The JumpStart Medical Education (JS Med Ed) program is a competitive online five-month long course designed to make prospective medical students more prepared than they have ever been to reach their fullest academic potential. We are constantly striving to find more ways to make learning easier, faster, and personalized. We achieve this by providing students with the most efficient learning tools, resources, and exposure to the pre-clinical medical school curriculum. Our entire program is self-paced, easily accessible, and designed to revolutionize medical education and make medicine less daunting, all the while propelling our students toward success! We are now offering a 12-week intensive course for the upcoming summer. Same great course and content in a shorter more intensive format. Register now for the Summer 2017 section!
Instructors-Our instructors have consisted of scientists, professors, medical students, teaching assistants, and teachers themselves. They volunteer their time as they truly believe in the importance of spreading this information to as many premedical students as possible. While we strongly believe medical faculty can bring a lot to our program, our focus is in creating a program than can be provided to students in any area and at any time. We prefer students teaching students as they truly understand the misinterpretations and learning strategies of current students. Our sessions approach learning through case studies. These sessions can be held by our trained staff as they involve learning through strategically placed mini-lectures in each case.
A New Standard- We believe all premeds should enter medical school with a basic understanding of what is coming. They should have exposure and priming to materials in medical school so they do not feel stressed or scared by the idea. We want to personally affect each student so that they do not feel the fire hydrant effect of information many med students complain about. Our course not only focuses on education, but also experience. We will expose and increase your confidence for working with several demographics so that you can easily talk, discuss, and work with any patient you may run into. By making the course affordable and accessible to all students across the nation, we hope to set new standards for the preparedness of premeds!
Support- The premedical field is KNOWN for being "cutthroat". We want nothing to do with this! Your fellow premed should know as much or more than you do, if they do not, it is your job to help. As a future physician, you need to support your peers. Our instructors are completely supportive and expect you to provide the same type of environment for other students.
Scholarships- We give out a select number of scholarships to students who are disadvantaged and cannot afford the course fee. You can apply for this scholarship by writing a 1000 character (without spaces) essay regarding your financial disadvantages and what you hope to achieve in your career as a future medical professional.
Mission- JS Med Ed is staffed by experienced and well-trained individuals who are passionate about the practice, learning, and especially the teaching of medicine. With our staff's experience, this course gives you access to professional networking opportunities as well as resources for mentoring, coaching, and one-on-one advice about your undergraduate, graduate, and professional careers. We're here to help you reach your full potential.
Design that caters to you-We know you, as undergraduate students, don't have time to read thousands of pages of textbooks and sift through googles of google searches. That's what we're for! We want you to be able to learn and master your material without having to sacrifice any of your obligations. That's why this curriculum has been in the works for years and hand-tailored to fit your needs. Exams are online and can be taken anytime, anywhere. You have 24/7 online access to all course materials, including lecture podcasts, slides, and notes. We have a highly responsive staff ready to answer your questions. All material needed for success is taught in class.
Your average week- Each week consists of two lectures (Saturday and Sunday). Podcasts are available for review. Each Friday at 11:55 pm, a 1 hour exam is due that tests the student on the materials from that week's lectures. Students are also graded on open-ended response case study assignments that challenge the student's approach to issues of medical ethics.
LEADER IN PREMEDICAL EDUCATIONAL
Our course is specifically targeted for high school and college students who desire to learn about medicine through a biopsychosocial-spiritual model of care. We believe every premedical student should have the opportunity to get a tangible head start on their medical education. By enrolling, you are guaranteed to enhance your medical application through advancing your knowledge of medicine along with your holistic understanding of healthcare.
INSTRUCTORS- Our online instructors create our program materials and have years of experience in medical education with undergraduates and high school students. Our instructors receive months of training which allow them to provide you with a quality educational experience.
A NEW STANDARD- We believe all motivated premedical students should have tangible access to getting a head start on their medical training. Thus, we make enrolling and starting the course simple so you can begin right away.
EASY TO LEARN- The lectures slides do not only teach you WHAT you have to know about medicine and the human body, but also HOW you should master and commit the information to long-term memory. There are thousands of mnemonics and memory tricks, visuals, and diagrams integrated in each lecture. We prompt your memory so next time (hopefully in medical school) you get exposed to the same material, it won't be foreign to you.
SUPPORT- Our instructors and coordinators are here to offer guidance in every aspect of your premedical education. We realize you have a life outside of our course! In fact, all of our previous students have reported doing better in their own classes since they started applying the same study tools and techniques we teach in our course. Our coordinators understand the stress of the medical admissions process and support you in your short and long term academic and professional goals. Our online classroom environment is supportive, and your exams and activities are graded to track your progress. MCAT preparation after the course is available through axilogy.com
Premed Advanced Medical Education Course Reviews
Previously Called Jump Start Med Ed
"Being selected to learn and participate in JumpStart has been one of the greatest privileges for my first quarter back to UCSD... It's inspiring to be taught by some of the most brilliant individuals who I continually look up to. The information intrigues me with the flawless designs further accompanied with tips and tricks (i.e. hilarious mnemonics) to better engrain information on my mind. Although I was at first intimidated by the CBT's, I became accustomed to the format of the tests by studying beforehand effectively. I value being a part of this pilot cohort and being exposed to material and experiences that will serve me well through my pursuit of medical school in the near future. The passion of all members are unquestionable."-Huy Tran, Winter 2016 student
"The instructors are really nice and approachable, They are willing to work with what your interests are without ignoring things that are important for a well-rounded medical learning." -Akshita Taneja, Winter 2016 Student
"The JumpStart Program has an absolutely amazing staff that go the extra mile for you. The program helps students grasp rigorous scientific concepts, but also brings social issues into perspective. Being able to understand and bring together the social issues and science will benefit everyone in their future medical endeavors. I highly recommend this program for prospective healthcare students that want to gain an edge before they enter professional schools." -Kevin Gilbert, Winter 2016 student
Affordability- Our semester-length course is priced at $1000.00. We are able to keep the cost low due to our AMAZING instructors & founders who have dedicated their time in making the materials and spreading the course. Our course will improve your knowledge and ability in basic science courses as well as the MCAT.
Online- Anyone is welcome to enroll in our online program. While is program is tailored towards premeds, we have accepted several people who are simply interested in learning about the content offered in the course or who may be pursuing other healthcare fields. We are welcome to accepting more future nurses, dentists, podiatrists, D.O.s, masters/PhD/postbacc students, and those interested in nonmedical fields as well. Our course does a great job of explaining difficult content in a pace understandable for any background and we welcome anyone who is interested.
Training-Our instructors sit through an entire 12 week course and are involved in answering student questions. They are then involved in creating new course content that can be tailored for the size of students at their college. Training involves weekly Skype meetings that allow our instructors to implement brand new medical education strategies into their own classroom. We allow our instructors to manipulate case studies to best fit their class interested while maintaining our basic content to achieve a consistent yet personalized education. Instructors are allowed to move at a pace consistent to their average learner so advanced students (most premeds) do not feel "bored" as they may in typical college courses. Our online sessions are held by our main course creator thus providing you the best online learning experience possible.
Learning Made Easy- Our course materials and layout is designed by a medical student with a passion for education. She believes that any material can be made easy through stories, analogies, mnemonics, and deeper explanations/links that allow your brain to actually learn the material. With enthusiasm and fun ways to learn this vast amount of material, you can challenge yourself and gain a new perspective for medical education.
Applicable Education- It is hard to stay focused on medical care when you are forced to learn organic chemistry or even biochemistry without medical examples! We integrate all of your basic science courses in out curriculum to make your education more applicable to patients and medical school.
Holistic Care- Medicine is not just a science. Taking care of a human involves social, physical, and knowledge-based skills. We hope to provide training in all of these so you have a good foundation to build on when you enter medical school. Learning about different diseases, age-groups, LGBT, veterans, and being training in everything from exercise/nutrition to spiritual support will allow you to build upon your previous knowledge and everyday experiences!
EFFICIENCY- We strive to help you learn and absorb as much material as possible in a self-paced 5 month period. We do this by integrative case study-based learning alongside exams which cover every disease and diagnosing skill. Our holistic experiences can be completed online by responding to some interactive questions and leading discussions with other online users, with unlimited access to the material so you can review it anytime.
INNOVATIVE MEDICAL EDUCATION-Medical schools are updating their curriculum, and we want to make sure you gain the most effective approach to learning as we can find. Our research team focuses on finding the most updated and research based teaching methods which allow our online sessions to be engaging and challenging in order to allow you to best absorb the information.
COST- Our organization is dedicated to offering students all our services at a very low or no cost. The fee includes access to thousands of lecture slides, links, and practice problems (adapted from USMLE Step 1 and 2), covering the first two preclinical years of medical school. Our course can enhance your understanding of premed courses while also affirming and ensuring your interest in medical school. Compared to the fee of a single course college course, post-bacc/masters program, or test prep company course our cost is significantly low.
"Jumpstart not only teaches you the materials that are taught in the first two years of medical school, it also incorporates many disciples that enables you to become a well-rounded and more informed individual. Jumpstart is a great way to get a head start on your medical education, to get to know many wonderful individuals , and to get an extra boost on your med school application. Also, learning about the diseases put things in perspectives, which helps me to remember materials from other classes. In addition, it exposes me to other important perspectives of health care such as religion, nutrition, and certain neglected population (homeless, LGBT..) - aspects that are often not being emphasized in medical schools. Jumpstart not only teaches you the materials that are taught in the first two years of medical school, it also incorporates many disciples that enables you to become a well-rounded and more informed individual." - Thuan N. Winter 2016 Student
"Jumpstart was a fun experience that really helped me learn a lot about medicine and all the aspects of being a doctor. Thank you so much!"- Pranavsai Iddamsetty, Winter 2016 student
"The disciplines that are taught concurrently in the lectures are immensely helpful. Those disciplines have the power to make very well rounded students who have the potential to interview very very well for medical school." - Gabby Brody Winter 2016 Student
"JumpStart is a great opportunity for students that are interested in the health field to get a sense of the material that medical students learn during their first two years of schooling. Not only is the material interesting and great to learn, but the program also offers extra experiences outside the classroom. From yoga classes to learning about hospice care, students gain a tremendous amount of knowledge in healthcare. I would recommend JumpStart to for anyone who loves to learn and want to be part of a group of people who are passionate and dedicated to their education."-Anonymous, Winter 2016 student
