USMLE Step 2 Exam Review Course
Step 2 CK - WOLFPACC Overview
Our Step 2 course enables you to master difficult clinical situations and still remain confident in your management approach. Many students in preparation for Step 2 feel the key to mastering the exam is through algorithms of management. This could not be further from the truth and would be a dangerous interpretation of how to prepare for the board exams. Students are also taught concepts, retention techniques, clinical thinking, and not rote memorization. We provide everything a student needs to succeed and pass the USMLE Step 2 with high scores.
In order to direct the correct test to rule-in or rule-out a disease, you must first derive a set of differentials. These differentials are a derivative from your basic science understanding. Here a WOLFPACC we ensure you have a concrete understanding of the POWER 5 approach and how it applies to the clinical world. This will ensure correct management decisions are made in each and every case.
The live lecture is taught in a very interactive manner. This means that students are inspired to openly ask questions. This removes the repetitive nature of most programs and their passive learning style.
