If you are interested in signing up for a Boston USMLE prep course, you may want to consider reaching out to Varsity Tutors. We can enroll aspiring medical professionals in a Boston USMLE class led by an experienced instructor who is familiar with both the content and the format of the exam. Whether you are attending or have attended medical school at Harvard Medical School, Boston University School of Medicine, or Tufts University School of Medicine, you can feel confident that a private instructor in a Boston USMLE class has the knowledge to help you prepare for the exam. The USMLE covers a lot of very complex material. As such, you will likely need to spend a significant amount of time reviewing it. A Boston USMLE class can help with this process and can get you on track to work towards the exam.
What are some of the topics a Boston USMLE course can cover?
The United States Medical Licensing Exams, or USMLE, are taken by students in medical school who wish to become a licensed medical professional. The USMLE is actually divided into three parts, including Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3. Step 1 consists of 280 multiple-choice questions and covers basic science concepts that are involved in being able to practice medicine effectively. The Step 2 exam is broken down into two different sections, including Clinical Knowledge and Clinical Skills. The Clinical Knowledge section contains 316 multiple-choice questions and the Clinical Skills section involves meeting with 12 different patients. This section focuses on your spoken English proficiency and your communication and interpersonal skills. Finally, the Step 3 test is taken across two days and consists of 233 multiple-choice questions on the first day and 180 multiple-choice questions on the second day.
The various sections of the USMLE cover a lot of subject material, some of which includes the blood and lymphoreticular system, the immune system, and the gastrointestinal system. While reviewing material related to the different systems in the body is a key component of preparing for the exam, it can also be wise to work on developing skills such as time management. You will only have a limited amount of time to complete each section. As such, it can be useful to familiarize yourself with the test so you have some kind of understanding as to how much time you can spend on each question.
What are the advantages to enrolling in a Boston USMLE course?
Taking a Boston USMLE course can provide several advantages over studying for the exam on your own. Your instructor can lead you through a comprehensive review of the material that will likely be on the exam. Additionally, as your Boston USMLE course will consist of working with both an instructor and fellow students, your instructor can lead class discussions that can give you a chance to work with the material in a more practical setting. Collaborating with classmates can also increase your proficiency in the communication and interpersonal aspects of the exam as you can practice different scenarios with your fellow students acting as patients. The collaborative environment in your Boston USMLE course also allows for you to speak up and help fellow classmates as they need it. Teaching someone else a topic can be a great way of bolstering your own understanding of it, as teaching requires you to be able to explain the topic in great detail.
The nature of a Boston USMLE course also provides for immediate feedback from your instructor, which can be difficult to achieve studying on your own. If you are having trouble with a particular topic, you can meet with your instructor after class to get further clarification.
Another advantage of taking a Boston USMLE class is that classes take place entirely online. This makes fitting a class into your schedule easy because you don't have to worry about commuting. Instead, you can take your class online at your house or anywhere else you find to be a comfortable learning environment, such as a coffee shop or the library.
