How to Take USMLE®️ Step 1 Webinar Series
When you're seeking out trustworthy guides on how to take the USMLE®️ Step 1 exam, there are certainly plenty of resources out there to refer to. Across the sprawl you'll find articles, study plans, and textbooks that all serve their purpose well enough. But, there's an argument to be made for what many consider the most reliable source out there: the first-hand experience of those who have taken the exam before you.
We at AMBOSS know that your peers--the students and now-physicians who have already taken Step 1-- can offer great guidance in the form of study tips, exam tricks, and general wisdom. That’s why we’ve put together a new three-part webinar series, How to Take USMLE® Step 1, which kicked off on October 30th and is running until December 3, 2019.
Throughout How to Take USMLE® Step 1, you'll get to take part in honest and informative conversations about a variety of Step 1-related experiences. Students and physicians talk about how they approached their studies, what it was like to take the exam, and how their scores affected their careers later on. Here’s a quick overview of what you can look forward to:
In Conversation: Taking USMLE® Step 1
AMBOSS’ own Dr. Sean Robert Huff and Andrew Luo, an MD/MBA student visiting us from Penn State, reflect on their own Step 1 strategies and how you can adapt them yourself. Get answers to your most burning questions, like:
- What’s a golden test-taking rule for taking the USMLE® Step 1 exam?
- What happens if my score isn’t as high as I wanted?
- What’s the hardest part about preparing for the USMLE® Step 1 exam?
- If you could go back in time, what would you have done differently?
They also offer advice on how to maintain mindfulness throughout medical school and how to balance course requirements with exam expectations. In Conversation: Taking USMLE® Step 1 aired back on October 30th, but it’s still available to watch anytime you’d like over at our YouTube channel.

Ever wonder who's writing those Step 1 questions and what their end-goal is?

Plus, you'll get insights on how understanding those behind-the-scenes mechanisms can help you better tackle Step 1 on exam day .
