“Excellent, well thought out and well designed. This is a MUST-HAVE review program for anyone aspiring for USMLE.  Being a part of this program was most definitely a breath of fresh air.  It was not only the best prep program I have ever”…

“The owner of Medsmarter brought it to my attention that someone had posted a disparaging review using my name. I used Medsmarter to prepare for USMLE Step 2 and thought they did a fantastic job. Thanks to their help, I am now an MD studying for USMLE Step 3 and applying for residency this year.”

“Medsmarter is a great prep program if you’re interested in a focused and more individualized approach to studying for your USMLE Step exams. I am a detail-oriented individual with a lot of knowledge, however, I did not know how to focus that knowledge on exams…”

Melanie Rookwood, Step 2 CK

“MedSmarter was a great experience!  Scheduling was easy and they were very accommodating with my tight time schedule.  Dr. Shaikh was excellent, lots of one on one tutoring and plenty of practice cases.  I feel way more comfortable going into the exam.  I definitely recommend!”

Kyle Humphrey, USMLE Step 2 CS
