What If You Could Pass USMLE Step 1 With Confidence Without The Stress, Doubt, And Burnout?

This Is The Biggest Test Of Your Life

There’s no secret that USMLE Step 1 matters and matters a lot for your future!

It can determine your future residency programs, specialty that you practice, where you have the options of living, and even how much money you make!

Take a look at this graph.

Step 1 Score You Need


To be even considered for a competitive specialty and residency program, a score even as high as a 240 may not be high enough! 

And a bad score? 

Good luck. You’re stuck with constant stress for the rest of med school worrying about matching into a residency program! 

Update: This is before the test was pass/fail but imagine being the student who doesn’t pass the exam!

You may even have to choose a less desirable specialty or program to apply to 

No wonder so many medical students are stressed when it comes to Step 1!

And with that stress comes many questions:

  • What’s the best way to study for USMLE Step 1?
  • What resources should I be using and how should I be using them?
  • When should I start studying to get the best score possible? 
  • What topics should I focus on most of my time? 
  • What mistakes should I avoid to get the best score?
  • I’m not seeing progress – what should I do? 
  • What study schedule should I use? 
  • What study methods give me the best long-term retention?
  • How do I deal with test anxiety? 
  • How should I approach test day, breaks, food, and taking the exam?
  • What the best way to approach a Step 1 question? Especially the hard ones?
  • How do I juggle my classes and board studying?
  • Should I be using a pre-made deck? If so how? Which one? 
  • And so much more…
But what if you could study for step 1 with a plan and without the stress? 

What if you could feel confident with the skills that top performing students use to earn pass Step 1 with confidence!

About Me

Personal Photo

Hi, I’m Dr. Lakshya Trivedi

I am the founder of TheMDJourney.com which I started as a 2nd-year med student to help others succeed in medical school with the excess stress. Over the past 3 years I’ve coached and taught students on how to perfect their studying, productivity, board prep, and succeed on their clinical rotations.

I’ve both succeeded and failed, and all the while I’ve charted my progress to find what works and what doesn’t in medical school. 

I’ve heard the same struggles from aspiring doctors time and again: “I don’t know how to study.” or “I don’t know how to properly prepare for Step 1”, or the biggest one, “I’m afraid I’m not good enough to be a doctor.”

Trust me – I’ve had these same struggles. But through trial and error, I perfected my study systems, crushed my board exams, and got into my #1 residency program for Internal Medicine!

Step 1 Score My Step 1 Score

I want you to learn from my successes and failures. I’ve poured these experiences into the Step 1 Academy course to give you insight into study strategies that truly work from start to finish to earn you a top score!

I’m here to help perfect how to study, what resources to use, and teach you how to build on your weakness so you can walk into test day with confidence! I’m here to help you—let’s get started!

Learn The Step-By-Step To Pass step 1 With Confidence!

It is a thorough step-by-step approach of attacking the STEP 1. Having lifetime access is an extremely useful feature of Dr. Lakshya Trivedi’s STEP 1 Academy course. I started watching the videos 3 months before Dedicated, while I was in pre-clinicals, to get a general overview of Dr. Trivedi’s approach for Dedicated. As I got closer and closer to now being in Dedicated rewatching the videos is a greater refresher of strategies I need to keep practicing. Dr. Lakshya Trivedi prevents me from getting derailed and keep my eye on the prize.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you consider yourself a struggling student? Stressed about Step 1?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then you are exactly the type of student I made this course for!

The goal of Step 1 Academy is to teach you exactly what to do and what not to do so you can succeed without the excess stress.

I hope you know by now that I do this to help as many students as I can. Thus I’m not going to lie to you and tell you that this course is for everyone.

It’s not.

Here are a few examples of who the course is not a good fit for.

  • Students who are already scoring 255+ on practice exams. You’re doing great already and likely don’t need to change your study approach.
  • Students are less than 2 weeks away from their test day. This may not be enough time for your to go through the course material and also prep. 
  • International students who are trying to study for an exam similar to Step 1. These strategies are specific to students taking USMLE Step 1. 

These have been a few examples where I’ve told readers not to purchase the course. If you want my honest opinion, feel free to send me an email and I’d be happy to let you know if you’d be a good fit!

If you’re tired of constantly looking for exactly how to prepare for Step 1 then this course will help you do just that!

I always get the price dilemma. Honestly I try to keep the costs low to appeal to the masses, but I know it can still be a struggle.

To help we also offer a split payment options over 2 months which you sign up for at checkout!

Also remember you have 30 days (within our refund policy) to request a refund if you’re not satisfied with your purchase! No questions asked!
