Beyond Step 1

Because Step 1 is only the beginning:

One of the most common questions we get from Boards & Beyond alumni after they pass Step 1 is ‘What resources should I use for Step 2 & 3 and my clinical rotations?’ While Dr. Ryan is working on videos for the next stage, he has also collaborated with Dr. Lorinsky and Dr. Majid to bring you the new White Coat Companion.

Study Smarter™ for Core Clerkships, Step 2CK, and Step 3:

White Coat Companion is a spiral-bound book small enough to carry wherever you go, but broad enough in scope to use as a foundation and one-stop reference throughout your core clerkships and review for Step 2 CK and Step 3.

Dr. Lorinsky, Dr. Majid, and Dr. Ryan have designed it to be the one resource you come back to again and again. You will still use specialized reference books and videos to go in-depth as you cover each area of practice, but now you can keep the essentials with you all the time!
