Getting Started

Soon after purchase (should you choose to activate immediately) you will receive your reading material and you will be emailed instructions to create your new account, giving you access to the NMR Question Bank and all of the online video lectures. You will also receive a short questionnaire to fill out, giving us some background info about yourself, your test history, the areas you think you’re struggling with, and any relevant info we can use to match you with the most effective personal coach.

If you haven’t taken the NBME-CBSSA or USMLE before, or don’t have access to your scores, you will take a 4 hour pretest. This will assess your strongest and weakest areas, and give us guidance as to where we might begin your review.

After we receive your completed questionnaire, previous scores, and/or pretest, we will review them and then match you with your private coach, who will guide all of your studies from that point onward.

Meet-and-Greet and Designing the Review

Your coach will review your questionnaire and confirm a time that works for both of you to have your 1-on-1 meet-and-greet via Webinar.

The purpose of this meeting is to get to know each other, go over the answers from your questionnaire, and create a personal relationship. You can share with your coach anything that you think might create a more meaningful experience and help you succeed.

The two of you will design a Study Plan together. This will be based on your day-to-day schedule and preferred exam date. We know medical students already have a lot on their plates, our goal is not to overload you with material, but rather to create a workable study plan that you can stick to.

Study Plan and Assignments

Based on your agreed upon study plan, your coach will create personalized assignments for you. Each assignment will have a flexible due date to ensure you progress through the program and are fully prepared come exam day. The assignments can include all or some of the following:

  • Specific lecture videos to watch
  • Specific questions or exams to work on in the NMR Question Bank
  • Specific pages to read from our books
  • Customized case scenarios to solve
  • Any other reading material or supplements as designated by your coach

After you complete an assignment, your coach will review your performance before moving you on to the next assignment.

Keeping You on Track

Your coach will review your completed assignments and provide you with feedback. Periodically you will meet with your coach for a performance review via Webinar, phone, or email. At these meetings you can go over any items that you think you struggled with and get clarification on specific topics.

Based on your performance you will both decide what the next step is. Your coach may decide to have you delve further into a difficult subject area, or to have you move on. If you are still struggling with a certain area, your coach will provide you with a tutor.

Tutoring Sessions

If you are stuck and need more intricate instruction on a specific subject area, your coach or an assigned tutor specializing in that subject area will meet with you via Webinar for a tutoring session.

After these sessions your coach may provide you with additional assignments to test your knowledge before moving on in the study plan.

Your Coach is Here for You — Day or Night

Studying for your exam is a stressful process, and we want to remove as much worry as possible from your life. You can contact your coach with questions anytime. You can e-mail, schedule a Webinar, or even text if you need a quick response.

Final Assessment

Near the end of your service, or a few weeks before your exam date, you will take a post-test to re-assess your readiness for your exam. Your coach will use this post-test to advise you on certain areas to focus on in the final weeks. Your success if our success, and we want you to feel 100% prepared for your exam.

What Will it Take to Achieve Your Goals?

The goal of the coaching plan is to allow our clientele to pass their exams with their personal best scores on their first attempts after starting their study plan. Some individuals can easily attain their goal by only studying one or just a few subjects and in less than 30 days, and others may require completion of several more subjects and extended preparation for up to one year. Every student is different, and we’re ready to work with you no matter your specific needs. What we can assure you is that during this entire process we will stand by you from start to finish.

Who Has the Most to Gain from Our Coaching Plans?

  • Students who have already taken a one-size-fits-all plan and have failed their exam
  • Students who have been placed on academic probation
  • Students who had to take their MCAT exam more than once before being admitted to their medical school
  • Students who believe that they do well academically but perform poorly on the standardized tests
  • Students who need a structured, 1-on-1 review
  • Students who need someone to hold them accountable and keep them motivated while studying

Further Advice

Don’t try to cram. Your coach and tutors are valuable assets, but they have to prepare new materials and rest sometimes, too. For best results make sure to stick to the agreed upon study plan as closely as possible and inform your coach of any expected hiccups ahead of time. If you choose to skip assignments or wait until the final weeks before your exam before asking for help, your coach may not have enough time to get through all of your weak areas.

Match your review to your current curriculum. One great feature of our Coach Pack service is that it can be customized to follow along with your medical school courses and exams. If you have an upcoming test you think you might struggle on, your coach is there to get you through it.

Start with your most difficult areas and go from there. Your coaching plan can focus on a few subject areas you think you need a lot of help with, or it can be completely comprehensive. You can even decide the order of subject areas to be covered or let your coach decide for you. Further, the study plan is completely customizable and scheduled around what you have time for. Finish studying in one month or one year, it’s up to you!

See What Our Students Are Saying

“Motivation and direction was something I clearly was lacking after not passing CK the first time. Under the direction of Dr. E, I was able to regain the motivation to studying by the way he directed me to tackle subjects of importance. Even after finishing the course, I maintained a similar direction to which Dr. E had set for myself, going through each subject as we did during the course. The result was a 26 score jump on CK, which I was quite proud of.”

Gauruv B., MD

“Dr. Eftekar is such a kind-hearted and genuine teacher! I really felt he put in all his effort and expertise into making a schedule for me that would help me reach success. Even when my stress was high, he was patient and optimistic with me every step of the way. His team really helped me with any areas I had trouble in, and made sure I pushed myself with the resources I had on hand to the best of my ability. I definitely recommend Northwestern!”

Hera J.

“This course was exactly what I needed for my Comlex Level 2 CE preparation. If you are the type of person who needs a structured study schedule and someone to hold you accountable for this schedule, this is the perfect course for you. Dr.E creates a customized schedule for each student and tailors this schedule according to each students needs. He works with his students every step of the way and is genuinely interested in his students success. I was devastated after failing my Comlex level 2 CE the first time and this was exactly what I needed to bolster me up. The faculty worked with me every step of the way and addressed all my concerns. I was able to achieve a 162 point score increase in four weeks with the help of this course. I could not be more pleased, and highly recommend Northwestern Medical Review.”

Our Simple Pricing Structure

Our Coach Pack pricing is simple and straightforward. We’ve worked to make a comprehensive review package that includes everything you need to get over your exam hurdles: from a complete set of study materials, to face-to-face tutoring, to mentor guidance and support.

We wanted the package to be as cost-effective as possible for our students while ensuring it could live up to their needs and expectations. After helping hundreds of students score higher on their exams, we’ve found that vast majority of students (over 90% of them) only need up to 10 hours of face-to-face tutoring (alongside the customized study plan, and unlimited phone, email, or text message exchanges with their coach) to fully prepare for their exam.

This is why we’ve priced our Coach Pack to only include 10 hours of face-to-face time to start, so that the majority of students who will only need 10 hours don’t have to pay for tutoring hours they won’t need, and in those rare instances more hours can be added later on as needed. At first glance 10 hours may not seem like much, but don’t forget that this is only the number of face-to-face tutoring hours, and the Coach Pack is much more than just the formal tutoring. Your coach will be putting in hours every day designing and reviewing your customized assignments, along with answering any questions you have in detail via email, phone, or text. Your coach is your asset and mentor and will help bring out the best student in you.

One price gets you everything you need, and if you happy to need a little more face-to-face tutoring time, you can always add-on at a fair price.

Not Sure if the Coach Pack is Right for You?

We want to make sure you’re 100% satisfied with our services. You may cancel your enrollment within 24 hours for a full refund. Thereafter, and due to the complex 1-on-1 nature of the course, we honor partial refunds as follows:

Within the first 48 hours an $80 cancellation fee is applicable. Within the first 4 days, an additional $250 set-up fee that includes pre-program evaluation, questionnaire analysis, diagnostic pretesting, and original program design is applicable. Thereafter, and for the next 10 days (thus within 14 days of initial enrollment), 5% of the remaining total fee will be deducted daily. After that (14 days after enrollment), no refund is available. Please note that once textbooks have been shipped and received, their $150 cost is nonrefundable as well.
