Finally, get the help you need to thrive in medical school and beyond!

Struggling to learn everything medical school demands at the pace required to stay on track?

That's because medical school is impossibly hard and complex.

You’re expected to learn a massive volume of complex concepts at a pace that's difficult for anyone to manage. You simply don’t have enough time to sort through the avalanche of resources you’ve been given to identify what's truly relevant and important today.

On top of that, you worry that you're not making efficient use of your limited study time because it's unclear where you should put your focus right now to have the knowledge you'll need tomorrow.

We don’t think learning medicine should be this complicated…

That’s why we created Rx Bricks—an innovative digital learning system designed to help you easily learn the foundations of medicine using short, high-yield, interactive lessons called "bricks." 

Each brick uses clear language to teach you one, specific, "need-to-know" topic in just 10-20 minutes. Then it offers you built-in review tools to test your understanding of the content right away.

Plus, with four topical collections of bricks available today, and twelve more on the way, you'll soon have a robust library of medical curriculum at your fingertips.

It's time to take control and start paving your path to success—from the classroom to your career as a future doctor—brick by brick.

Key Features:

  • Built for Your Busy Life:
    Rx Bricks uses a clear writing style to deliver key content, and even provides an estimate of how much time you'll need to complete each brick so you can plan your study schedule more effectively.
  • Engaging Digital Experience:
    Rx Bricks brings medical content to life in a digital-first learning environment utilizing brilliant images, interactive flashcards, and SmartNotes.
  • Prioritized "Need to Know" Content:
    Rx Bricks was designed to provide the perfect amount of foundational content so you can easily understand the need-to-know material first.
  • Built-In Practice Questions:
    Self-assessment questions help you know that you've understood the key content in each brick, providing rich explanations that detail why each answer is correct and why each distracter is incorrect.
  • Learning Objectives:
    Each brick includes specific, measurable objectives at the beginning and end of each brick to clearly identify the key goals of the learning path.
  • Patient-Centered Focus:
    Embedded within the brick, boxes like Clinical Correlations and articles from our partner, In-Training, illustrate and clarify topics while providing examples that connect them to the lives of patients and their providers.
  • Go Deeper with USMLE-Rx Tools*:
    Discover how each brick's content connects with the USMLE Step 1. Rx Bricks integrates directly with other USMLE-Rx tools so you can go deeper by viewing related First Aid Facts, Flash Facts, Express Videos, and Qmax questions with ease.
    *Requires subscription to these products, sold separately.

Here's what students say about Rx Bricks:

…the bricks are quick and easy. They have short text intermingled with images and questions to maintain active learning. I am a visual learner so having these bricks would have been very helpful to me.

There isn’t a resource like this currently out there, and I think it would be very helpful to have during both first and second year. It’s great that it matches up with First Aid, which is vital as that’s practically the STEP 1 Bible.

Every brick has objectives, flash card questions, and practice questions. Overall I enjoy the bricks a lot more than reading lecture slides or outlines since the bricks are interactive and well-integrated with the USMLE-Rx ecosystem.

Really strong resource. It’s like being in an actual class.

It is really nicely organized and interactive—I love the flashcards in the text and the easy to read menu.

I love the way they are written. It isn’t too medical and I love the scaffolding. First, they go over basics, then they go into details, and they quiz you along the way while you read as well as after each brick.
