We care about student success. We regularly invite upperclassmen, professionals and our subject area scholars to write articles that can help students succeed on their journey through medical school.

SUCCESS IN MED SCHOOL
GETTING DREAM BOARD SCORES
SECRETS FROM GRADUATES
PICMONIC & OTHER TOOLS
From classes to board exams, students say Picmonic helps them master material faster so they are less stressed and score higher.
Picmonic has been key to my study strategy throughout M1 and M2. It helped me secure at least three perfect exam scores, and I plan to use it extensively for board preparation.
Picmonic has been instrumental throughout my med school journey. I may have not been the top of my class but these bizarre picmonics have helped me remember heart murmurs, brain vasculature and more. When I don't have it I feel lost lol. I always end up coming back and hope this will help me overcome the hurdle of STEP 2 CK! Thanks picmonic I <3 you!
While it may sound like an exaggeration, I owe picmonic for the majority of my success throughout medical school. Being a very visual learner, I found that the picmonic’s unique method of quick, re-watchable, unforgettable stories stuck in my mind unlike anything else, including several other well-known resources that I tried. Not only was picmonic invaluable for both STEP 1 and 2, but it helped immensely when getting pimped by attendings on clerkships. I found that the things I had learned through picmonic were always the easiest to recall when asked questions under pressure. I could not thank picmonic any more profusely for their work and for being such a dependable, valuable resource.
