HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS
“Kaplan helped me achieve my goals by providing me with a detailed study plan and complete study material. The medical advisors were amazing and supported me at any time, giving me quick and comprehensive answers to any question that I had.”
Cindy Amadea Limanto
"Kaplan helped me with a strategic roadmap to follow for the whole journey and a nice summary of the relevant information from live lectures, books, and videos. These helped me adapt quickly to different medical cultures, which increased my medical knowledge right from the start. Taking the in-center course was a great opportunity for me as an IMG. I had the chance to meet other doctors from all over the world who share the same goal. It was a constructive environment to study and support each other on the journey."
"Kaplan helped me create a structured plan to follow, allowing me to focus on the most important subjects and maximize my score. [My medical advisor] was very helpful in creating a daily schedule and being there to always motivate me.”

MED CENTER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I apply for a student visa?
When can I start my program?
If you need a student visa, you would need to apply at least four months in advance of your planned start date. If you do not require visa support, you can begin your program on our next scheduled start date. We have new student start dates on the first Tuesday of every month.
What are the Live Lectures?
Live Lectures are a component of your In Center program and should be planned toward the mid-point of your studies. This is an intense, high-yield review of the most heavily tested topics and concepts with our world-renowned faculty. Because your live classes integrate key concepts, students should prepare for a minimum of 3 months before-hand to ensure they have the foundational level of knowledge needed for best outcomes.
Will I work with an advisor during my program?
Yes, personalized guidance from your academic advisor is an important part of this program. Your academic advisor will be a medical graduate who assists with your study plan and residency timeline.Attend one-on-one meetings and group advising sessions throughout the program.
How will I progress through the program?
Review: Start your learning with subject-based review using the guided study plan provided by your advisor (it includes your books, assessment exams, and video exercises). Attend weekly in person group workshops and meet with your advisor to check progress.
Remediate: Integrate the subjects as they are tested on the exam during your Live Lecture program. Re-review foundational content as needed to cover any gaps in knowledge.
Practice: Use Kaplan’s Qbank and take full-length assessment exams for realistic practice to be best prepared for exam day.
