Core Course Assistance
Assistance in the second-year SOM curriculum is primarily provided by the course faculty.
Preparation for USMLE Step 1
OESS educators are available by appointment to discuss effective
study strategies for combining USMLE Step 1 review with mastering
second-year curricular material. Performing solidly in second-year core
courses typically increases USMLE scores more than sacrificing core
course studying to focus specifically on USMLE review.
If there is sufficient student interest, OESS educators will offer
reviews of specific first-year subjects; these reviews typically are
scheduled to coordinate with the content of the second-year curriculum.
