Dr. Adesina, CEO and founder of Smashusmle Reviews is an American trained board-certified Emergency medicine physician born and raised from Nigeria, who is committed to training international medical graduates to become licensed US physicians.
As an immigrant, Dr. Adesina faced numerous challenges navigating the complex US medical education system. Despite stellar performance in college (Bloomfield college) with a GPA of 3.88, He was told that he had no chance of passing the medical college admission tests and after barely passing the exam, he was told as a minority, he would not pass the United states medical licensing examination(USMLE).
After been rejected by 11 medical schools, he received only one medical school interview and gained admission into Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine. He was able to overcome the challenges of medical school and took both the USMLE and COMLEX examination and passed with high board scores. He wrote his first book, how to prepare for the medical boards, the secret for Success on the USMLE and COMLEX while in medical school to help other medical students to pass this rigorous exam.
After completing his emergency medicine residency, he realized there was a much bigger problem with the medical education system and he decided to fix it. Medicine is very complex and most medical students struggle to understand what is been taught in medical school. We have a shortage of doctors in America and International medical graduates (aka IMG/FMG) are filling the gap for primary care specialty in medicine to provide adequate care for Americans.
However, international medical graduates face a much tougher challenge to practice medicine in the US. As an immigrant, “I understand the challenges, IMGs face as I faced the similar issue”. Transitioning into America is big deal for immigrants, learning the language, culture and complex system pose a big challenge to IMGs.
To make matters worse, IMGs are graduated from international medical schools and in their attempt to adapt to the US medical system they lack the proper education and training it takes for them to pass the USMLE exam. The USMLE is a 3-part exam needed for all IMGS to pass to match into US residency. There is step 1, 2 CK (clinical knowledge), Clinical skills and step 3. These exams are 8-9 hours long and require extensive preparation.
Smashusmle reviews was founded by Dr. Adesina to simplify the learning process for international medical graduates. We provided personalized one-on-one coaching, advance systematic study strategies, comprehensive USMLE review (with over 700 video lectures covering 220 hours of medical lectures), flashcards and test day secret strategies to help our international medical graduates adequately prepare for the USMLE. With over 97% pass rate, we have helped over 1200 IMGs pass the USMLE. Dr. Adesina online youtube channel (youtube.com/ftplectures) has already helped 10 million healthcare providers across the globe with over 150k subscribers. Dr. Adesina’s vision is to trained 150k international medical graduates over the next 30 years to become better doctors to help take care of Americans in need of healthcare. Our mission is to train IMGS to not just pass the USMLE but ultimately gain the knowledge to become better doctors.
