In an effort to assist students in improving their performance on the NBME Pre-qualifying examination, the school has instituted a USMLE Counseling Service program. The Counseling Service is provided by the counselors who have passed the USMLE Step 1 and USMLE Step 2 and is supervised by the Dean of Clinical Sciences. All students who were unsuccessful in passing the Basic Science Comprehensive Exam after two attempts are going to automatically be enrolled into this service. Once enrolled into the service the school will charge the student a nominal fee of $225 per month until the student has successfully passed the USMLE Step 1. Students who do successfully pass the USMLE Step 1 will receive a 100% refund for any Counseling fees incurred.
