Med school is challenging. Learning the material doesn’t have to be.

Confused or overwhelmed by lectures and overly complex textbooks? If so, you’re not alone. That’s why the team behind First Aid created the high-yield, multimedia learning modules—Rx Bricks—to be concise, interactive, and easy to understand and apply.

Gain a comprehensive understanding of General Microbiology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, and more—faster and easier than ever.

We intentionally break down need-to-know topics into digestible Bricks with interactive illustrations, mnemonic devices, clinical correlations, case connections, and plenty of practice questions. This means you can absorb critical information more easily, apply what you’re learning to real-world scenarios, and ace your exams with confidence.

“Well written concise material that hits on all the important topics. There is nothing quite like Bricks out there that summarizes material in a manner comparable to how a student might hope to review the foundations of their first two years of medical school. In a market filled with videos and gimmicks, Rx Bricks offers a different edge that you can’t acquire elsewhere.”


High-Yield Content

Measurable Learning Objectives at the beginning and end of each brick help you track your progress. Plus, each Brick contains an at-a-glance Summary of the most essential information. And most can be covered in 20 minutes.


Interactive Flashcards

Reinforce your learning with flashcards and mnemonics that help you retain more information.


Interactive Images

Quiz yourself as you learn using detailed, interactive illustrations and clinical images incorporated throughout each Brick.


Built-In Practice Questions

At the end of each Brick, challenge yourself with built-in review questions. Each item explains exactly why the answer is correct and why the other choices are incorrect.


Fully Integrated Tools

Take your comprehension to the next level with relevant First Aid Facts*, Qmax questions*, high-yield Flash Facts flashcards*, and engaging Express Videos* at the bottom of every Brick. When all your tools work together, you can cut back on how often you’re flipping between resources, and transform your limited study time into high-yield learning sessions.

“I usually find myself wanting to know more detail from the entries in First Aid and I’m usually always able to find the explanations in Bricks [courses]. The diagrams are excellent; they really help me visualize the concepts. The questions at the end are excellent to help test my understanding. Overall, I would recommend Bricks [courses] to my classmates because it’s easy reading and only the most pertinent information is left in, rather than textbooks which lose me with too much information.”

“It’s very well organized. And daunting topics are created in a very easy way to learn—and quickly!”

“It is the best. So much valuable information. Bricks is a concoction of Harrison, Robbins, Goodman & Gilman, Grey’s and many more books which I don’t have to spend hours reading because Bricks has made it so easy. I’ve started to love studying…which is a big achievement in itself.”

“It’s short, crisp and clear. No nonsense stuff, absolutely high yield. Love it.”

“Rx Bricks are amazing! They are organized so that, even if you don’t remember anything on a certain topic, you will be able to refresh your memory, fill in any gaps, and expand on the knowledge you already have. Having videos and links to the First Aid pages is unmatched. And finally, being able to look at flash cards and take practice questions on the covered topic, solidifies the information in your mind.”

“Rx Bricks remains the easiest to understand collection of high yield concepts for the USMLE exams I’ve come across.”

“Those who are just starting their journey for USMLE Step 1, I do highly recommend this because First Aid is an absolute essential, but oftentimes it gets quite boring and difficult to understand. First Aid tends to give information in a very few lines which sometimes needs more. So at that point, for strong basic understanding [Rx Bricks] is quite a great help. In addition to that, it provides audio clips and different histological and specimen images that often show up in examination.”
