KISSPharm lectures are amazing. All of the pharmacology that Shan covers during his lectures, is really high yield. Almost all of the pharmacology questions, were very similar to what Shan teaches in his lectures. If you really want to master pharmacology for Usmle Step 1, I recommend – watch the KISSPharm series lectures.
As a second year medical student that hasn’t done pharmacology yet, KISSPharm came to my school and I was sold instantly! I learned so much in the first 10 minutes I knew this was the way to learn pharmacology….for life. I decided to do the two day live lecture with Shan. I learned so much AND retained it, it’s helped me in school already. I can’t wait to take pharmacology. With KISSPharm it’ll be a breeze!
I scored a 230! I was scoring in the 215-220 range consistently, but I was having a hard time raising my score any higher. After dedicating an hour a day to Shan’s pharm drills, I was up in the 230-235 range. My goal was a 230 and I know that would have been very difficult without Shan’s help! In one month of drills my score came up 10 points!!
I highly recommend his drills even if you know your pharm because it speeds up the time you spend on pharm questions and allows more time to be spent on more difficult questions on the step. It is also a great way to take a “break” from studying because Shan is very funny and his humor helps you remember little details about drugs that can come in handy when answering questions.
Thank you Shan and KISSPharm!
I scored a 224! When I came to PASS, I had been out of my basic sciences for about 3 years. I was very rusty with my pharmacology, and I was hoping that Shan’s drills would help me remember the pharm I had already learned. What I didn’t count on was that Shan would be teaching me new material above and beyond which I had learned in a US medical school. On Step 1, I scored a 224, and I did exceptionally well on the pharm section. The PASS Program and Shan’s sessions contributed significantly to my performance. Moreover, in my rotations, I am discovering I actually know the medications well. I’m able to pull together very good Assessment and Plans….again, thanks to the PASS program and Shan’s drills.I would honestly recommend to every medical student to attend the PASS Program and to participate in Shan’s pharm drills.
I’ve thanked you personally, and through various emails along way, but Shan – thanks again. I appreciate your efforts.
I came to the PASS program for the 4 week class hoping not just to pass the Step exam afterwards, but to organize and improve my knowledge and to solidify fundamental basics for the rest of my career. The program did just that for me.
In regard to pharmacology specifically, what really worked for me at the PASS program, were Shan’s pharmacology sessions. Shan’s daily pharmsessions were an adjunct to the PASS curriculum and were not mandatory, but one of my friends who attended these before me swore by them and mentioned that his pharm scores started out very low, but were near perfect after 4 weeks of Shan’s sessions without any extra self/home studying. To be honest, I was skeptical: Pharmacology is difficult and there is absolutely no easy way of going about it without very hard work and a solid time investment, and time is in very short supply when it comes to Step exam studies. But then I attended one of these pharm sessions and watched my friend answer all of the drill questions correctly and without thinking over 4 seconds per each question. Needless to say, I wanted to be able to do that too. Since then, I’ve attended all of Shan’s sessions for 4 weeks (5 days a week). I just sat though the sessions without pen, paper, or notes, and listened as well as answered oral questions. Some of the sessions on subjects I was especially weak on, I recorded on my cell phone and listened over again while working out at the local gym afterwards. Other than that, I did not put in any extra time. To my own surprise, after just 2 weeks I’ve learned more pharmacology that I could ever imagine, and after 4 weeks I’ve gained new confidence in it. I started answering questions like my friend did! My feeling about step1 and step 2 pharm questions went from “oh crap” to “bring it on” and I haven’t had any issues with pharmacology in my Step 1 exam afterwards and now feel confident about my knowledge for the upcoming clerkships and Step 2
Thank you Shan
