Step 2/Level 2: Daily Schedule

Daily Schedule

(Subject to change)

In keeping our programs small we are able to focus on each student’s progress throughout the program.

No lectures in classrooms, all higher-order thinking active-classroom learning style. 

The schedule:

  1. ★System Based Supplemental Instruction® (SBSI). During these sessions, students analyze and explore complex and fundamental high- yield topics through the use of our templates while reviewing topics tested on Step 2:  Surgery, GI, Rheumatoid, OB/Gyn, Renal, Endocrine, Cardiology, Pediatrics, Pulmonary, Neurology, Heme/Oncology, Psychiatry, Biostats, Patient Health and Ethics. 
  2. Question Group: here we assess how each student integrates information into the questions and if they are able to note the distractors in the questions and use critical thinking when answering board-style questions. We also work on timing, test-taking strategies, and processing during these sessions. 


★System Based Supplemental Instruction® (SBSI)

Supplemental Instruction  has proven results in:

  • enabling students to increase long-term retention
  • develop strategies for understanding and comprehending the material
  • develop strategies for grasping more challenging areas of study
  • allows the student to pinpoint areas where they still need assistance in understanding the material
  • enables students to master course content while they develop and integrate effective learning and study strategies

When Class Lets Out

A detailed homework schedule is provided. 


Weekends are scheduled for  Mock Board exams. 

To accomplish the full benefit of our program students are required to attend ALL sessions and complete homework daily.
