“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 have gotten this score.
Dr. Faiza Ahmed (after receiving the results of the Oct. 2021 NAC OSCE)
"One of my friends recommended Dr. Vahid's mock to me and I took it 13 days before my exam. I took many mocks during my preparation and I can confidently say that among all the virtual mocks, his mock was the best. What usually people do while running mocks is that they become the examiner as well as the patient both by themselves, which is not the case with Dr. Vahid’s mock. While having professional SPs, he is there observing you keenly. His detailed feedback on my every station helped me a lot and I passed with Superior performance."
Dr R. Noel (after receiving the results of the Oct. 2021 NAC OSCE)
"I will never regret that I took Dr. Nilforushan's mock exam. I believe that his feedback has helped me a lot in improving my performance and getting a good score in the NACOSCE. His attention to details made me aware of my weaknesses and helped me work on them. I totally recommend his course and his mock exam is a must!"
Dr. A.G. (after receiving the results of the NAC OSCE of Oct. 2021)
"An excellent teacher and course! Dr. Vahid puts so much attention and care into making sure all his students fully understand important concepts. The weekly classes give every student an opportunity to practice and to clear any doubts about the studied material. Dr. Vahid is very patient and thorough. His knowledge and love for medicine speaks volumes. I would highly recommend this course to anyone."
Dr. Vignes (after receiving the results of the Oct. 2021 NAC OSCE)
"I would highly recommend the Mock for NAC OSCE by Dr. Vahid. I took the mock a couple of weeks before the exam and it was an eye opener. Dr Vahid was extremely helpful with exam-like scenarios and he made apt comments as well as strong suggestions to improve. I am very grateful to Dr. Vahid for helping me out with my exam preparation."
Dr. Anshu Jassal (after receiving the results of the NAC OSCE of Sep. 2020)
"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. P.M. (after receiving the results of the Oct. 2021 NAC OSCE)
"I am very satisfied with Dr Vahid's course. The cases discussed in the weekly sessions were very similar to the ones seen in the NAC OSCE exam. Furthermore, his tips regarding time management were of great help. I definitely recommend his course for those who want to succeed in the NAC OSCE."
Dr. K.P. (after receiving the results of the Oct. 2021 NAC OSCE)
"The weekly interactive learning sessions were great to learn from one another in a group setting. Dr. Vahid created a welcoming environment for learning, and facilitated active discussion amongst the participants. He strived to provide us with the latest accurate information, and best practices in Canada. On top of being a patient and knowledgable instructor, he is also a champion for the IMGs population. I would highly recommend enrolling in his preparatory programs for NAC OSCE."
"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. 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".
"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."
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."
"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."
Dr. T.V. (after taking the NAC OSCE exam of Sep. 2020)
"Hi Dr. Vahid, 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. K.H. (after taking the NAC OSCE exam of Sep. 2020)
"Dear Dr Nilforushan, 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. C. J. (after taking 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 (after receiving the results of the Sep. 2020 NAC OSCE)
"When I 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."
Dr. Mustafa Mukeef (March 2018 and even before we added weekly live sessions and case videos to the course)
"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!"
Dr. D.K. (after receiving the results of the MCCQE2 of fall 2019)
"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."
"This course is helping me a lot . It covers the main points for OSCE exam . The videos are very helpful . Dr Nilforushan is very supportive and always responds to my questions quickly. I definitely recommend this course to people who are going to take OSCE exam."
"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."
"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"
"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!"
"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."
"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."
"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."
"I do feel my timing has gotten better by using this interaction with the virtual SP guide in the course. It was a nice way of actually being able to practice saying it many times and interactively, as you say."
