If you are struggling with USMLE Step 3 Preparation or have failed USMLE Step 3 and are planning to Retake USMLE Step 3, Please Read Our USMLE Step 3 Student Testimonials below:

-Taj from California 

After multiple attempts at Step 3, and brink of non-renewal of contract, I decided it was time to get some help (as re-reading MTB, first aid, re doing qbank questions was not helping). I came across many tutoring services for step 3, and even had sessions before choosing the right tutor. I chose Dr. Malik based on the following: live one on one course with extensive and thorough feedback. He has a methodical approach to understanding basic science concepts and correlation, understanding and identifying weak areas and how to calmly and effectively pass the exam. Don't get me wrong, you have to do the homework and study on your own, in order for this to be fruitful but his is teaching style is different than other tutoring services. During the time I was with him, I had my moments of being a weak link but he was there to provide moral support and reiterate the end goal (which is to pass the USMLE). His moral support was an uplifting factor and helped me to gain confidence day by day. Up until the exam date, he was supporting me and making sure I stayed focused to pass the exam. He not only helps to drill concepts into your head but he also takes the time to explain the details that we often overlook (and those are usually tested!!). The time, effort and money is well spent! If anyone is in the same boat as me, then contact Dr. Malik asap. I took my step 3 and finally passed this time with flying colors (scored 30 points above my nbme exam) and I highly recommend his services. Thank you, Dr. Malik.

-N.S, from NY

I finished my psychiatry residency in July 2017 but was not able to pass the step 3. I felt so humiliated in front of my classmates while they were taking about their new jobs. I was traumatized, emotionally disturbed that started affecting my family happiness. When we go out for dinner we didn’t enjoy it, Always felt a burden. I tried myself so hard to pass this exam. I even sent my 4 years son back to my country hoping that I will be able to focus and will be done with my exam. I enrolled Kaplan course. But none of it worked. I had three attempt and my score was trending down with each attempt despite putting wholehearted effort. I was alarmed when my score in third attempt was 167. I never had such horrible score in my life. Then I realized that I needed some help. I googled and found Dr. Malik website. I spoke with Dr. Malik. After speaking to Dr. Malik I realized that I was not preparing the right material. I was just putting my effort. 
He is indeed a great tutor. He genuinely wants to help people like us. He is extremely knowledgeable and explains thing in a simple way. He teaches how to approach the question. When I went for the exam. First time in my life I enjoyed the exam. I got my result on August 9th and I passed and got 203. It was huge improvement from 167 to 203 and all the credit goes to him. I do strongly believe that god comes in a form of a person. For me he is the god who helped me in the worst phase of my life. For 4 years I never saw a light in the tunnel and Dr. Malik not only helped me to see the light but to cross the tunnel. I honestly don’t have words to thank him for all the support educationally and emotionally. The money that I spent is nothing compared to the relief that I have in my life now. And the credit goes entirely to Dr. Malik, thank you. Please free to contact me should you have further questions. 

-P.S, from NY

I was desperate, literally. I had failed to pass my USMLE Step 3 exam on multiple trials, lost my job, even after completing my residency in psychiatry and child psychiatry fellowship. I didn't know what to do, but I am Buddhist and firm believer that things happen for a reason and people are brought into our lives for a reason. I did a google search for tutors, as I felt that it was my only option I had left. I had nothing to lose at this point, so I called him. Dr. Malik, I think after hearing my story was skeptical as well if I could pass this exam, as the odds were against me. However, after we talked for a bit, I think he heard in my voice, my determination not to give up. So he invested his time in me and I invested my life in learning from him. It was not an easy road, it was a challenge being so far removed from general medicine for so long but that's what makes us passionate about medicine. Dr. Malik not only helped me with knowledge portion of the exam, I think the biggest challenge to passing the exam was my own fear and anxiety about "what if". He truly helped me work through my fears. We had completed all of the questions and lessons and I just had to sit down meditate and let all my worries go and just do what my mind told me to do. I took the exam and for the first time, I sat there not a nervous nelly, but very calm and centered, knowing that I did all I could do and that I have a lot of people who believe in me and support me. And as I waited for months for the results, they finally came in with a PASS!!! I conquered the odds, and I have Dr. Malik to thank for believing in me, for helping me remember what my passion is and how all the hard work is worth it in in the end. He came into my life for a very good reason, and has taught me countless lessons not only about medicine but about life. Thank you, Dr.Malik!!

-P from NY

Dr. Malik was recommended to me by a friend after I needed help passing USMLE Step 3 while balancing the busy schedule of residency. His experiences with tutoring students with all types of stories and backgrounds help him understand where you are coming from. He utilizes the NBME practice materials as the main source of assessment and teaching. Dr. Malik's medical knowledge is outstanding and very well rounded. I felt that way from the first session I had with him. He does a great job at breaking things down, and has a really strong foundation of essential concepts of medicine, many of which are the things we learned many years ago and have trouble with. He is very familiar with USMLE questions, patterns, and what type of things they focus on and continue to expect us to know. He stays up to date on everything including screening guidelines which is very important for USMLE Step 3. For me, working with him helped me increase my USMLE Step 3 score significantly after just 3 weeks. He went over a lot of foundations of independent practice material because that's what I struggled with more. He is good at identifying and focusing on your weakness. He was supportive, dedicated, and driven to helping me succeed at a really difficult time when my back was against the wall and I needed help. I am helpful to him for giving me the push I needed to pass my test.    

-K from Baltimore 

Dr. Malik is an outstanding tutor. He is very knowledgeable about the USMLE and its core content. I think to really master the exam, you need someone to identify key aspects of the question stem and identify what the examiner is looking for in the question. The reality is that its not always what you know when it comes to standardized exams, its more of how you apply what you know. In this regards Dr.  Malik is one of the best and should be commended. He was an instrumental part in my success, and I would consistently recommend him for future students. He is hands down outstanding.

-L from California

Dr. Malik helped me prepare for Step 2 CK and Step 3. He went over the materials thoroughly with me and he personalized his teachings to focus on my individual weaknesses. He was also very encouraging and accommodating as the schedule of a resident were unpredictable. Very thankful he was there both times! Highly recommended if you are struggling with the Steps! 

-J from TEXAS

My Psychiatry residency was put on hold until I could pass Step 3. After multiple failed attempts I passed in April 2015 with Dr. Malik's help. Initially, I was reluctant to pay for his tutoring services but I had to do something to change up the way I was studying that wasn't working.

Previously, I studied all the review methods (Kaplan, Uworld, DIT, MTB, etc). I knew the material but I was going about each question the wrong way. Dr. Malik provided insight and provided tips to approach each question in a more strategic thought process. We went through multiple practice tests and day by day, week by week my practice scores improved dramatically in the short time frame of 1 month. Dr. Malik truly cares about his students and will work with you one on one or in a group setting to prepare for Step 3.

I highly recommend Dr. Malik’s tutoring services for anyone preparing for their USMLE tests to boost their score and do what it takes to pass.

- L from Philadelphia

After working with Dr. Malik I was able to reach my goal after straddling the passing score for some time. He helped me understand questions and reviewed my weaker subjects. He was very encouraging and I couldn't have beaten the exam without his help! 

-RS from Philadelphia 

I HIGHLY recommend Harish Malik and have since referred him to many of my friends.  About me: US grad, Step 1=203, Step 2= 231 (after failing it twice).  After failing step 2, I took a 6 week Kaplan Course, and then took a practice test several weeks later that I still failed.  Determined to try something new, I turned to Harish Malik.  After working with him for 3-4 weeks, I got at 237 on my practice test. No joke. 

I found him on google, we had a short free session on video chat where he went through a few questions with me, and I was hooked. Why is he so good? He is insanely astute and can identify and target your weakness.  Focusing on your weakness is the best way to see significant improvement.

Still not sure about him? Yes, not many people have heard of him, and yes it’s easier to go with the main stream Kaplan/DIT etc.  But for those really looking to improve your score, especially if your previous studies haven’t proven fruitful, you NEED someone like Harish. Period.  Ask him for my contact info if you want to know more.

-Arvi from California 

I am very thankful to Dr Malik for his dedicated support and guidance for Step 3 preparation. I was devastated after my unsuccessful attempts in step 3 and being in residency it was becoming hard to focus on studying and step 3 prep. I had less than 2 months to prepare before my next attempt (possibly my last) and decided to get Dr. Malik's help at the last minute. Dr. Malik encouraged me each day and helped me cover a lot of study material especially multiple blocks of questions each day with him persistently. He motivated me and continued to share words of motivation just to ensure that I give my best. I was on of the first ones to prepare for the recently changed & updated step 3 examination with him. In order to prepare for the new exam format I did NBME's for step 1, 2 and of course revised step 3, did u-world twice again and then first-aid. I was improving my scores on u-world. Also just in 2 weeks of studying with him I gave my in-training exam and scored highest. Sincerely, I would not have cleared step 3 without Dr. Malik's help and guidance. I wish I knew him earlier and would have a lot better scores on all my USMLE exams.

I am now happily pursuing my residency because Dr. Malik helped and supported me in my difficult times. I highly recommend Dr. Malik and will recommend him to anyone who wants to clear USMLE on the first go and with excellent results.

-S from Georgia

I googled step 3 help and found Dr Malik website and I called him and he literally started to help me from day one. I failed step 3 twice in residency due to less time to study. Dr. Malik gave me the confidence and pointed out my mistakes and built a lot of confidence. He was able to pinpoint my areas of weakness and helped me through them. The classes for me were basically MCQs, and clarification of the various concepts wherever I was wrong. He is very knowledgeable. He also motivated me to overcome my anxiety of the exam. Thanks to Dr. Malik for his sincerity and loyalty. I would not pass this exam without his help. I would recommend his help.

-M from NJ

After one failed attempt at USMLE  Step 3 and just finishing up my residency, I was at a loss. My life was at a stand still until I completed this exam. I was already at a unique disadvantage. As a psychiatry resident, our training left us all with much less training in straight medicine, less than a year. The bulk of our training was solely focused on psychiatry. I had already tried the typical referrals of Kaplan, and Master the Boards. Obviously these weren't enough to supplement the pockets of information I did not receive by specializing. I didn't know where else to turn...
In my desperation, I knew I had to do something different. I did some online research looking for a tutor. That was when I found Dr. Malik. At first, I was skeptical, as I didn't know anyone that had taken his course. However, he was prompt to alleviate all of my concerns and questions. He even provided a free introductory session to show me a preview. I decided to sign up.Within one month, I already KNEW I was on my way. Classes were great and supportive. Dr. Malik gave me all the tools that I needed and was lacking in order to pass Step 3. He even provided individual assessments of my weaknesses and strengths in order for me to progress. I actually had FUN in the process and had structure and a schedule counting down to exam day.To sum it up, Dr. Malik was RIGHT ON THE MARK , focusing on high yield topics. I HIGHLY recommend using his services for this exam. Thank you, Dr. Malik! I can now move on to attending status!! Step 3 is a special exam, much different than the other USMLE exams and really needs more than what the other services provide. If I had to start over again, I would bypass the other material and courses and only use Dr. Malik. I HIGHLY recommend using his services for USMLE Step 3.

-RE from Texas

A friend introduced Dr. Malik to me after I had failed USMLE Step 3. I was under time constraint to take up the exam as soon as possible. Dr. Malik helped me to prepare for the exam in ‘less than a month’. He was able to pinpoint my areas of weakness and helped me through them. The tutoring classes for me were basically MCQs, and clarification of the various concepts wherever I was wrong. He is very knowledgeable. He also makes a sincere effort to know his student. The classes were friendly, stress free and pleasant. He also motivated me to overcome my anxiety of the exam. He got me ready in just a few weeks. Oh yeah! I did get a good score. Thanks to Dr. Malik for his sincerity and loyalty toward his students.

-Anna from Illinois

Dr. Harish helped guide my thinking on concepts that I had trouble with, and also taught me many techniques for long-term retention for Step 3. This was the first time that I was taking the exam, and had finished medical school and my last USMLE exam more than 1 year ago, but I was not yet in residency. I felt overwhelmed studying for this exam on my own, as I did not even know how to write orders, but after being tutored by Dr. Harish, I felt confident that I would surely pass, at the very least! He does not provide any shortcuts or answers, but cuts the amount of studying that needs to be done on your own instead, due to how he is able to connect different topics. He expects you to study at least 6 hours each day, at the minimum, but motivates you to keep working harder. I honestly enjoyed studying, while I was being mentored by him! He tailors his tutoring style to each student--something I did not understand at first, after speaking with previous students of his, before I began my tutoring--and discussed the material with me at a slower pace, but in hindsight, that helped me understand everything more thoroughly. I am indebted to Dr. Harish for his immense patience, incredible knowledge, and caring nature in helping me through Step 3, during a stressful period of my life, and I am going to tell anybody I come across that might be struggling with test-taking about him (especially since he can tutor on various subjects and exams). The biggest regret I have is that I wish I had known about him earlier and had started tutoring with him from USMLE Step 1 onwards, to USMLE Step 2 CK, and through USMLE Step 3, along with CS and CCS, if necessary! Thank you for everything, Dr. Harish--you are an exceptional teacher and person. 


-Ike from Georgia

When I was a few weeks away from taking my USMLE Step 3 on my own, I felt extremely comfortable going into the exam because I had been studying for two and a half months on my own and doing hundreds of questions a day. I felt taking one of the NBME practice exams for the USMLE Step 3 was a mere formality. After taking my NBME I was in shock and went numb when I saw my score(embarrassed to say it was a 310-a 165 actual USMLE score). That night I immediately started to look for help just about everywhere I could get it. I felt taking a course would be redundant because they would repeating much of the information I already knew and would be counterproductive due to their inability to help my needs in regards to Step 1 (didn't use any course for Step 2). I saw 3 other people online similar to Dr. Malik that I spoke to over the phone. I chose Dr. Malik because of the understanding he gave me in terms of analytical thinking in just an hour of conversation. His concepts were very different and detailed from anyone I have come across. I had a choice of either using SKYPE because I live in Atlanta or traveling to Washington D.C. for two months to get more personal one-on-one time. Once I decided on Washington D.C., I was tutored by Dr. Malik for the next two months. I took an NBME exam before my exam and got a 480 (213 actual USMLE score). Dr. Malik made me realize that I knew plenty of information but my way of analytical thinking needed to change if I wanted to pass Step 3. I strongly suggest that anyone who needs help with the USMLE Steps 1,2, or 3 use Dr. Malik. It will change your life.


 -Bella from Maryland

Dear friends,

I failed USMLE Step 3 twice. I finally found the best usmle tutor, Dr. Malik and with his help, I was able to pass my step 3. I liked his style of teaching and he was very patient with me and I asked him as many questions I had and clarified my concepts. The most important thing I would say is that I learned how to think on the USMLE Step 3 in the analytical questions. It's no longer about memorization and recall, they are testing  your analytical skills and ability to apply your clinical knowledge. He motivated me, gave me the updated clinical knowledge and got me ready for my Step 3 in 2 months.

If you have difficulties with preparation for Step 3 or any other USMLE Steps, please contact him without wasting any more of your precious time.

The one to one approach, and very exam oriented approach and his peculiar style of approaching Step 3 MCQs and CCS approach will help you pass your Step 3 just like it helped me.

Thank you Dr. Malik for all your help.

- Natalie fom Washington, DC

I studied with Dr. Malik for 2 months for my USMLE Step 3, and I just found out that I passed...and I got a great score. He is an amazing tutor. He would continue to motivate me with his texts. His knowledge base is so great. He not only helped me study, he also showed me how to love what I'm studying, so it wouldn't be a chore. I had failed my first exam and was quite upset. But he totally turned that around with consistency and motivation. I will recommend Dr. Malik to all my friends.

- R. F. from Florida

Dr. Malik is a very focused tutor. His support and guidance pushed me to strive for my target score. In addition to the support he provided, the knowledge and skill of Dr. Malik is unparalleled. He is a great teacher. I saw an improvement in just one session as I went from scoring 46% to 66% on UWorld after incorporating his unique testing strategy.  I would recommend his tutoring service to students prepping for their USMLEs – it will improve one’s knowledge, confidence, and test-taking abilities.

-F.J. from Virginia

Dr. Harish Malik , who is providing online USMLE tutoring, is really caring, honest and passionate about medical field and sharing his knowledge and guidance to other doctors, so they could be able to serve and treat patients with real knowledge. He provide FREE session to give you an idea how to prepare for success.

I found his web site online and hesitantly called but I didn't leave a message. He called me back right away and as soon as I started my conversation with him, I realized and felt his care and seriousness about his teaching and guidance and the best simple steps to leads us to pass USMLE successfully with confidence and better knowledge.

After only one FREE session with him I feel really motivated and found the easiest way to study for success. I really recommend Dr. Malik to all of the students and medical graduates, who are trying to ace USMLE in first attempt.

-Ekta from New York

Hi, I accidentally came across Dr. Malik’s website when I was studying to take the USMLE Step 2 for the second time. I have severe test anxiety and it prevented me from taking the step 2. I wanted a coach, someone to teach me test taking strategies and not to memorize every detail. That is when I decided to just browse over my options of a tutor/coach for this exam. Dr. Malik was the right accident that happened at the right time. He was a blessing from God, I called him just to ask questions about the cost. I wasn’t planning on starting with him, but he convinced me to do a free session, so I took his offer. I chose to learn about EKG’s and I was extremely surprised at the amount of knowledge he shared with me in one hour. This man clearly knows everything about medicine!!!! He knows anything & everything. He follows the latest guidelines and will teach you the skills to learn everything you should know. He is kind, patient and became a friend because he really cared about my progress. He didn't just skip something because I didn't feel comfortable, he sat there and explained until I understood it thoroughly. He taught be bio-stats in 1.5 days and I will never forget it. He will walk you through every question and get you to think just like him. I was shocked at how easy he makes things appear. He has turned my life around.. he got me an incredible score and improved it by 45 points, it’s unbelievable.

He has tactics and techniques that all physicians should know. He will tell you how to train your brain because he has the skills and resources to get you there. I promise, when you see all the resources he has to offer you will start realizing USMLE is really not that difficult. Everyone should know where the USMLE info is coming from and equips you for your future. He taught me where to get the information and how to interpret the information. He taught me to let my mind take the test, instead of me trying to control it. His guidance is what made it possible for me to stand again with pride. I’m thankful to have met someone who is so humble and caring. He deserves way more appreciations then what he gets!!! In the beginning he had told me that he can get me a high score and like others, I doubted him but I needed the help so I started studying with him. He saw something in me that I couldn't even begin to see and he believed in me. He encouraged me in the times of needs and told me to keep moving forward. I followed his instructions very diligently and precisely. I did every single practice exam he asked me to do and soon I saw a trend… on the real exam, I could guess where the question is going 9/10 times so I never changed an answer and went with whatever choice my brain picked first, as instructed by Dr. Malik.

I let my subconscious mind take the real exam without consciously controlling… Dr. Malik was absolutely correct about it and I got a score that’s unbelievable!!!For any student to do well he or she must have complete faith in his master and that was my motto! If I’m going to pay him, I’m going to trust him and he just held my hand until I came out of that test. Even when I took the practice NBME before the real exam, I was still doubting myself but he kept telling me just trust yourself… and consistently my score just kept increasing, even after having severe test anxiety. He trained me to think like him and I was able to finish all the questions on time with even some time to spare. He will train you, as long as you trust him. He has been nothing but a blessing and I can’t wait to start step 3 studying with him, which I plan to take in the next 2 months. It was money well spent because no Kaplan or any other review can offer what Dr. Malik can offer, I can guarantee this!!! Thank you Dr. Malik.. you are absolutely the best!!!!!!!!!

-S from Illinois

Dr. Malik is an excellent tutor for USMLE Step 2 CK. I was skeptical at first because his approach was like something i have never done before. He wants you to have a good understanding of the medical terms and has a plethora of links to help you learn. This was a strategy I have never done before, but I am glad I did. Once I built trust in Dr. Malik, and did exactly what he wanted me to do, I started to realize how easy studying could be. Suddenly, I was reading and understanding questions completely differently and the material made more sense. Before I would finish the question I knew what they were looking for right away. He pushes you everyday, and while intimidating at first, I felt like he really wanted you to learn and do better. I started to look forward to seeing him everyday. Dr. Malik made me do hundreds of questions at one point, and I would look at them a week later before we reviewed them, I noticed myself catching my old mistakes instantly. I approached each question differently thanks to him. My NBME score went from 190 to 229 in just 4 weeks. I would have never passed this exam without his help and I look forward to working with him for USMLE Step 3.

-Megan from Dallas

Dr. Malik is very knowledgeable, and I am impressed with his proficiency and advent of simplifying medicine. I will continue to come back to him for help with the rest of my USMLE exams moving forward. He is a great tutor and a great investment in your future. Harish has a unique approach, and the experience is worth more than what he charges. I highly recommend him !!!!!!

-C from Vermont

I was looking for a tutor to help me ace the Step 2 CK and found Dr. Malik's Website. The Free 2 Hour session was very helpful and resourseful. Dr. Malik takes you back to the very basics which is very important to understanding the questions being asked on the Boards. I found him very knowledgeable and dedicated to what he does. Thank you Dr. Malik for all your support!

-J from Peru

I think what distinguishes a good tutor from an excellent one is the commitment to his students. From Dr. Harish Malik, I not only received a comprehensive review of topics and questions, but a targeted support based on my strengths and weaknesses. He shares valuable resources and strategies that will help you maximize your abilities. We all know how important is to get a high score on Step 2 CK to secure a competitive residency spot. If you are willing to invest in the effort, Dr. Malik will definitely help you and provide the additional push that is often needed.

-B from NY

I found out about Dr. Malik 1 week before my USMLE Step 2 CK exam. I needed some guidance on tips and strategies as I was baffled about my NBME score vs my USMLE World Self Assessment scores. He was very supportive and super helpful. He even spoke to me on Skype for 3 hours free of charge discussing how to approach questions, giving me thoughtful insight of the most basic concepts and doing some questions and listening to heart sounds audio. He shared with me many valuable resources. I really wish I had known him 2 years ago when he used to run group studies hence the cost and motivation. Dr. Malik is very kind and knowledgeable and I look forward to ask for few sessions for Step 3. Being an IMG on a very tight budget is a minus for me, Dr. Malik is trust-able and can save a lot of time and energy; if anyone one is willing to form group study would be great.

-CT from Florida

I wasn't completely thrilled with the idea of doing online tutoring and a full online course. I didn't know what to expect. A friend of mine introduced me to Dr. Malik and after the first online meeting I knew that taking his course was the right direction to get past my exam. I studied for 9 months the first time with CK and was unsuccessful. I knew I needed this help. After the first class and tutor session I was sure I made the right choice and to continue. Dr. Malik changed the way I viewed questions and medicine as a whole. He's the reason I am able to apply for residency this year. He not only taught me medicine, but the background and foundation to medicine. He took his time and made sure I understood concepts. Thank you for everything Dr. Malik. I look forward to working with you for Step 3 and becoming another one of your success stories.  

-Cathleen from New York

After studying for Step 2 CK on my own for about a year, I discovered I was not achieving the scores I needed to reach the passing mark. Amongst my frustration, I knew I needed additional help. I searched online for someone who could tutor me one on one and found Dr. Malik. Over 3 months, Dr. Malik has taught me more than how to pass a medical exam. He has taught me how to think like a physician, Dr. Malik's teaching style is uniquely structured. He sets the foundation and you do the work. Dr. Malik has taught me the importance of knowing medical terminology, using appropriate medical resources to study, and to think outside the box. He is a reputable professional who stays up to date with current medicine. I am truly grateful for all the time, energy, and commitment you have given me to make me successful on Step 2 and beyond.

-Ashley from NYC

I literally googled Dr. Malik and didn't know what to expect. I took a leap of faith because I knew I needed help getting through this exam. I was initially unimpressed by his teaching style because it's like nothing I have ever seen before but as it turns out, it may be the reason why I scored so high on the actual exam. I truly believe that I have Dr. Malik to thank for enhancing my medical terminology, for teaching me how to dissect the clinical vignette and most importantly how to figure out what the exam writer is trying to tell us. Those 3 aspects of the review course will prepare any dedicated medical student to pass the USMLE and to do it with confidence! I am forever grateful for the knowledge you instilled in me Dr. Malik, thank you!!

-Carl from Chicago

"Best USMLE Tutor" truly is an understatement. I am a student whom failed step 2 CK multiple times and I nearly gave up all hope. Then a friend of mine told me about Dr. Malik and how he helped him achieve a passing score on step 2. Honestly at first I was very skeptical, I just thought for one this is probably some scam artist and my friend merely got lucky and would've passed on his own the next time around and two I'm probably beyond help anyway. Nonetheless, I figured it couldn't hurt to at least use his free first session. Let me tell you, that was by far the smartest and best decision I have ever made in my life. After that first call, I knew Dr. Malik was indeed legit. I mean he knows his stuff. He is well informed on current medical issues and he knows just how to teach and explain the material. He is thorough, honest, very professional and straight forward. Unfortunately due to my financial limitations, I was only able to work with him very sporadically (5 sessions at most), but my score went from a 175 to a you be the judge. But believe you me, if one is serious and truly wants to pass their exam, do yourself, your wallet, and your medical career a favor and give this man a call, TRUST ME!!!! Thank you very much Dr. Malik for all your help, I look forward to working with you soon on USMLE Step 3!

He integrates humor, stories, life lessons and ideology to provide a personal understanding of medicine. Dr. Harish has rejuvenated my passion for wanting to learn medicine.

-A from Indiana

Dr. Malik is the best medical teacher a student can have!!! He gave me a free 2 hour session and not only pointed out my mistakes but also taught me how to not do these mistakes again. Since it was a free session I wasn't expecting much but I was amazed by the amount of details he provided on how I should be studying and also gave me a lot of useful free material. He has tremendous amount of knowledge and it's very generous of him to share that knowledge even in his free sessions. I absolutely recommend him to any medical student. thank you so much Dr. Malik for all your help and support.

-Kyle Dijon Hill from Houston

I was looking at several forums about USMLE Step 1, and I came across comments about Dr. Malik and his review program. Consequently I messaged him via his website, and in less than 5 minutes, I received a reply. A few days later we spoke on the phone, and I have to say, it was a wonderful experience. Dr. Malik is genuinely a kind sole. He took his time to listen, and advice me without limiting our conversation. In addition, he remained in contact with me, while sending me links to various sites which he recommended to review. THANK YOU DR. MALIK for all your help.

Dr. Malik may seem a bit intimidating at first. But after a few sessions, you’ll realize just how insightful and helpful he is. My fiance and I took a three-week course with him and met about every morning for a few hours prior to our exam. He guided our studying so that we covered high yield material and avoided miscellaneous information that students can easily get trapped in. He knew all testable material on various topics and learning from him really helped instill key concepts. Most of our tutoring was in the form of question review. We would go over questions we were stuck on, confused about or answered incorrectly. This was key in our score improvement. Both our scores increased by about 25-30 points in only three weeks. This is because Dr. Malik walked us through each question and taught us how to interpret each vignette. It helped to bridge the gap between the information we were learning in First Aid and Pathoma and the application of that information in test format. I highly recommend Dr. Malik because of his extensive knowledge of the exam, his simple explanations for complicated material, his vignette reviews and his ability to develop personalized study plans based on the individual’s strengths and weaknesses. He offers honest evaluations, critiques and advise and does not sugar coat his expectations for your exam performance, which was helpful in deciding our exam dates. Overall, I am really grateful for having him as a tutor. It would not have been possible to get that score without his help!

I would not have passed USMLE Step 1 in the two months that I had left if it weren't for Dr. Malik! When I contacted him, I had already been studying for Step 1 for eight months and my med school only allowed me two more months to pass. I already had one previous attempt and was very nervous about what resources I should use. I was so blessed to stumble across Dr. Malik's Website because he gave me not only the confidence I needed to boost my score but also the foundation that I was lacking. He provided with many clinical pearls and helped me build a stronger foundation for the pathophysiology of highly tested subjects. In addition to passing Step 1, I feel more confident about approaching third year because  not only did he help me understand medicine he taught me to see it in a different light and fall in love with medicine all over again. Dr Malik's passion for medicine reflects during his lectures. He is also very humble and caring and enjoys seeing his students succeed. Thank you Dr. Malik! You're truly amazing! For anyone who has tried it all and is struggling on any step, I would highly recommend him, it will be worth your time! I can't wait to prepare for Step 2 with him!

As someone who needed more help when studying, I found Dr. Malik to be the right person for USMLE Step. He gave me a good foundation before moving on to questions. Dr. Malik is super knowledgeable and knows why each answer is either incorrect or correct. Studying for USMLE Steps is not an overall easy process but atleast with Dr. Malik, the journey is a tad bit smoother!

To this point, I've only spent approximately 3 1/2 hours with Dr. Malik but am extremely committed to using his tutorial program to help me achieve successful completion of USMLE Steps. His kindness and generosity of his time has shown me I need to reintroduce myself to the very basics of medicine. I am currently studying numerous links he has provided, free of charge, helping me grasp the strongest of building blocks on which I may construct a concrete foundation of all of medicine. I eagerly await my continued studies with Dr. Malik and would strongly recommend Dr. Malik to all those attempting USMLE step examinations. I plan on providing continued updates on this forum to help those interested in this program to understand it's value.
