About the High-Yield Summer Crash Course

You’ve done it! After a year of hard work and dedication, you’ve conquered M1. Now it’s time for a well-deserved break — the summer is yours for the taking. You have every option ahead of you, from vacations to staycations.

If getting a head start on M2 is the way you want to go, we’ve got your back. The High-Yield Summer Crash Course is a free and lightweight guided review of 20 high-yield Step 1 topics, hand-picked by AMBOSS physicians and designed with the new Step 1 pass/fail scoring in mind. It’s a study plan that bridges M1 and M2, and takes just under a month, leaving plenty of time to kick back until the new semester rolls in.

How the course is structured:
Monday through Friday
: Receive one high-yield Step 1 article to review, plus a handful of Qbank questions related to that topic, each day.
Saturday: Review and reinforce what you learned with a round-up of the week’s articles.
Sunday: Take the day off to let that knowledge sink in and enjoy the summer-sun goodness.

The High-Yield Summer Crash Course takes place from June 20 -July 15, 2022. If you missed the sign-up deadline, you can go through the content of the course, at your own pace, by clicking here. You need a paid AMBOSS account to access this course outside the sign-up deadline.
