You can start at any time. The final exam is presented question by question. Wrong answers are immediately followed by the correct answer with a complete explanation of why the answer was wrong. Correct answers are followed by an explanation of why it was right, and you work your way through the process. You will either not pass at all or pass with a 100% grade (magna cum laude). We have found that this educational process takes advantage of the latest research into learning. In antiquated educational systems, if you pass the exam with a score of 80%, for example, then 20% of your knowledge base would be wrong, and that would be a liability to your clients/patients.
Successful completion of this program may increase your opportunities for entrance into a clinical MD program because of your advanced state of knowledge. Our students agree they will not actively practice medicine with patients until they pass their state medical board examinations, and all other regulations their state requires. You will still practice under the scope of your current medical license, but you may be able to add the designation Ph.D. to your name just as you add the initials from other successful board certifications. Some state boards try to limit the initials you can use after your name but have been successfully overruled by the first amendment of free speech.
