“As leaders in providing high quality medical content and technology, we are pleased to introduce USMLE Benchmark. We spent over a year listening to medical students on their needs to drive better USMLE outcomes. USMLE Benchmark is the result of that effort – an affordable, comprehensive, easy-to-use, one stop destination for medical students,” said Eduardo Moura, Chief Product Officer, Jones & Bartlett Learning.
USMLE Step 1 is designed to assess basic scientific knowledge as it applies to the practice of medicine. USMLE Step 2 CK is intended to assess clinical knowledge and skills as it applies to the diagnosis and management of patients.
Every subscription of USMLE Benchmark includes a 7 block, timed assessment exam that simulates the style of the boards and is based on the most recent NBME blueprint. Also included in each subscription is the ability to create unlimited, custom practice tests in multiple content areas. Users can choose to take practice exams using the actual USMLE interface or USMLE Benchmark’s unique interface.
Each question in USMLE Benchmark includes detailed rationales for both the correct and incorrect answers. All items are written by experienced question writers, medical students, and residents and are meticulously reviewed for clinical accuracy by a medical advisory board consisting of licensed content experts. New questions are always being added and existing questions are regularly analyzed for efficacy.
USMLE Benchmark provides users with custom reports that pinpoint the topics that require more study, individual progress, progress compared to other users, and time spent per question.
