As a medical student, you barely have enough time for restroom breaks, never mind wasting a single precious minute on inefficient prep tactics for the USMLE Step 1 exam. And yet, you’re probably wasting up to 50% of your study time this way!

Halt crappy study techniques in their tracks with Brainscape's USMLE flashcard engine, which leverages cognitive science to help you learn faster and remember the content for longer!

We’ve partnered with MDVersity to ensure that our adaptive, digital flashcards comprehensively cover the curriculum you need to know to ace the exam.

Score a 260 on USMLE Step 1

Brainscape uses something called Confidence-Based Repetition (CBR), which is essentially the repeating of concepts at a rate that is entirely tailored to how well you know those concepts. By showing you the concepts you find more difficult more often, and those you find easier less often, Brainscape is able to optimize your study time, so that you focus on your weaknesses and never waste a minute unnecessarily reviewing stuff you already know well.

And it works: millions of top students around the world have used Brainscape's system to ace hundreds of high stakes exams, including the USMLE.

You can easily study these USMLE flashcards online or in Brainscape's app for iPhone or Android. They’re the perfect tool to get quality, ultra-efficient studying done, whether you’re sneaking bite-sized study sessions into small breaks throughout your day or investing some serious time to mastering the facts.

The most comprehensive set of USMLE Step 1 flashcards

So where did this massive collection of content come from?

Brainscape's partner, MDVersity, has put together a panel of top medical students to create over 10,000 flashcards for precisely the topics that they feel is most important to score well in the USMLE Step 1 exam. These flashcards were then validated, refined, categorized, and supplemented by high-quality images using a"crowd-sourced" effort by top medical professors, tutors, and former exam writers.

The result of this massive collaboration is the most COMPREHENSIVE, well-organized, convenient, and effective collection of USMLE Step 1 flashcards available anywhere.

And, as a learning platform ourselves, Brainscape encourages our users to continually submit feedback that will help us to continuously refine the product going forward. Flashcards are updated in"real-time" so you are always using the best version of the product.

Brainscape’s flashcards app helps you learn faster

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our"secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of USMLE Step 1 content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.

With Brainscape USMLE Step 1, you get:

  • Nearly 10,000 flashcards neatly divided into Units and Decks -- including hundreds of flashcards with high-quality medical images.
