How is this course different from HyGuru’s USMLE Step 1 Pass/Fail Course?


While the NBME Top Concepts Course is a fantastic review for Step 1 pathophysiology, it’s not as comprehensive as our Step 1 Pass/Fail course. The Pass/Fail course is mapped to the USMLE Step 1 content outline and augments each organ’s pathophysiology with its physiology and pharmacology integrated with the relevant immunology and biochemistry. The Pass/Fail course is the most integrative and efficient way to master Step 1 content and prepare for the exam. See the table below for a side-by-side comparison of the two courses.
