higher and your confidence will become stronger.


Over the past 12 years, the PASS Program has maintained a greater than 93% success rate, with more than 80% of our students scoring above 200.

The average increase in points for students taking the USMLE after a previous failed attempt has been 40 points. One student's score went up 87 points after an 8 weeks program; another student's score improved 109 points after attending our program. We also helped another student's score improve by 151 points on the COMLEX exam. The greatest improvement in score was a student's score on the COMLEX, which improved by 400 points (on an 800 point scale). No matter how many points you may need, we feel we can help you achieve it!

Today, I can happily say that I passed the exam! I feel well prepared to start clinical rotations and study for the Step 2 exam. I’m not sure I could say that with the confidence I do today, had it not been for you and your guidance this summer. The lessons I learned at PASS far exceeded the scope of Step 1. I learned a lot about physiology and diseases but the most important lesson I learned this summer was to “Trust Thyself.” Much like you Dr. Francis. Thank you again!
