CONSEQUENCES OF NEW PASS/FAIL GRADING

Whether delivered as In Person or Live Online, all WOLFPACC USMLE prep programs are designed around four-week, live-lecture Medical Boards Review courses that are supplemented by intensive tutoring sessions.  Moreover, our one-on-one approach is facilitated by an MD or DO who has been through the WOLFPACC program.

Medical students can now be enrolled in classroom training without ever leaving their home. Given the current Covid 19 concerns, our online USMLE/COMLEX prep courses let you enjoy the same amazing lectures presented by the staff of WOLFPACC. Since our online courses are delivered open mic, you can stop the instructor anytime you need material clarified. Conversely, the program works in reverse where you will be called upon by the instructor from time to time.

“As I tell students all the time, it is not necessary to know everything. But there are some things that you have to know in order to figure out everything else,” says Dr. Wolf. “Time is a medical student’s most precious commodity. Therefore, it is imperative that he or she is taught how to decide what information is actually important, and what information can be derived.”

Although well-intentioned, changing USMLE Step 1 to pass/fail may prove to have confusing consequences for medical students both at home and internationally. As for Step 1, the content that is tested is the scientific foundations of medicine so there is still a lot of work to be done on the student’s part. Any preconceived notion that a USMLE pass/ fail exam will be easier is false and could lead to a higher fail rate among students who are ill prepared. In addition, students run the risk of depleting the number of attempts allowed, which have been reduced from six opportunities to pass the exam to only four attempts.

There is also some trickle-down effect to be considered as well. Under the new guidelines, if a student receives a passing score on the Step 1 exam, they will not receive content-based feedback on their test performance. This could lead to a tendency among students to misinterpret their passing grade as having a stronger baseline and foundation for passing USMLE Step 2 CK, which may result in a higher failure rate. Where Step 1 is just one of three required USMLE licensure exams, Step 2 (CK) and Step 3 will continue to be evaluated with a three-digit numerical score, so Step 2 scores could be relied on more heavily for future applications for residency.

What does all of this mean in the end? Medical students should prepare for the Step 1 like their professional lives depend on it. After all, the amount of material covered by the exam has not changed, at all. So, the importance of participating in a USMLE Pass/Fail prep review course is even greater for marginal students or those who do not test well. Moreover, students will now need to evaluate and consider ways to improve their three-digit Step 2 and Step 3 scores, such as attending WOLFPACC’s series of review courses that may help them stand out from others. After all, nothing about Step 1 pass/fail scoring changes the fact that becoming a good doctor starts with the knowledge and application of the basic sciences.

Through our unique approach, WOLFPACC’s USMLE and COMLEX preparation courses do not rely on a medical student’s short-term memory and skills at memorization. Instead, Dr. Wolf and his staff teach you how to think your way through each question and identify the correct answer. By utilizing proven concepts to integrate your knowledge of basic sciences, WOLFPACC helps medical students to put a clinical understanding to the task at hand and to enjoy a successful medical career. 

Dr. Hans Wolf saw the need for developing USMLE preparation courses that focused on the common links between organ systems, so medical students become physicians with a better understanding of the whole patient rather than a single presenting sign or symptom. By integrating the five main organ systems through physiology, WOLFPACC’s “Power 5” methodology provides an innovative way for students to prepare for taking the USMLE or COMLEX licensing exams.

Dr. Wolf strongly believes in your dream of becoming a confident clinical physician and empowers you with the information, tools, and skills to achieve much more than a pass/fail grade on Step 1 of the USMLE. By helping you master the concepts of practicing medicine rather than just memorizing bits and pieces of the basic sciences, our staff looks forward to making you our next success story. Connect with us now and start focusing on the “how and why” of practicing medicine.

USMLE

Brief intro about USMLE PREP REVIEW

USMLE Step 1 examination has over 300 multiple-choice test items. The test day is divided into seven sixty-minute blocks and administered in one eight-hour testing session.  During the defined time to complete the items in each Step 1 block, you may answer the questions in any order, then review your responses, and change answers as needed. After you exit a given block, or once time expires, you can no longer review test items or change answers.

WOLFPACC’s POWER 5 approach is designed to teach a major system and then correlate it to the previous one presented. Applying this methodology takes the memorization out of medicine. Our staff shows you how all the organs are connected through physiology.  As you complete each week of the program, you will gain important knowledge as you learn how to apply it. Our methodology allows you to gain total command of the material presented and students truly enjoy this unique learning experience.

Since live lectures are taught in a very interactive manner, it means students are inspired to connect by openly asking questions and being involved in discussions. Our approach removes the repetitive nature of most prep programs by replacing a passive learning style with active participation.  Students are also taught concepts, retention techniques, and elements of clinical thinking, rather than memorization.

Real Results

I had such a positive experience at WOLFPACC. I have wanted for years to see all the information I have been exposed to in my medical education presented in a cohesive way that would allow me to understand it rather than just simply memorize it.. Dr. Wolf was easily the best teacher I have had throughout my years in medical training, and thanks to him I now understand core physiological principles that will allow me to reason through problems. Best of all, I am excited about my education now! Thanks so much to WOLFPACC and all the staff for a stellar program and experience!
D.K. LMU
I tried several other review courses and ended up failing my Step 1 twice. I decided to try WOLFPACC and if I couldn’t make it with them, I planned on quitting. At WOLFPACC, I was able to understand why things worked the way they did instead of memorizing a bunch of random facts. Thanks to Dr. Wolf’s teaching style and the tutors’ 1-on-1 attention, I passed not only Step 1 but also Step 2! I am now working on Step 3! WOLFPACC is the reason I continued medical school and became a doctor.
E. R. Steps 1
I tried 2 other review courses which turned out to be a waste of time and money. I decided to try Wolfpacc because of the small class size and the access to the staff & Dr. Wolf. I was hopeful with the first week and by the second week I had my confidence back. Dr. Wolf’s methodology really clicked for me, and he really nailed it when it came to my hang-ups and the staff was always patient & kind. Long story short, I am now on to Step 2!
M. E. Level 1: LMU
I really appreciate all the support and care the staff and fellow students at WOLFPACC gave me throughout the stay. I recently found out my score for the USMLE Step 1. I’m pleased to report that I have passed with a 230! I will look forward to seeing you all for Step 2!

FAQ’s

Can I interact with the instructor during the live on-line four week course?

Currently you are able to, as it is an open mic presentation. If the background noise from students in attendance becomes too distracting, microphones will be disabled. Then for one hour following each lecture, the instructor will have an open mic session for students on-line to ask questions on the material presented that day.

Can I start off-cycle, or do I have to wait until the next month?

We highly recommend that all students start a program on their designated start date. However, we will accept students off-cycle but only when there is a USMLE or COMLEX training spot available and you are signing up for an 8 week session.

If you are registering for the 4 week on-line program, you are permitted to start off cycle.

Can I take the 8 week "guarantee" course on-line?

The on-line program is only offered for the four week enrollment.

Do you offer different program lengths other than the 4-weeek and 8-week programs?

Yes, we also offer a six week and a 4 month option. Call for details.

Does the 4-wk program cover the same information as the 8-wk program?

Yes. The difference with the 8-week program, it has a stronger structure on daily tutoring and application of the material learned.

How do I schedule my C.S. Course?

How many NBME/COMSAE exams are given with the 4-wk vs the 8-wk program?

Students will be given 2 NBME/COMSAE exams. The first NBME/COMSAE exam is on the first day of class. You will be advised by Dr. Wolf on which form to take for your second NBME/COMSAE. The second NBME/COMSAE is normally taken at the end of the fourth or eight-week program.

How may tutoring sessions will I receive with the program?

A 4-wk program comes with 3 tutoring sessions per week, meaning you will receive 12 total tutoring sessions.

An 8-wk program comes with 5 tutoring sessions per week, meaning you will receive 40 total tutoring sessions.

I am a Pre-med student, are there courses for me?

Yes, we offer a pre-med coures for students who have either been accepted to med school or are in their 1st or 2nd yr. of med. school. A softer approach is taken to prepare students for what they will be facing during the med school years. Students who take this course are ahead of their peers because they have learned good study techniques, time management, note taking skills & how to handle the type of board questions they will eventually face. Tutoring is a critical component. The books we provide will be good for all your Steps.

I have failed my exam, can your program help me?

Yes, we can! We recommend that students who have had a failed attempt, attend our Live Lecture Program. Our one-on-one tutoring will also help us determine what underlying weakness you may have.

Is there a discount off the 4-week or 8-week program?

Unfortunately, both programs are already at a discounted price.

Is there an opportunity to extend after program has ended if needed?

Yes. Dr Wolf will make recommendations based off your progress during the program. An individualized study plan will be made and if an extension is needed, a recommendation will be made at that time.

What documents do you provide for international students that intend to attend?

We do not provide any documents for a Visa other than a Border Letter. Border Letters are provided only upon payment for the program. For proper documentation for the program, we advise that you consult your local consulate.

What does your C.S. Course include?

Our C.S. course is a 2 day course and includes 1 day of lecture and practice, and 1 day of case practice with standardized patients.

What Holidays is the WOLFPACC center closed?

The WOLFPACC center is only closed on New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

What is the 8-week Guarantee?

The 8-week Guarantee is if you do not pass your exam after attending the program you are eligible to return to the program tuition-free for eight weeks. Housing will still be your responsibility.

Will I have time to study and practice USMLE sample questions?

The WOLFPACC schedule was designed so that every student has ample time to study, practice questions, exercise and get an appropriate amount of rest. Since class ends around 4:00 pm each day, every student should have more than adequate time to accomplish all of their obligations. So, there should be no excuses as to not having enough time to finish your tasks as long as you remember that the key to your success lies in being well organized.

Will your program benefit me if I am studying for the COMLEX exam?

Yes! Our program is the only review program to be integrated into the curriculum of an osteopathic medical school. We also have an osteopathic staff to assist you on the OMM material.
