COMLEX Live On-Site

Our COMLEX step one program is designed to enlighten, encourage, and empower each student that attends. During your program, we will review all of the basic medical sciences for you and show you how to apply that information to endless clinical situations.

We begin each day by doing a few randomly chosen USMLE or COMLEX questions so that we are helping each student develop excellent test taking skills. The classes are taught in a very interactive manner. This means that students are encouraged to ask questions; and students are asked of every student. Therefore, learning is not simply passive.

Each day, each topic is designed to teach one large concept as well as several small ones. This makes large amounts of information much more manageable. We drill students on high yield clues both during class and in drill sessions held in the evenings. Finally, each student then receives one-on-one sessions weekly to help each student develop the self-confidence and accuracy required to perform well on the exams. Most of these sessions will be done with another D.O. physician. These same physicians will also be conducting weekly OMM drills to assist you with that aspect of your learning.

Our outstanding staff of tutors is made up of former graduates of the PASS Program, who have attended the PASS Program and performed very well on their exams, now seeking the opportunity to share that success with you. We are ALL committed to your success! And all of us will do all that we can to help you achieve academic excellence. We believe in you!
