USMLE Step 1 Live On-Site Program


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.
