What is Firecracker
I U H S F I R E C R A C K E R P R O G R A M
Firecracker and IUHS have developed a comprehensive assessment and remediation program that allows IUHS students to continually assess their comprehension and retention of critical knowledge. This new exclusive program allows for customised assessment and continual remediation throughout the student’s preclinical curriculum. Ensuring that students are ready to pass the boards when they enter the sponsorship Block.
IUHS partnered with Firecracker to curriculum map our lectures and curriculum to the NBME/USMLE /MCAT curriculum Benefit: Additional lecture support enhancements and Identification of curriculum gaps
Customised tutoring exercises We conceptualised and built out a new customised academic program using their technology called DAR (Diagnostic and Retention Exams)
This series of Assessments is followed by customised remediation exercises and insight live lectures. The DAR program provides the individual student with retention and gap analysis throughout their education and customised individual exercises with oversight
throughout the process. Goal to improve long term retention and board readiness
Why Did We Combine our efforts with Firecracker to create this new program?
We knew there had to be a better way to make sure you can identify knowledge gaps and address them using new adaptive technology.
Firecrackers score significantly higher on the USMLE Step 1 than non-Firecrackers.
