Reviews and feedback about our NAC OSCE & MCCQE2 courses

(our course even did not include weekly online sessions when many of the following testimonials were written)

  • Dr. Motahareh Vameghestahbanati (after receiving the results of the Oct. 2021 NAC OSCE)

    Hi future NAC OSCE candidates! I passed my exam this October with the score of 1449 which is 3 Standard deviation above the pass score. One day during my preparation period that I was not sure how to begin, I was very lucky to come across this website and get to know Dr. Vahid’s course. Dr. Vahid has a world-class teaching style, not only teaches you what matters in the exam, but most importantly he gifts you the right approach to any possible station! He provides very meticulous and detailed constructive feedback continuously to help you become a more competent version of yourself not only for this exam but for the day to day medical practice! I strongly recommend his course and Mock exam since this experience is very similar to exam day and will make you super confident and relaxed! All the best everyone!!

  • Dr. Emalka Fernando (after receiving the results of the Oct. 2021 NAC OSCE)

    Dear Dr. Vahid, I passed the NAC examination with an above 2SD score. Your NAC course helped me immensely to prepare and the weekly classes were so informative and helpful. Thank you for the guidance you gave me through my NAC preparation and if it wasn't for your course, I would not get this score. Thank you so much once again.

  • Dr. Anshu Jassal (after receiving the results of the Sep. 2020 NAC OSCE)

    I am so grateful that I got a chance to prepare for NAC with Dr. Vahid. The online mock exam was really simulating. This was the platform where I practiced with Canadian Standardized Patients. This really helped me to feel so confident about my preparation. Dr. Vahid's extensive feedback helped me to work on my weak areas. I passed this exam with Superior Performance. I still feel I don't have enough words to thank you. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you so much.

  • Dr. Rubeena Anjum (June 2021)

    I would like to take the pleasure of sharing my experience with Dr. Vahid. I have registered for the MCCQE2 exam. I have found Dr. Vahid course extremely helpful and useful. Dr. Vahid is highly knowledgeable, provides the highest level of medical information and clinical skills. The MCCQE2 course of Dr. Vahid definitely helps with the exam and also improved overall in our clinical practice. I am a Practicing American board certified physician, Hospitalist in the USA. After attending Dr. Vahid's course , I have noted improvement in my communication skills and dealing with my patients. I am thankful to Dr. Vahid and strongly recommend all his courses.

While I have heard of/seen other good courses, what makes Dr. Vahid's course above the rest, is that it prepares you how to think systematically and scientifically rather than spoon feeding common scenarios. It has guided me on the way how to approach, perceive, comprehend, and dissect a clinical scenario. It is an all-encompassing course, from how to prepare yourself mentally for the exam, until how to wrap up an encounter, and the beauty of it is that is not merely for the exam, it is a preparatory class for real-life clinical practice in Canada! Of course Dr. Vahid will give you the plan, the method of thinking, the analysis tools, and how to shape your skills to use such tools, but the student has to immerse himself/herself in this course and tries to fully grasp the enriching materials in it, not an easy task, but when you can fully grasp the concept of how to go through the exam according to Dr. Vahid, your life will be easier! I am writing this while I have just gone through the NAC OSCE exam, and while I do not know my result until the date of this writing, results don't matter, whatever happens, is an individual factor, but what I know is, this course helped me to go through the exam with a piece of mind and heart of steel!

Feedback of some of our students who wanted to be anonymous

  • Dr. Rabab E. (Nov. 2020)

    I can’t recommend this course enough. It’s very different from any other preparatory courses out there. It's the only non materialistic course. Dr. Vahid provides up to date guidance based on Canadian references. The course content is very much related to the real exam. Many practicing doctors who are taking the course for MCCQE2 attend the free weekly sessions which really elevate the discussion caliber. It offers a great opportunity to those who are taking NAC OSCE to learn and interact with QE2 takers. The software of the course is very advanced, and the content is organized and very easy to remember. Interacting with a virtual patient is very unique in this course and gives a great chance to master your communication skills.

  • Dr. W.D. (Nov. 2020)

    Dr. Vahid's course is one of the best courses available to prepare for both NAC OSCE and MCCQE2. I tried two courses before this and they didn't help as I felt that they were commercial courses aiming to collect money from candidates with no real value. This course is affordable, very helpful, very organized and convenient. I like the pre recorded lectures which I was able to refer to at any convenient time for me. The free weekly practice sessions was a good opportunity to review cases, discuss with colleagues and find study partners. Dr. Vahid was happy to help and to answer questions honestly and to the best of his knowledge. I learned many useful clinical techniques and skills which can be applied not only during exams but in real life practice. I strongly recommend this course for any IMG preparing for those exams.

  • Dr. K.H. (after the NAC OSCE of Sep. 2020)

    I would like to start off by saying thank you, and that my exam was a success. The exam was quite a stressful ordeal, and I feel that your course was extremely helpful in preparing me for the process, as well as the content of it. I am grateful you were kind enough to allow me to join the course for a temporary amount of time at the last minute, and I'm especially grateful about how useful the course itself and live classes were.

  • Dr. T.V. (after the NAC OSCE of Sep. 2020)

    I wanted to thank you for the thorough and dedicated approach you used to create and run this course. The materials are comprehensive yet concise and weekly sessions give everyone a chance to practice as well as learn from peers. It was very helpful and enjoyable experience for me.

  • Dr. M.S. (after receiving the results of the NAC OSCE of Sep. 2020)

    Thank you Dr. Nilforushan! Your mock exam not only helped me build up my confidence, but also really helped me in terms of gaining experience in dealing with different cases. The thorough and detailed feedback I received also helped me polish my skills and I got a pass with superior performance! I will definitely recommend Dr. Nilforushan's mock to whoever wants to prepare for NAC."

  • Dr. C.J. (after the NAC OSCE of Sep. 2020)

    I finished the NAC today. Just want to thank you for your guidance through your course material and prompt responses to my questions. I believe it was very important for my preparation. I felt well prepared today throughout the exam and had no problems with the time.

  • Dr. Amir Farrokhi (Nov. 2020)

    When I had decided to continue my path throughout MCC exams and was about to start preparing for NAC- OSCE , I was totally confused about how I could have found reliable and useful references. I’d heard about some classes and experienced one of them but honestly it hadn’t helped me to find the path. Finally, I started Dr. Nilforushan’s course and it helped me to catch my ideal method to organize my approach to the whole exam. He had successfully passed all MCC and USMLE exams before and had a comprehensive knowledge about them so his guidance was really helpful. Furthermore, his unique personality and attitude was the strongest point of the course as he helped me as a real friend without any hesitation. I owe him forever for his genuine favors.

  • Very well thought out and in-depth prep course. I would recommend this to anyone taking the NAC who, like many, is struggling to find material on what the exam is even like, plus how to prepare for it. Very glad I found this course when I did.

  • Videos were really well done and it's also very useful to have PowerPoint versions as well as slideshows. Very useful acronyms and approach to various aspects of the exam. Highly recommend the course.

  • I received my NAC results today at 84. Just thought you may have been curious. Thanks for your help! Your course provided me with a very good structure and orderly way of conduction my patient interview and this was a point I was very weak on prior to the course.

  • I have started the course and am finding it extremely helpful. I will be sure to refer my friends to you as well.

  • Dr. J.L.

    I found out yesterday that I passed the NAC, thank you so much for your help with preparing, it made a huge difference!

  • your course was very helpful and helped me achieve a much higher score than my previous attempt. Thank you very much for all your kindness and generosity throughout the exams.

  • I do feel my timing has gotten better by using this interaction with SP guide. It was a nice way of actually being able to practice saying it many times and interactively, as you say.

  • Dr. D.K. (after the MCCQE2 of fall 2019)

    Right after the MCCQE2 exam in fall 2019: thank you for the videos and the documents that you have prepared for the MCCQE2. I found it really very helpful. Right after receiving the results: I wanted to share with you the joy of the pass result in my MCCQE2 exam. I just recited the message from MCC who confirms that. Thank you very much for the very useful and efficacious review course you have created.

  • Your course was very helpful to me in both NAC and Q2 study. I have tried multiple live and online courses in the past years and I can confidently say that your course is one of the best courses. Thanks again

  • There are many strong points in your course including videos and documents. First of all, It is comprehensive. You can find every necessary point in that. Second it is not just memorization. You will be trained based on a format that you need not only for the exam but also for the future real world. I can say, I experienced the best history taking system ever I have seen in the last 3 years. A very comprehensive, still “to the point and knowledgeable system” that you can use it for every given case. That is not a generalization system like a couple of other systems. You can feel that you are confident (not confused) and the fluency of system is controlled by your medical knowledge. Another benefit of your system is in the counseling area. The third powerful area in your course was the workshop and the videos for physical examination. There was the best, unique opportunity for me to have a reliable source for this area of exam. The different videos specially neuro physical examination were fantastic.

  • Prior to the course, my SP said I was quite nervous, panicky, and I didn't know what to do. Yesterday, he said my interaction with him was natural, empathetic, and not rushed. He felt he was really on the other side as a patient. He couldn't even tell me which areas of my communication skills to improve. So that's a wonderful sign! Thank you!

  • Great curriculum for building a foundation on how to approach the exam. For me having studied for USMLE majority of the videos were redundant but having said that I strongly believe for IMGs who have studied outside of the European or American systems this course would have been more helpful. I know majority of the Caribbean, polish or Irish meds schools have OSCE in their curriculum but individuals from Asian or middle eastern countries or individuals who are not as solid on their English this course would have done wonders. It would have a must have resource way better than the other course on the market because it builds an approach rather then having them memorize a few scenarios.

  • I got the NAC OSCE result today. I scored 82. I hope that this is a good score... Thank you for all, Keep in touch God bless you

  • excellent resource to prepare for majority of the exam but it would be helpful to have more full-length cases. Thank you Dr. Vahid you were excellent and very helpful. Course comment: Thank you for helping us improve the course. More full-length cases will be added to the course soon.

  • Practice scenarios in real time would be helpful. Course comment: Thank you for helping us improve the course. We have added free live weekly sessions and paid live online interactive sessions to our services (1-on-1 or small group with the instructor, or practice sessions with online SPs or study partners under our supervision). We have been running in-person workshops as well.

  • Your course definitely prepared me in several ways: 1. I learnt a better and more organized manner to approach the encounters. 2. The clinical examination videos were very helpful. Your videos on the joint exams were complete, unlike several other videos on YouTube. A huge thanks to you and your patient. 3. As I had learnt in your course, I wrote down 3 to 5 differentials after reading the questions at each station. This was really helpful for the post-encounter questions. 4. The ROS lessons were very helpful. I took notes from your lessons and wrote down all the ROS questions for each system (incl. ped, OBG, psych). I was able to recollect well and ask these relevant questions at each station. 5. The differential diagnoses list was very helpful. I created index cards from your list and revised them regularly. I also added more conditions to my list towards the end.

  • Dr. Nilforushan's online course was really useful and professional, physical examination section was unique, Hx taking part was also very complete and in detail.

  • Thanks for your kindness and all your support with your online courses

  • Thank you, the course was very helpful. I passed the NAC OSCE and I wanted to thank you for your help

  • I must applaud your attention to detail and the work you have put into this course.

  • I'm happy with my result. I really appreciate your support and help.

  • I think have a section of a few practice scenarios with full follow up questions should be added in the future and the program grows. Face time was great! Great course!! Course comment: Thank you for helping us improve the course. More practice scenarios with full follow up questions will be added to the course soon.

  • the course is excellent, but being in a study group and practicing the cases are very important. Course comment: Thank you for your helpful feedback. We have been emphasizing the importance of practicing cases in both our beginner's course (free) and our pre-recorded course. We have also mentioned that self practice and recording yourself (audio or video) and reviewing them can be very helpful when there is no study partner. To help you find study partners, we had created NAC OSCE Network and MCCQE2 study partners Facebook groups as well. As of Nov. 2019, we have also added a free live weekly conference calls to connect our subscribers. We have also created a booking system by which you can practice with study partners or SPs under our supervision.

  • "I found this course extremely helpful. It helped me to ask focus history, perform focus PE, answer management questions and response to the patient concerns. I took my step 2 cs exam but Nac OSCE exam is very different in term of timing, management questions, counselling and present of the examiner in the room. All of the above factors make it way harder than the step 2 cs. When preparing for NAC OSCE, I was facing many challenges but this course has removed those hurdles. Thank you Dr. Vahid for preparing such an amazing course.

  • I am very thankful that I registered in your course because you are making my study much easier and more focused. I really wish that I knew about your course before. I am recommending your course to all doctors that I meet and to my friends. You are such a very helpful person. I wish you all success in your life.

  • kindly accept my admiration with your enthusiasm for helping people. Thank you from all my heart for your support.

  • I especially like d Review of Systems in ur course.

  • Dr. Ben Warren MD/PhD (after receiving the results of the NAC OSCE of Sep. 2020)

    Vahid's course (in-person workshops and online mock exam) gave me the foundation I needed to pass my NAC OSCE exam. He is by far the best instructor on the West Coast. He teaches very high yield case scenarios that are guaranteed to be on the exam. He has developed a system that works!
