Use AMBOSS as a supplemental resource for Step 1 as we are releasing our content by pairing the AMBOSS Learning Cards with the interactive Qbank for instant review and high impact learning.  Delve into the etiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, diagnostics, treatments, prognosis, complications and prevention of disorders and diseases within our extensive clinical knowledge library to succeed on your Step 1 exam.  

AMBOSS Interactive Images

Within our interactive clinical knowledge library, any image containing a plus (+) sign links to a quiz. When quiz mode is activated, you can gain an even deeper understanding on a wide range of clinical topics and further test your knowledge.

AMBOSS SmartZoom

Many AMBOSS Learning Cards have histological slides with a SmartZoom feature that allows you to dive more deeply and more clearly into pathological findings. Get to the nuclei level and access our physician-appointed landmarks, indicated by red pins and blue overlays, to reveal exactly what you need to see in H&E slides.

AMBOSS Visual Resources + Real Clinical Data

Learn to interpret results with real clinical data. Access thousands of charts, images and videos that illustrate key diagnostic points to gain expertise on clinical examination procedures and diverse medical topics. Delve into one of our many educational videos, covering diverse topics, such as surgeries and examinations or toggle on overlays and illustrations to highlight pathologies and to pinpoint exactly what you need to see. 

AMBOSS Synchronized Learning

Crosslinked content lets you synchronize your learning all in one place. Continuously updated clinical content with a wide range of topics are linked with every question. Go deep or high-yield, and explore overlays in case-based results, from X-rays to EKGs.
