Student Affairs

USMLE Preparation

Student Affairs coordinates a comprehensive USMLE – Step 1 review course for the benefit of all interested students.  This review course, which is free-of-charge, is open only to students currently enrolled at UT Health Science Center at San Antonio. The course is offered in the spring semester. 

Student Affairs  provides a variety of support to students preparing for the boards including:

  • STEP I informational workshops
  • Individual consults with each second year during which the student decides on a study approach, considers available study materials, and creates a tentative study schedule
  • On-going sharing of board-related information via e-mail and other forms of communications
  • Assisting students in their clinical science years with STEP II preparation on an as-need basis
  • Helping those who must retake either STEP I or II.

Special support is given to those who have had academic difficulty and/or do not pass the exam on the first attempt. Current USMLE review materials are available for circulation from the Academic Development library.
