“High quality USMLE review and clinical knowledge training with efficient and effective learner controls. And, our M3s and M4s are loving the jumpstart into case-based clinical assessment and diagnosis.”I. Khan, MD, Professor of Medicine
Higher scores. Better pass-rates.
No IT set up needs. No content maintenance.
Instant start up. Easy to use. Benefits for all.
There’s reason to delay improving your medical student training outcomes.
There’s a reason why so-called “Self-study Qbank” solutions stop short of providing real program outcome improvement.
You need more than just questions.
You need education outcome control.
We give you the best of both.
Med-Challenger provides the highest-quality USMLE Step 2CK & Step 3 question bank for medical student knowledge assessment and clerkship exams, but we also provide the most powerful suite of centralized, customizable controls and analytics you need to:
Get students to do assignments on-time and improve
Assign adaptive assessments and customized exams and ensure on-time compliance.
Know any academic problems before they happen
Identify student weakness and “hot spots” of shared deficiency and use training time better.
Manage learners, compare performance, and react
Compare performance, review assessment answers, and outperform global averages.
Initiate remediation automatically without labor
Allow automations and prescriptive outputs to drive improvement without time & labor
Monitor activities of every student at any location
One screen, one login for all information – from any location – on any device.
You can hope – or you can know.
Complete system of content, assessment & remediation tracking.
Our group education product is a complete system, not a blind-eye “here ya go guys, good luck” box of online questions. We provide the education management tools today’s QBank-pushers simply don’t – or can’t.
Aimed at education outcome control & improvement.
We’re specifically aimed at group education outcome control and performance improvement, where knowledge and training systems are lacking, labor-intensive, or non-existent. Our system is 100% standalone, requiring no content management or technical set up on your end. It’s an instant, effective, affordable, and uniquely beneficial way to add new abilities to your program or augment any existing onboarding applications or training systems.
Improve pass-rates, scores, and efficiency.
Our system has improved exam pass-rates and scores roughly 14% on average and as much as 30% in some cases.
Learners save up to 22% of study time. Program Managers save up to 18% of education administration time. And, yes, program directors, you need only one account login no matter how many roles you serve or how many course assets you want available in your program.
In simple terms… why settle for “X,” when you need and can have “X” and “Y” and “Z” with Med-Challenger?

Clinical Media Banks
For enhanced visual learning and training.
Our courses include high-resolution clinical image banks useful in lectures and training reference.
Photos, diagrams, illustrations, xrays, CTs, MRIs, EKGs, auscultation audio, procedural video, and more consistute another unique benefit of Med-Challenger.
Unlike most other products, our media is organized by searchable topic for quick access and integration into other adjunct teaching materials.
Images are also used in image-based questions – a key requirement for exam preparation as image interpretation skills and image-based assessment Q&A are a major component of exams – and daily practice.
Best in class assessment.
Use our intelligent assessments or build your own.
Adaptive learning does the heavy lifting – automatically.
Multiple Test Types & Custom Exams
Med-Challenger provides out-of-the-box adaptive, USMLE simulations, chapter-based (clerkship) exams, and a Custom Exam Builder so you have flexibility to achieve any type of training objective or measurement.
Note: All Items are Assignable.When assessments or topic-based materials are used with our Assignment Manager, there’s no better way to assess, remediate, and drive exam preparation or improve knowledge quality.
Adaptive, Comprehensive USMLE Exam Simulations
This intelligent assessment issues a USMLE-based simulation remembers any questions missed by a user and prioritized those questions from re-issue in subsequent simulation usage. By routinely assigning adaptive exams to a student, our platform automatically ensures all materials are seen, tried, and mastered, without repeats of already mastered content.
Adaptive Chapter Exams for Easy Clerkship Testing
Adaptive chapter exams are useful in clerkship-style section testing. Chapter exams function similarly to the larger comprehensive simulations, but only use questions from each chapter respectively.
Topic-based Practice and Review Modes & Assessments
Our courses, at their core, feature topic-based learning segments that cover all key points in all specific topics in the USMLE exam blueprint. We provide Practice (unscored trials) and Review (read-friendly answer reviews) modes as well as a scored topic Assessment. Together this “programmed learning” progression is a proven method of enhancing retention of the material.
Build Your Own Exams - and Assign Them too!
Our Custom Exam Builder provides all the flexibility medical educators require. Pick questions from our question banks, allocate the number of questions served by your exam – even set allocations by section. You can set a number of parameters for a variety of testing applications – from self-study, to straight testing, and more. What’s more, you can save your custom builds and assign them with our Assignments Manager. No one else gives you this ability.
"Quick-Start" Pre-built Custom Exams
Beginning 2018, we’ll be adding pre-built custom exams such as a 100 question “baseline knowledge” exam in each specialty as a way to give program directors additional “out of the box” special case testing options. “Baseline exam” formats, for example, are useful for initial apple-to-apples testing (where everyone assigned gets the same questions) to help gauge incoming student knowledge on a standard. In time, these pre-built custom exam designs will also be usable as templates in custom exam creation. That way you can load up our expert-curated templates in our Custom Exam Builder as a starting point and change out or add any Q&A as you like, then save and assign your own special variants.
Automatic Feedback & Remediation
Gets double done for you.
After students take an adaptive assessment, we provide a “learning prescription” that informs students of weak areas of knowledge and presents a self-improvement path to “deeper dives” automatically.
Full report on correct and incorrect answers
Assessment details showing questions missed, what answers where given, and full answer explanations are accessible by students, but also by program administrators.
Understand areas of shared weakness with Hot Spots
Our unique “Hot Spots” feature shows you what questions were missed by multiple assignees. Knowing shared areas of difficulty helps program directors aim their group review efforts.
Empower self-improvement like never before
Students can initiate a “deeper dive” in any area where questions were missed. This allows for self-enrichment beyond the scope of the questions in the initial assessment.
Instructors save time and see faster returns
Essentially, our system of assessment and feedback provides a “double-cycle” of educational benefit. Students will have been able to self-remediate themselves without further instruction. Students improve faster – without your valuable time.
