Hello everyone, and welcome to our interview with Dr. Jason Ryan, creator of Boards and Beyond.
My first year neurology course was frustrating, confusing, and difficult. I passed, forgot everything, and life went on. Early in the fall of my second year, I watched an online video on brainstem lesions. The video was fantastic, but after I watched it, I simply put my face in my palms and let out a deep sigh. If only… If only I had discovered this twenty-six minute video during that neurology course, I could have saved myself hours of frustration, I would have actually understood the material, and I would have retained it.
I can’t think of a better way to describe Boards and Beyond – a comprehensive, clean, concise video series that teaches you just about everything you need to know for the USMLE Step 1 exam. If you know, you know. If not, get with the times and read more here. I am extremely thankful that I discovered Boards and Beyond and I can’t imagine where I’d be without it.
And because of that, we have to thank the creator, the teacher, and the voice of wisdom behind all of those helpful videos – Dr. Jason Ryan, M.D., M.P.H.
Dr. Ryan is a cardiologist at the University of Connecticut (meaning his cardiology videos are an absolute must-watch). After earning both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in chemical engineering, Dr. Ryan attended medical school at the University of Connecticut. He completed his internal medicine residency, including a year as chief resident, and his cardiology fellowship at Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. In addition to his work as a cardiologist, Dr. Ryan gives lectures to medical students at Uconn and perfects the consummate preclinical medical resource in his free time.
