Exam Strategy & Tutoring

We have a radiation oncology resident onboard this journey with you and me who helps with exam techniques and strategies to enhance your test-taking skills.  What do we focus on? Your ultimate aim is to pick the correct answer choice and get a question right. Even if you don’t know the concept or fact, there are many clues in the question stem and options which can help you reach the best possible answer. This is the process used to save time and maximize your scores in each exam. How we set up your USMLE Strategy session? We set up a meeting with you one-on-one over Skype, Zoom or any video chat medium and try to find out your strengths and weaknesses and work on them to maximize the odds of your success! Understanding your strengths and weaknesses will help the exam strategy tutor to tailor an approach to your individual needs. This usually includes a minimum of two initial sessions as we need this time to cement your Q&A approach to do your best on test day!

Plans for Interview prep/Mock Interviews

  •  Bootcamp style group interviews with our interview experts, attendings, fellows or residents, pre-scheduled according to availability. They are interactive and have the benefit of seeing how you perform alongside your peers, ability to pair up with your session members and practice after the bootcamp.

  • One-on-one IV prep/mock sessions for those who need extra assistance to make sure you are interview ready. These sessions can be personalized prior to your  IV, matching answers based on your strengths and the program offerings. 

  • When the team conducts mock interviews: they are broken down into Basic IV skills, Behavioral IV Tactics, Clinical Question scenarios, and uncover your weaknesses. The questions which you will be prepared for will be targeted specifically to the program you will be interviewing with.
