What Students Are Saying

“The sessions are going really well and I really love working with Amy! The structure of my sessions, where we review high-yield information from First Aid and then do a challenge question, is great for me. The days when we review UWorld questions I have gotten wrong are also extremely helpful and informative.  I honestly wish I had started to work with her earlier! Amy is really patient and easy to follow along with and I really feel like I am understanding everything I am learning.”

B.P., Step 1 Student

“Working with Amy for the past 7 months in preparation for my Step 1 exam has been one of the most fulfilling learning experiences in my medical journey. Not once during our sessions together did Amy ever make me feel inferior or incapable. She reassured the things I did know, and made me confident enough to share my uncertainties so that I could excel. Amy has not only been a great teacher, she has also been a mentor, a friend, a cheerleader and a consoler to me when needed. There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude towards Amy and towards EMP for pairing me with her.”

N.D.L, Step 1 Student

“Amy is fantastic. She is patient and explains things in a very clear, concise manner. I especially like that she makes concrete plans according to my progress, with specific goals, and quizzes me often.”
