I took my Complex level 1 twice, and this was going to be my third attempt. My school has a 3-strike policy, meaning if I didn’t pass my exam, I would be dismissed from my program. I came to the pass program broken, hopeless, and frightened. With nothing to loose, I embraced everything Dr. Francis and Dr. Le-Pava taught. I embraced their methodology of approaching the material, their guidance on how to approach questions. At the end of the course, I took my exam and I received my score. I increased my score by 148 points from the first time I took the exam. Not only did Dr.Francis re-ignite my passion to study medicine, he taught me the right way to approach medicine and my patients. I left the pass program with hope, determination, and excitement because I was going to be able to get back into doing what I love. You will meet lots of different people from different walks of life, and that in itself is a very humbling experience, because all of us had one goal in mind, to practice medicine for the love of helping others. The Pass center isn’t just the pass center for me; they are my family. I was treated like family from the first day that I got there, until now. I am so thankful for you Dr. Francis and Dr. Le-Pava. Thank you for saving my career, and opening my eyes as to how medicine should be taught and practiced. I will be coming back for step 2 and step 3. See you in a couple months!
