This is Mohanad Deen, I was part of your class in September, 2016 studying for Step 1. I took the Pass Program after failing Step 1 with a score of 190. Coming into the program I knew it was going to help me get through my struggles but I had no idea that it was going to completely overhaul how I see medicine and how I tackle every situation presented to me. I retook Step 1 shortly after finishing the 6 week program in November and I’m happy to inform you I passed with a score of 215. I’ve moved on since those dark days and I look forward to starting my clinical rotations in July. I am sorry it took me a while to reach back and say thank you Dr. Francis. I wholeheartedly believe the approach you took learning medicine will forever help me in my career and I will absolutely be rereading your book several times to prepare for Step 2 and possibly join you again in class in the future. Every medical school in the country needs to learn medicine the way you taught it. You taught me more than I expected and I’ll be sure to continue to practice medicine using the methods you developed throughout your career. Thank you very much for everything, I will be sure to spread the word about your program and how it helped me in my career path.
