The Institute of Medical Boards

Announcement: our January 2nd – February 10th, 2017 Step 1 program has reached capacity. Registrations received from August 16th 2016 are put onto the waiting list. We are doing everything we can to try accommodate the students on the wait list and will be in contact with you soon. 

Many of our theories are based on the extremely effective model created in 1981 by Dr. Robert Blanc. Working from Dr. Blanc’s successful platform, which was initially launched at the University Of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC),  the faculty have become proficient at strategies that assist students in: mastering the ability to answer board-style questions correctly, improve study skills for long term memory, and enhance concentration which is essential for working on an eight or nine hour examination.

Through our experience, we have solidified the insight that passing the USMLE/COMLEX is not only based on the material students have learned in medical school, but there is a realm of other aspects that come into play when answering multiple choice questions.

To be effective on the board examinations, students need to master the necessary skills of interdisciplinary techniques that are beneficial to test-takers. Thus, we developed an incomparable Method© that assists students in utilizing their reasoning skills, knowledge base, critical thinking, and integration when working board-style questions. This is truly the key to success.

In order to achieve top board scores, a thorough understanding of board-style question interpretation and thought processing is a must in preparation for USMLE and COMLEX. We teach these skills.

We are honored to offer you a program that continues to evolve, flourish, and to enable you, our student, to acquire abilities that will assist you in achieving your goals.


Success Stories

I just wanted to thank everyone for providing the tools to prepare for the COMLEX level 2.  I did take my exam and I am so happy to report that I passed my exam with a great score (I went up 230 points!)  I think the program is a great program and after my previous failure I am so relieved, so happy and just simply elated.  I was numb for a couple of days until it finally hit me that I in fact did pass.  Without a doubt, the method does work.  I will testify to that.  So expect to see me for Step 3 review.

With residency spots being so competitive I knew it was a good idea to take a board review program before taking Step 1, but I was really dreading sitting through more lectures. I was so happy to find The Institute for Medical Boards. Their cognitive learning styles helped me retain and understand a lot more information. It all paid off, I got a higher score than I even anticipated - 259 on USMLE.
