PASS OFFERS A

PROGRAM TO

YOUR NEEDS

Our step 1 course will excite you. Then, it will enlighten and empower you! We completely review the basic medical sciences in an organ system based format. More importantly, we show you how to apply them to endless clinical situations.

We begin each day by doing a few randomly chosen USMLE or COMLEX questions so that we are helping each student develop excellent test taking skills. The classes are taught in a very interactive manner. This means that students are encouraged to ask questions; and questions are asked of every student. Therefore, learning is not simply passive.

Each day, each topic is designed to teach one large concept as well as several small ones. This makes large amounts of information much more manageable. We drill students on high yield clues both during class and in drill sessions held in the evenings. Finally, each student then receives one-on-one sessions weekly to help each student develop the self-confidence and accuracy required to perform well on the exams.

We are pleased to bring you board prep in the comfort of your own home! Students will now be able to attend PASS Program LIVE via internet.

PASS Program is proud to bring you our On-Demand program! Our approach is to get you to understand the foundation of medicine that is needed for all steps of your exam. 

Our USMLE Step 2 program is not like that of any other program. We understand that in order to reason out the abnormal, you first have to understand the normal. Therefore, we have all of our students first review the basic medical sciences again, to refresh their minds of the normal processes. Then, we teach you how to take that information and apply it to the abnormal, from making the diagnosis to understanding the management of the illness. After that, we then apply the information to areas like Internal Medicine, Surgery, Psychiatry, Obstetrics and Gynecology,  and Pediatrics.

COMLEX-USA Level 1

Our COMLEX Level 1 program is set up to directly correlate with our USMLE Step 1 program. You will sit through the same lectures and learn the same information with the addition of a few provided OMM resources (when available). Both tests are primarily compromised of all the basic medical sciences so mastering this information is the key to passing both. We will be showing you how to apply that information to endless clinical situations. You will also have some of your one-on-one tutoring sessions with another D.O. physician (when available). These same physicians will also be conducting weekly OMM drills to assist you with that aspect of your learning.

Board Certification

The Board Certification Program is done on a case by case basis. However, the areas of medicine that we are willing to accept include Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, and Emergency Medicine. Any physician who is interested in assistance with board certification will be referred to Dr. Francis. He will then contact that physician, discuss their needs in passing their exams, and then outline what PASS Program will do to help them succeed.

Participants will be encouraged to attend the classes that are being held during the weeks that they are here at the program. In addition, the participant will receive a one hour tutorial session each day (Monday thru Friday). As we do the questions with the individual, we essentially discuss the best approaches to the different standardized test questions and we discuss the main concept contained in the questions. We also try to discuss the main topics that are tested frequently.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own question banks which are used in their field of medicine. Please call our office at (217) 378-8018 to schedule!

Online Morning Questions

Join us online for our popular Morning Questions. We begin each day by doing a few randomly chosen USMLE or COMLEX questions so that we are helping each student develop excellent test taking skills. The classes are taught in a very interactive manner but online students will only be able to watch as our instructor takes you through strategies for approaching test questions. Our onsite students are always encouraged to ask questions and questions are asked of students there as well. Therefore, learning is not simply passive and you benefit from common questions and concerns that will arise in these sessions.
