Statement of Need

The race for residency spots in the United States is becoming more competitive year after year. One of the major criteria that program directors have used over the years in selecting between potential candidates are USMLE exam scores. Therefore, medical students and graduates are putting more effort into preparing for the exams in all intuitive ways to achieve the highest scores possible. Wikidoc scholars have explored a new way to be well prepared for the USMLEs and that is to be able to write an board exam question. It takes higher scorers to make this kind of effort.

How Can WikiDoc Meet Those Needs?

Wikidoc scholars board review project has several goals, and some of those are:

  • Train medical students and graduates on how to be an author for a question, which requires more thought process and knowledge than merely taking the test, therefore it prepares them for higher scores on exam.
  • Provide a rich resource for medical students and graduates preparing for the boards
  • Provides opportunities for wikidoc scholars on campus to exchange knowledge, strategies and test-taking skills

How Can You Help WikiDoc Meet Those Needs?
