    It is all about retrieval. You will remember more if you see a patient with lets say a simple disease like Diabetes in the clinic while studying for step 1. I think the idea is to put faces to the text. I personally think it is a great method since you will remember it longer. When you get into med school you will learn that you will forget words in textbooks but when you walk around the campus or outside the campus and you see the same disease in action, it is harder to forget. Ask your doc? He or she will tell you the different between a med student and an attending is time and repetition. I applaud them being bold enough to do this. Their score will be exceptional. Their students will get to see the disease in action and they inter grade their students into the hospital system during basic science part.

    I am normally very careful of new schools, but I can see their vision and it will pay off in a big way. So "Srh" it is a good thing. If you have not been through basic science you won't understand what they are doing but I honestly understand it.

    Uh, this reply is like a flight of ideas and does not address the question: ?Approvals by any state in the USA? What are the standards? Yossarrian

    Hello, TAU as you know is a recently aquired (within the past 2 years) University. While we do have acknowledgements and accreditations to support the future career of our students within the US, it is important to establish TAU as a reputible institution. We have not been denied accreditation(s) by any bodies which we have applied and would like to ensure that we are not denied as countless number of international institutions are by the MBC. We do have a plan to work meticulously through the US Med system and look forward to their board approval.

    In regard to the Step 1 inquiry. We allow students to begin their rotations because we are the facilitators. In the US as many institions utilize 3rd parties who send students to their sites (which is still a great thing) we are able to continue teaching and developing our students knowledge base. Students have unlimited access to our professor(s), library, and resource center. By supporting the students in their exams (Step 1 and 2) we are more confident in sending them to attain hands on experience while assisting them in integrating the information. We do expect students to have taken Step 1 before they enter the OB,Internal, and Surgical rotations. I hope that I have answered your query.

    Hello TAUadmissions,

    You said that you expect students to have taken Step 2 before they enter the OB, IM, and Surgical rotations. Isn't Step 2 is normally taken at the end of the 4th year after one has taken those rotations?

    So just to be sure, after md5, you can start clinicals in the 4 sites TAU has set up, but who can only take electives and limited core rotations before you take step 1?
