“As a life long poor test taker, I thought I was was stupid. Even when I knew the material backwards and forwards, I often got the wrong answer on a standardized test. The skills I learned in test taking from the STATMed Boards Workshop changed that. What I know in an exam room can now be demonstrated on an exam!”
In this video, we go point by point to help you understand what makes med school so hard so you can head off challenges and overcome them.
Ryan goes over 3 reasons medical students shouldn’t spend time re-reading material & shares a more efficient — and effective – med school study strategy.
Our online Study Skills Class helps med students, physicians, and other medical professionals succeed in school and when taking boards exams.
“After multiple attempts taking USMLEs, in-training exams, and specialty board exams, I found the STATMed Boards Workshop. The result? I passed the next two board attempts (FM & EM) and I’m currently working on my third board certification! I couldn’t have done it without STATMed’s expertise.” – Kevin S.
“I took the STATMed Class after my MS-1 year and it changed my life. I went from just passing to scoring in the top 95% of my class in some of my courses, which in turn helped me do well on USMLE Step 1. Many of the attending physicians I worked with were impressed with my knowledge.” -Samae S.
“The results of taking the STATMed Class have been
phenomenal. I failed my 1st attempt at 1st year and had no idea what to do until I found STATMed. The difference has been like night and day. The two classes that got me last year just wrapped up, and I made a 22%
improvement in each! I did so well I’ll be a peer tutor next year. STATMed really came through.” – Vic A.
“I took the STATMed Class after struggling my first semester of vet school. The “toolbox” of learning strategies the class gave me helped me double my GPA (!) and secure my residency of choice. I have STATMed to thank for helping me unlock a future I had only imagined.” – Amanda S.
Any act of RETRIEVAL PRACTICE should follow three steps: choosing material; attempting retrieval; and self-check.
When I meet a struggling med student, the easiest strategy I can introduce is the 50/10 Study Rule, which breaks up an hour of studying into 2 parts.
