Scutted-out medical students and exhausted interns have no time to waste studying for the USMLE Steps 2 and 3 exams. That’s where we come in.
We cover all the major fields of medicine tested on the USMLE exams: Internal Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics-Gynecology, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Psychiatry, Neurology, Dermatology, Radiology, Emergency Medicine, and Medical Ethics/law. However, in contrast to most review texts, we have targeted each chapter toward clinicians who are not going into that field of medicine. Thus, Family Medicine is written for surgeons, Obstetrics-Gynecology is written for psychiatrists, Internal Medicine is written for pediatricians, and so on
None of you surgeons out there want to spend the 5 minutes you have before nodding off to sleep learning Dermatology for the USMLE Step 2 or 3 exam! Rather, you need a concise review, broad in content but lacking extensive detail, to jar your memory of testable concepts you long ago learned and forgot. Don’t waste your precious waking hours poring over voluminous review texts! Remember, sleep when you can sleep. During those few minutes before dozing off in the call room, use a text written by colleagues and designed to help you breeze through the subjects you have little interest in and have forgotten most of, but in which you need to review the most. Like you, we know and live by the old axiom: study 2 months for the USMLE Step 1 exam, 2 days for the Step 2 exam, and bring a Number 2 pencil to the Step 3 exam!
