has launched a new feature with the addition of Clinical Prep
. What Clinical Prep does is help to bridge the gap between course work and
actual patient care experiences by providing access to common clinical questions.
"Clinical Prep offers more than 650 core topics essential for medical students. Within these 650+ core topics, students will find
over 50,000 questions."
The questions and answer choices are written; as well as reviewed, and updated; several times a month by specialists who work in clinical settings.
Clinical Prep supports learning in four key ways:
- It provides a warm up for your brain before setting out on clinical rotations.
- It helps students become familiar with clinical workflow and issues surrounding each disease.
- Its topics and questions serve as a point-of-care tool in the wards.
- Clinical Prep’s specialty/topic lists align with the USMLE Step 2 content outline and are the same topics as those found in "First Aid for the USMLE Step 2 CK". Which means that diseases included in this feature are likely to appear on the Step 2!
