Develop your study plan
Now that you have your CBSE results, please reach out to your lead advisor and/or the learning specialist to develop your personal study plan. They are also available to help with finding an accountability partner and with recognizing signs of burn out.
Visit Canvas for student advice
Visit the Step 1 Advice page on the Mentoring & Advising Program (MAP) Canvas page for advice from students. Remember the number one piece of advice is to do what works best for you though. Concentrate on finishing strong in your courses before your dedicated Step 1 study time. In 2017, the mean score for Step 1 at IUSM was 231. The mean score nationally was 230.
Take advantage of practice vouchers
The school has provided three opportunities for practice:
- October CBSSA voucher
- January CBSE
- February CBSSA voucher
In order to receive vouchers for additional CBSSAs, students should contact their lead advisor and provide their CBSSA scores.
