About us

USMLEGalaxy is an online teaching company that has introduced unique live reviews in the form of online webinars for the first time in the USMLE market. USMLEGalaxy is operated by a group of Internal Medicine baord certified teaching physicians who have scored more than 95 percent on their USMLEs as well as Internal Medicine Board exams. USMLEGalaxy has first launched an interactive CCS workshop in June 2008 and since then, has helped thousands of students and residents to successfully pass USMLEStep3. The CCS Workshop, which is now popularly referred to as Dr.Red CCS Workshop or Archer CCS Workshop first started with 8 students in a webinar and now has expanded to reaching about 1200  step3 takers per month. Most of this success is a direct consequence of our unique teaching strategies, utmost level of care and personal attention placed on each and every attendee.

As the CCS Workshop expanded, we continued to receive number of requests from our workshop attendees to organize a rapid review course for Step3. We have been delivering Online USMLE Step3 and USMLE Step2 courses for about three years now, however, these were mainly done on one on one basis. We then launched Archer Step3 Rapid Review in a webinar format in December 2008. Introducing these lectures in webinar format paved us way to reach more people and make these reviews extremely affordable to everyone. The pass rate of our attendees on USMLE step2 and USMLE Step3 have consistently been above 90 percent. Now, we have expanded our courses to include USMLE Step1 and Step2 also.

Rapid reviews are available almost every two months. CCS Workshop for USMLE step3 is available every two weeks. Personal tutoring is available at any time of your choice from our highly efficient teaching physicians. The unique advantage of our courses is that you can enjoy classroom atmosphere while sitting in your very own living room. This minimizes your accomodation as well as your travel costs that make many live reviews on the market extremely expensive. You can interact with the instructor as well as with other students in this live webinar. You can ask questions and get them clarified instantaneously. We also plan to deliver recorded video lectures on the web but one should realize that studies have consistently shown that group effort created more success than studying on your own and listening to the lectures on your own. So, we recommend attending our live online sessions for maximum benefit. While you can ask all the questions you might have, you can also at the same time, learn from other attendee’s queries. Such video and audio inputs reinforces your learning, boosts your memory and leads you towards success in the shortest period of time!

USMLE Galaxy aims at delivering affordable and efficient reviews at your doorstep, on your desktop! Join us to experience the difference!

  5. Hello, I have failed Step 3 twice and I am taking it in late December. I noticed that I was having major problems with the CCS part because it’s like a mystery. If it wasn’t for your review I would have never understood my mistakes the first two times and I wouldn’t know how the system actually works. THANKS ARCHER!!!
