Boards and Beyond

Welcome to Boards and Beyond!

Our site is home to over 400 videos for medical students. We are an on-demand video library of high quality lectures at an affordable cost - a virtual medical school curriculum used by students around the globe. We offer content in over a dozen subjects including cardiology, renal, pulmonary, biostatistics, biochemistry and more. Within each subject, we cover the full range of subtopics for USMLE Step 1 including embryology, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology. Topics within each section mirror those of First Aid for the Boards. Many students annotate in First Aid as they watch. Our videos are updated throughout the year so we cover the newest drugs, mechanisms, and science for Step 1. We also offer USMLE-style quiz questions so you can test yourself after you watch our videos. 

Each video is designed and taught by Dr. Jason Ryan, an award-winning educator with years of experience teaching students. Dr. Ryan has created videos filled with insights that will maximize your understanding. The content is clear, concise, and easy to understand - just what you need to remember all those facts for Step 1. 

Don't take our word for it. Check out some sample videos. Read the testimonials of students who have used the site. See for yourself what Boards and Beyond has to offer. 


Getting ready for the COMLEX? Or maybe the NBME CBSE? Our videos are also used by students preparing for both of these exams.
