Whether you're a medical student at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio or another area school, or are a medical school graduate in residency preparing to take the final steps towards a medical license, we can find a San Antonio USMLE course that can address your current needs. Should you enroll in a course, you'll receive guidance from a qualified USMLE prep instructor, and you'll study alongside other medical students in a classroom environment.

What will I study in a San Antonio USMLE course?
The USMLE, or United States Medical Licensing Exam, is actually a set of three separate exams. These exams are known as Steps: most people will take Step 1 at the conclusion of their second year of medical school, and Step 2 at the end of their fourth, although technically these two Steps can be taken in any order. Step 3 requires you to have passed the previous two exams and is usually taken in the first two years of your residency. A San Antonio USMLE class can provide you with tutelage appropriate to your level of education, geared towards the Step you're preparing to take. As the USMLE is intended to assess your ability to practice medicine unsupervised in a clinical environment, the subject material it covers is quite broad. A truncated sample of the topics listed on the USMLE Content Outline includes such bodily systems as the Endocrine System, the Respiratory System, Skin & Subcutaneous Tissue, and so on. You'll also be tested on subjects like General Principles of Foundational Science and the Social Sciences. The range of medical knowledge you'll be required to demonstrate may be intimidating, but by working with an expert instructor, you can start making steady headway.
Understanding the USMLE format and how to take the exam can be nearly as important to your preparation as mastery of the subject matter itself. Each Step has its own format: Step 1 will ask you to answer multiple choice questions in six hour-long segments in a single day. Step 2 is spread across two days. The first day, covering Clinical Knowledge will require you to answer eight hour-long blocks of multiple choice questions, and the second day, Clinical Skills, consists of 12 patient cases that you'll need to address. Step 3 consists of 10.5 hours of multiple choice testing spread over two days, plus 13 computer-based case simulations you'll engage with on day two. You might be able to imagine how crucial test-taking skills can be when you're trying to pace yourself and maintain your edge while making your way through a solid eight hours of testing, and a San Antonio USMLE course can provide you with the tools you'll need to face the test with confidence.
How is a San Antonio USMLE class presented?
Your San Antonio USMLE course is taught in a virtual classroom that you'll be able to access anywhere that you have an internet connection. You'll see and speak with your instructor and your classmates over video chat, providing you with the same face-to-face learning experience that you'd have in a traditional classroom, but with some added benefits. By giving you control over your own learning environment, you'll be able to study wherever you feel most comfortable, productive, and distraction-free. You also won't have to squeeze an extra commute into your day, which can make scheduling easier and result in more efficient use of your study time.
You'll be provided with the tutelage of an expert in USMLE prep, who can lead you in a comprehensive review of the medical knowledge and skills you may need to pursue success on the exam. Your instructor can also host group activities and discussions, where you'll work through material with your classmates. Collaborative learning has been shown to aid students in information acquisition and retention and can expose you to new perspectives on material that may deepen your understanding. Helping other medical students come to grips with topics that you have an existing comprehension of can be an excellent way to review as well, and if you run up against subjects that you really struggle with, you'll be able to reserve private one-on-one time with your instructor to assist you in getting up to speed.

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.

...solving. After 7 years of tutoring, I became aware of many social and psychological factors and prior life experiences that can affect learning. This understanding allows me to help students manage their test-taking anxiety and challenge any negative beliefs that get in their way. I believe that intelligence is not fixed (and this idea is backed by neuroscience) and that anyone can improve by working smart, regardless of where they started. One of the challenges...

While our clinic offered much-needed medical attention, more importantly, it offered a symbol of hope for...
