What are some of the topics a Chicago USMLE class can cover?

When taking the USMLE, it's important to familiarize yourself with the contents and format of the exam. Your Chicago USMLE class will cover the three different exams that make up the USMLE, which are Steps 1, 2, and 3. Let's discuss each of these so you can get a better idea of what to expect on the test.

Step 1 has 280 multiple-choice questions that will test you on your knowledge of basic science concepts that are essential to successfully practicing medicine. You will face questions on subjects like anatomy, biochemistry, pathology, physiology, pharmacology, and behavioral science. This is a one-day test session and med students usually take this test at the end of their second year in med school.

Step 2 has two types of tests: Clinical Knowledge (CK) and Clinical Skills (CS). For Step 2 CK, there are approximately 316 multiple-choice questions that will assess your medical know-how on clinical science principles necessary in providing patient care under supervised situations. Step 2 CS will require you to examine and diagnose actors playing patients. There will be 12 patient cases, and you are allotted 15 minutes to examine each patient and 10 minutes to write down your patient notes. This is a two-day testing session usually taken in the fourth year of med school.

Step 3 is the last stage of the exam. You need to pass Step 1 and Step 2 to be eligible for Step 3. Along with multiple-choice questions, this exam will also involve examining patients and giving your diagnosis. It is designed to assess your preparedness to practice general medicine without supervision.

What are the advantages of enrolling in a Chicago USMLE course?

It can be difficult for many med students to find a convenient way to prepare for the USMLE. One great feature of an online USMLE course is that you can have your test prep entirely online. This means that you will never have to worry about adding on a new commute, or how you can get a ride to class. There are many course times to choose from, which is another advantage of online courses. You can enroll in a morning course before you need to go to your med school classes or take your course in the evening when you might have more time to focus on studying.

If you are worried about not being able to ask questions or not getting timely feedback from your instructor in the online course, then you'll be glad to learn that the course is also live. This means you can see and hear your instructor and other students in the class. You will learn in a collaborative online space where you can engage in discussions and listen to the different perspectives of your classmates about certain medical topics or cases. And if you hit a wall on certain topics or just can't make sense of what you are trying to learn, you can request to meet with your instructor in a 1-on-1 meeting outside of class. This type of private support is another advantage of a Varsity Tutors Chicago USMLE prep course.
