January 13, 2022

Newly Expanded Study Tool Provides Personalized Learning Schedules and Solutions to Help Med School Students Facing Stress of Higher Required Scores on the USMLE Exams

Blueprint, the leading platform for innovative test prep and tutoring solutions, announces the launch of a revamped and streamlined Cram Fighter Study Planner to help medical school students create ​​personalized study plans for the high-stakes USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination), COMLEX (Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensure Examination) and Shelf Exams, which are required for medical licensure in the United States.   

Blueprint’s completely redesigned Cram Fighter Study Planner now provides additional support to students in response to the recently announced two-point increase in the passing standard for the USMLE’s Step 1 test and the increased importance of a high Step 2 score. The revitalized study planning tool follows Blueprint’s acquisition of Cram Fighter in March 2021 and further extends the company’s industry-leading adaptive learning platforms, which consistently produce best-in-class results in test prep. 

 “Blueprint is dedicated to supporting the success of medical school students, who already face daunting challenges to become physicians and who must now deal with the added stress of needing higher USMLE passing scores,” said Adam Rosh, Chief Medical Officer of Blueprint. “Our next-generation Study Planner can go a long way to alleviating some of that stress, ensuring students can stay focused on studying with our personalized study tools.”   

The Cram Fighter Study Planner is used by students at over 200 medical schools and helps more than 10,000 students prepare for the USMLE, COMLEX and Shelf exams each year. The software solution provides a detailed, daily checklist of learning goals tailored to each individual’s objectives, with new features and a streamlined experience based on feedback provided by hundreds of current medical school students and Blueprint learners.  

“For more than a decade, Blueprint has focused on helping pre-med students achieve life-changing scores,” said Matt Riley, Co-Founder and CEO of Blueprint. “The enhanced Cram Fighter Study Planner is part of our vision to support med school students with lifelong learning tools throughout their entire educational journey.”
