Peer to Peer Learning

Peer tutoring program provides an opportunity for students to enhance their learning experiences with free group and private tutoring. Tutors have demonstrated a thorough comprehension of the material and the ability to facilitate learning.

Tutoring is available for all blocks and courses and provides students:

  • Access to high yield study materials

  • Practice USMLE style questions

  • Special exam reviews

  • Step 1 & 2 active learning workshops

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions are also offered for Molecular Basis of Life and Disease (MBLD) and Cardiovascular-Hematology (CVH) blocks. SI Leaders are peer facilitators (tutors) that hold regularly scheduled review sessions. In SI, students engage in activities that reinforce content understanding through practice and application with other students. Research suggest that attending a 1 hour of SI is roughly the equivalent of studying 2.5 hours alone. In addition, national data demonstrates regular SI attendance improves a student’s final course grade.
