How our live in-person classes work:

  • Enroll for a Course:

    Once you enroll in a course, you will receive a confirmation email with all details required to get ready for classes and a start date.  Students are required to submit a recent NBME Assessment to identify a baseline.

  • Before classes begin:

    An instructor will have a meeting with the student to review his/her strengths and weaknesses based on the PTC Assessment.  This will help to develop a personalized study plan accordingly.

  • Join your class:

    So you’ve received your start date and completed the online student intake form.  Now, on the days of the classes, join your classmates at the center.  Remember to dress comfortably but be professional.

USMLE Step 1 Course Cycle

Some commonly asked questions.

The Step 1 exam contains multiple-choice questions that assess your medical skills in the following basic science knowledge areas:

  • Anatomy
  • Behavioral sciences
  • Biochemistry
  • Microbiology
  • Pathology
  • Pharmacology
  • Physiology
  • Interdisciplinary topics, such as nutrition, genetics, and aging

This is a one-day, 8-hour examination. There are seven blocks. Each block is 1-hour long.

The number of questions per block on a given examination form may vary but will not exceed 40.  The total number of items on the overall examination form will not exceed 280.

Typically, most US med school students take this exam at the end of their second year.

International medical school graduates take USMLE Step 1 after becoming licensed doctors in their own countries to work toward being licensed to practice medicine in the United States.  These physicians must take the following steps to take the exam:

  • Register online with ECFMG (Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates)
  • Receive an identification number from ECFMG
  • Book their exam online on a year-round basis

On February 12th, 2020, co-sponsors of the USMLE Program, the FSBM and NBME®, announced that the USMLE Step 1 exam will no longer be scored as a 3-digit numerical score. This change will be implemented no sooner than January 2022.

As of January 2021, the attempt limit for each USMLE Step component will reduce from six to four.

From March 2021, USMLE candidates will need to pass the Step 1 exam as an eligibility requirement in order to take the Step 2 CS exam.

Medsmarter was a phenomenal experience. Before starting the program, I was trying to juggle several different resources and unsure how to approach studying for Step 1. Once the program started... read more
