What Students Say

Sketchy is one of the best resources for a medical student (or other student! see their products) can have! It is excellent in providing a big "picture" of topics that may otherwise be difficult to commit to memory or provide brain space for. If you are hesitant, please know that I had a 4.0 for the entirety of my second year in school and did well on Step 1 because of this website!! I even am able to answer questions on rounds/with my attendings because the memory devices stick so well.

Sketchy Medical is the future of medical education... After watching a single video for one of the topics in Sketchy Medical, I was easily able to memorize an additional 20-30 facts without even trying.

I cut down my study time at least 30% and had fun while studying. I owe my Step 1 success to Sketchy. I’m about to take Step 2 CK, and I was able to remember an incredible amount of information in about eight weeks of dedicated prep. Start early!
Sketchy Medical is the best resource I have used thus far in med-school. I honestly do not know what I would do without it and boast about it to everyone I know.
