Yes. However, we definitely recommend attending at the start date of the program. If you need to start off-cycle, we recommend starting either the second or third week of the program. If you do start off-cycle, you will miss a week or more of lectures due to our course schedule. However, you will have video access to the material that you missed.

Students will be given 2 NBME exams. The first NBME is on the first day of class. The instructions for the second NBME will be given with the first NBME exam.

Yes. The only difference is that during the Live Lecture Program, Dr. Francis, or our other instructors, will sometimes go more into detail on that topic.
Each video time differs. There are over 100 hours of videos.
The OnDemand program is a set of pre-recorded videos of Dr. Francis, whereas the live onsite lecture program has both Dr. Francis and our other instructors in person. Our live online program is the same class lecture our onsite students are receiving but on our online platform.
We are currently offering a 5 week option for our live online program. With all of our live online options, you will receive a physical copy of the book, access to morning questions, be able to ask online instructors questions during lectures, and access to our Quizlet class. You will also be able to access pre-recorded lectures for up to 3 months. You can also purchase additional tutoring and NBME consultations with all of our live online options.
We are currently offering a monthly subscription for our OnDemand program. With our OnDemand option, you will receive a PDF copy of the book and access to our Quizlet class. You can also purchase one-on-one tutoring and NBME consultations with your OnDemand subscription. Students will also have the option of purchasing a live online course at a discounted price with their subscription.
Our Live Online Programs for Step 1 and Step 2 will run throughout the year scheduled with the start dates of our Live Onsite Programs. You also have the ability to start off-cycle if needed.
