Step 1 Study Smarter Fest

The "Study Smarter Fest" is an annual podcast series to create step content for medical students to learn or reinforce high yield principles. The series is broken down into a number of episodes that roll out on the podcast over the spring season that cover a variety of topics. This is a great way to study on the go or while doing everyday tasks all while learning quality material for the USMLE Step 1 exam.

Health Systems Science

In collaboration with The American Medical Association

This series seeks to broaden students’ understanding of the nature of medicine, medical education, and what separates them from other human endeavors. Medicine is not a “pure science,” or a kind of “applied biology.” Rather, it is fundamentally an art that uses science. As a discipline, Health Systems Science considers those ideas and concepts which are integral to medicine as a profession but don’t fall under the domain of the clinical or basic sciences.

What are students saying about ITB?

  • Thank you for making the InsideTheBoards podcast and audio qbank. I used both while studying for the USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1. I can remember seeing specific “must know” topics on my exams that you discussed during either the podcast or the audio qbank and it certainly helped me. I will continue to use both products for 3rd year as I prepare for Step/Level2.

  • ITB podcast is the perfect adjunct to normal UFAPS during intensive study time. I put it on a speaker and listen while in the shower. Awesome podcast!

  • I am currently a second year student and I wish that I had found this last year. I thankfully stay average or above in classes, but after listening to this podcast my stress on exams has gone down and my productivity has gone up. My 30-40 minute drive time is now time that I can learn how to think and learn some pretty important topics for when dedicated study time hits!

  • Great resource for medical students. Gives you multiple angles of learning, study tips, life tips, and everything else you'll need.

  • Loving InsideTheBoards! This has been life saving for me as I have ADHD!
