for NYU Long Island School of Medicine

NYU LISOM has provided the Class of 2022 and 2023 students access to the AMBOSS Library and Qbank!

Below, you’ll find important information about AMBOSS, how to use the campus license and frequently asked questions (FAQs).

How to activate your access

1.  Create an AMBOSS account, or log in if you already have an account.

2. Click on  the “Account” icon in the left dashboard panel and find the “Redeem Code” option in the left side panel.

3. You’ll see the option to “Activate Code.” Enter the code that you received from your school.

5. To verify that your access has been correctly activated, click on the “Account” icon in the left dashboard panel and view the “License status”.This expiration date will be adjusted in the coming months by AMBOSS to align with your curriculum. 

6. Start exploring! You can download the apps or browse the platform on your desktop. The Library is available to you all day, everyday. During your  Phase 1 studies, the Qbank will limit you to 50 questions per month. You can monitor your balance in the Access Overview section of your Account.

The Qbank will unlock completely when you start your Phase II studies. This setting is due to the limited availability of NBME-style questions you’ll want to review for dedicated exam prep later in your studies.
