“You’ve been working through high school, through college. You’ve spent 6 or 8 years of your life going to this point and getting to be a doctor, and in two weeks, it gets stopped dead in its tracks.”
“I am grateful that this program came into my life when it did and gave me a second chance to pursue my dream of being a doctor.” – Dr. MJ
“If you have ADHD along with a high miss rate (in testing), we likely understand why it’s happening and how to lay out steps to start to fix it.” – Ryan Orwig

“These issues can likely be mitigated and managed with proper methodology. Because methodology does matter — especially when studying and learning in med school.”
“There are a couple of components to retrieval practice that’s important if you’re going to do it correctly, If you’re doing a self-test, it’s important to check for depth, breadth, and accuracy.”
