Calling all 2nd year medical students!  This is a reminder that next week on November 9th there will be a “Step One Fair” that will help you start preparing for the first step of the medical boards.  If you want to learn more about USMLE Easy, there will be a representative from McGraw-Hill attending, as well as a few friendly librarians, who can fill you in on the resources the library has to help you prepare for the first board exam.

See you there!
