The STATMed Study Skills Class

Why is med school so hard? Because there’s an astronomical amount of information coming at you at an unrelenting pace. And you’re accountable for all of it! To top it all off, no one teaches smart students the best ways to study in general, or how to study in med school or for boards in particular.

The STATMed Study Skills Class was designed to fix all of this.

Learn the best methods for studying medicine in any environment, from first-year didactics to independent board prep. Mix and match the skills (under our expert guidance) to create the study system that is right for you. Learn them in our super-small live online classes, where we use authentic med school material to teach each skill.

By the time you have completed the ten-day STATMed Class, you’ll have a wide array of tools in place so that every time you sit down to study, you’ll know exactly what to do to get the most bang for your buck.

What Our Students Say

“I took the STATMed Class after my MS-1 year and it changed my life.”

“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.

“Getting into medical school means you have the smarts to master the material, but doesn’t necessarily mean you know how to study.”

“Getting into medical school means you have the smarts to master the material, but doesn’t necessarily mean you know how to study. I was stuck in a cycle of feeling like I was drowning in material. I was studying all the time and not seeing results. I was looking for specific, actionable advice on what I was doing wrong. Ryan and his team are a great resource for the mechanics and literature behind learning and studying. STATMed taught me a skillset that I could incorporate into my study methods for boards and classes; it gave me confidence that if I hit a roadblock, there were ways around it.” -Dr. Z, Surgery Resident

How does it work?

Small Online Classes

We keep each STATMed Class small so we get to know each student, provide relevant feedback, have genuine back and forth conversations about the skills being taught, and help create customized study systems that fit each student’s needs.

Multi-Step Teaching Process

We present each skill step-by-step, in isolation, illustrated in a variety of models. Then we practice the skill with immediate feedback; next you iterate on the skill for homework, where we encourage experimentation and even (gasp) failure! Finally, we debrief the process the next day, which is where the real learning happens. We keep doing this with each new skill, and toward the end of the class, we start integrating the skills together. | Watch the video on our 4-Step Teaching Process »

Real Medical Learning Materials

Every skill is illustrated with relevant, authentic med school and boards-based materials. All homework also uses a variety of real-word, highly-relevant med school material. Sometimes, you can even use your own material if you want.
