    6 Things To Look for in an Online Pediatrics Board Review Course

    When you're looking at purchasing an online Pediatrics Review Course, you're most likely preparing for a high-stakes exam. So the course material will need to be a review on what you already know, help you to find your knowledge gaps, and streamline your study process to save you time before your exam. But what should you look for to help you do that?  Here's our tips for picking the perfect course.

    The Course Should Align With the Exam Content Outline 

    Make sure the course you choose is board-focused without the "fluff"Make sure the course you choose is board-focused without the "fluff"

    Have you taken a look at the ABP content outline? If so, you know that the topics have percentages that correlate with how often you'll see them on the exam. We keep the content outline in mind when creating our course content. So, you'll notice that the longer lectures are the ones with a higher percentage on the outline, and vice versa. The course speakers present only what you need to know for the boards and practice update. There’s something reassuring about listening to highly rated Peds specialists on the topics you’ll be tested on—hearing their insights, pearls, and tips.

    A Course That Helps You Set Aside Dedicated Time To Study

    There's so much info to study, and with your busy schedule you'll want to look for a course that allows you dedicated time to study with minimal distractions.

    Pediatricians who attend our online Pediatric Board Review Course love that they’re able to set aside a few vacation days (or CME days) to get to digest the material. Our course is 6-days long and chock-full of distraction-free sessions.

    We know it’s tough to find the time for board review, so we make sure that our course helps you focus on everything that will be on your exam.

    Provides Materials to Supplement Your Course Experience

    When looking for a course, you might want to find one that provides materials that supplement the course to make sure the review you're getting really sticks. At a MedStudy Course, you'll receive 100 practice questions, a print full-color syllabus, and the raw footage from the course for an entire year.

    The lectures have live Q&As that you're able to answer to see how you compare to the other course attendees. So, you can quiz yourself throughout the course to identify your knowledge gaps. The lecturers give thorough explanations of why the correct answer is right and why the distractors are incorrect. 

    Your course studies don't have to end with the final lecture! You’ll receive access to the raw video footage of every lecture, plus two additional companion videos, to review up to 12 months after the course ends.

    Make Sure Your Course Gives You Kick-Ass Study Strategies

    To get the best review that you can, you'll want to make sure that the course you pick aligns with study strategies that are proven to make sure you remember more of what you study and review.

    When you attend a MedStudy Review Course, you'll notice that we have a segment called “Kick-Ass Brain-Hacking Techniques to Study Strong.” In this segment, MedStudy’s founder, Tony Hannaman, MD will give you some inside tips and his best advice for study practices and how to kick ass during your exam. Plus, he’ll go over exactly what you can expect going into your exam

    You'll Want a Course Where You Can Engage With Other Attendees

    You know that you'll stay engaged by answering questions during your course, but you'll also want to make sure you can interact with other course attendees. All MedStudy online course attendees can use the chat feature to communicate with each other during the course.

    We see a lot of chat during the sessions where physicians are working together in the chat to build camaraderie, cheer each other on during intense review, problem-solve together, and answer each other's questions.

    You Might Need CME and MOC From Your Review Course 

    If you're like many of the other Pediatricians looking for a Pediatrics Review Course, you might need Continuing Medical Education Credits and Maintenance of Certification Points for your employers and to stay certified. You'll probably want a review course that allows you to claim CME Credits and MOC points. We make it easy to claim 50+ CME and MOC after the course.
