Memorization is the enemy

USMLE scores depend on one thing:

Application of key concepts.

That's why every flashcard we craft fosters the mastery behind impressive Boards scores.

Yousmlers Stand Out to Top Residencies

Before Yousmle:

"Honored ZERO classes MS1 and MS2 year, scored a 226 on Step 1"

After Yousmle:

"Honored 4 clerkships, scored a 260 on Step 2"

"Currently in the middle of interview season, and I have received invites from ~20 programs that include many top tier schools (Harvard, Columbia, Cleveland Clinic, University of Washington, Mayo, Yale, NYU, Dartmouth) and some of the most competitive transitional years (University of Hawaii, Scripps Mercy)."

Melody - Step 2 Yousmler

Before Yousmle:

"I scored a 168 on Step 1 and went into panic mode"

After Yousmle:

"Honors in 5 clerkships , 95th percentile on IM, Peds and Neurology shelf exams and 261 on Step 2 CK"

"By sticking with the two-fold approach of building foundational knowledge and mastering interpretation, I not only performed well on the USMLEs, but also became a valuable team member actively involved in patient care."

Do the cards cover all subjects?

What is the best way to use this deck?

Yes! There are over 1100+ cards (and counting), and have been conveniently tagged by subject, meaning that if you're reviewing internal medicine, you can review only the "medicine" cards without having to study the others. There are also tags for pediatrics, ob-gyn, psychiatry, general surgery, the same breakdown for the USMLE Step 2 CK and the various shelf exams. That said, this deck was not created to be "all-inclusive in my experience decks/services attempting this overwhelm medical students by giving them 20,000+ fact stop cram into their heads. Instead, I've chosen only the highest-yield facts and explanations I've used with students, which I continue to update as I tutor more and more people.

The cards fit any timeline to efficiently improve your score in the less time. If you have > 2 months before your exam, I would recommend doing the entire deck prior to doing a question bank. If you have only a couple weeks, I'd recommend doing QBank questions first, then searching the deck for cards pertaining to the topics you missed, saving you the time of searching for explanations/integrations.

When should I get the deck?

How many cards are in the deck?

Spaced repetition lets you remember anything forever - and so it’s best to start as early as possible. All of the cards are divided by subject, meaning that even if you're in your 1st year, you can supplement your class learning by studying all of the "cardio," "renal," or other subjects, while saving the other subjects for later. Or if you're closer to your exam, you can study all of the cards to efficiently improve your score!

At the time of this writing, there were 1100+ cards in the deck. I still tutor a great deal, and with every student, I help them craft expert, customized Anki cards to help them to integrate and apply their knowledge. I use the best of these cards to constantly update the Anki deck, and will release updates in the future.

Can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, given the nature of digital sales, all sales are final. To preview the deck, you can download sample cards by signing up here!

Can I study the cards by organ system?

Yes! Many students prefer to study by organ system, either during their classes, or during their dedicated Step 1 study period. The cards are divided by organ system so you can beef up your knowledge in cardiology, renal, stats, biochemistry, or any other subject!

Who is this deck intended for?

The cards accommodate medical students at all stages of training, from those in their 1st year, to someone a week before their exam. Divided into individual subjects like cardiology, renal, respiratory, biochemistry, etc., you can study individual subjects along with your classes. Because there is a focus on high-yield concepts and facts, even someone with a week or two could cover the majority of their weak areas to boost their score in less time.
