My name is Ricardo Gonzalez, I’m a general physician, entrepreneur and currently living in El Salvador in Central America, Back in 2007 along with my brother Roberto we decided to create this website. After finishing my career as a general physician I began to think about the possibility of taking a postgraduate training program in pediatrics in the United States, I’ve always loved to work with kids and it’s something that comes easily for me that was when I first started to prepare, gathered all the information available and took the USMLE exams.
I decided that this challenge could be tackled without the need to live in the U.S. that is why I started to prepare on my own, taking in the experience of others and using the most currently used books and courses.
In my experience through all the USMLE STEPS I learned a lot about the whole process that takes to register,apply, what should be study and what you shouldn’t, the contents of each exam, the form that this information IS used in a question, and maybe the most important thing was to learn what is not relevant for the evaluation, also learned a lot about the different courses available and the way different people prepare for each exam. Also I learned that is possible to prepare for the exams by yourself saving money but most importantly saving time!!!
