What can a Columbus USMLE class go over?
The USMLE, also known as the United States Medical Licensing Exams, is a test taken by individuals looking to receive a medical license in the United States. The USMLE has a three-step testing process which is usually completed over the course of seven years. Step One of the USMLE typically begins for a medical student at the end of their second year of schooling. Step One of the USMLE is a one-day test session consisting of 280 multiple choice questions which are divided into seven 60 minute blocks.
Step Two of the USMLE usually happens after a medical student's fourth year of school. Step Two features a Clinical Knowledge section and a Clinical Skills section. The Clinical Knowledge section is a one-day test session where individuals are asked to answer 316 multiple choice questions, broken up into eight 60 minute blocks. The Clinical Skills section relates to patient cases. Each student is given 12 patient cases, as well as 15 minutes for each patient meeting and 10 minutes to record patient notes. This portion of the exam is only administered at six different test centers in the United States which are in Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, and two facilities in Philadelphia. During the Clinical Skills portion of the USMLE, students are tested on three subcomponents: Spoken English Proficiency, Integrated Clinical Encounter, and Communication and Interpersonal Skills.
Step Three of the USMLE is usually taken during an individual's first or second year of postgraduate training. Step Three is broken up into two testing dates. On the first day, test-takers are given about 230 multiple choice test questions, divided into six 60 minute blocks, with each block containing about 40 questions. On day two, students are given about 180 multiple choice test questions, split into six 45 minute blocks, with each block including about 30 questions. Also on day two, there are 13 computer-based case simulations for students to work through. Each simulation is allowed a maximum of 10 or 20 minutes of real time.

Antonio: Columbus USMLE course instructor
I like to be creative and adapt to the learning style of a student. My goal is to make learning fun and never feel like a chore.... Adapt to what kind of learning the student best responds to; that way learning is fun and easy going, and never frustrating.... Get to know each other a bit, in order to know how to approach each topic the best way possible.... I think making different suggestions on how I taught myself, the material could bring some insight to someone in how to go about understanding the topic.

Oygul: Columbus USMLE course instructor
I have taught biology, chemistry and physics laboratory for three years, and have tutored these subjects and MCAT for the same number of years as well. I encourage my students to take an active learning approach and set goals of mastering the material rather then memorizing it. In addition to building a knowledge base, I like to emphasize critical thinking and problem solving. ... My teaching approach is based on the premise that intelligence is malleable. During my undergraduate years and teaching, I met a lot of students with deterministic view about their learning abilities, and saw how this belief affected them in areas they thought they were "not good at."? Usually, these students were worried about the outcome (grades) more than their performance during the course. I help alleviate their anxiety about grades by redirecting their attention to their learning habits.
