The reliable way to build your foundation of medical knowledge.

With a robust library of high-yield, interactive modules, you can quickly learn exactly what you need to know today to become a successful physician tomorrow.


Expose your learning gaps before your gaps expose you.

Med school exposes your gaps. You don’t have much time to close them before you’re learning something new. Even just the slightest crack in your foundational knowledge can make it difficult to stack on more complex concepts. That’s why you need a reliable system like Rx Bricks to help you learn, review, and assess your understanding of need-to-know information, using short, interactive modules called “bricks”.

Strengthen your foundation brick by brick:

  • Over 800 high-yield, patient-centered modules
  • “Need-to-know” topics succinctly explained with simple "clear language" explanations, often in under 20 minutes
  • Clinical correlations, real-world stories, and more
  • Visualize complex concepts and quiz yourself using interactive images
  • Assess your understanding with measurable objectives, interactive flashcards, and practice questions built into each module
  • Case Connections pull you into real-life situations, with clinical scenarios related to one or more concepts discussed in the brick, setting the stage for what you will be learning.
  • Bricks Create authoring tool that lets you build and share your own Bricks!
  • Listen to the Bricks using the Brick Voiceover feature, on web or the mobile app.
  • Access a growing collection of open education Bricks built by educators and students around the world.

Switching between resources is inefficient. Find Rx Bricks, Step 1 Qmax, Flash Facts (with Study Stream), and Express Videos in one comprehensive suite. With high-yield tools that fully integrate, your study time becomes much more efficient and effective.

Bring clarity to confusing lectures and ditch complex textbooks.

“It makes medical school topics more digestible. I get overwhelmed like a lot of my classmates. This puts the information in, well, bricks.”

“It's the best resource for intro or a refresher on subject matter. My classmates who use it swear by the concise and easy flow of the presentation. We love having it when our lecture notes are a little iffy.”

Finally master your troublesome topics.

“Helps explain difficult topics very well and has a flow that helps you retain information.”

“Bricks really breaks it down piece by piece to make me understand. There were some concepts that I was struggling with. With bricks, I was able to read the concept clearly and actively repeat back to myself.”

Get the upper edge.

“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.”

Assess your understanding along the way.

“I love the questions at the end and think it really helps to check how well you absorbed and understood that brick.”

“The built-in review questions and flashcards really enforce the concepts you just read over. I use the bricks for every class I take in medical school.”

Patient-centered. Clinically relevant.

Case Connections are brief vignettes that bookend each of our bricks. These stories challenge you with real-life clinical scenarios related to one or more concepts discussed in the brick, setting the stage for what they'll be learning. Each Case Connection poses a question that you should be able to answer once you've completed the brick. At the end, the Case Connection concludes with the resolution of the case, along with the rationale.
Clinical Correlations provide context on how the content in the brick applies to clinical situations, underscoring the relevance of what you're learning.

…the bricks are quick and easy. They have short text intermingled with images and questions to maintain active learning. I am a visual learner so having these bricks would have been very helpful to me.

There isn’t a resource like this currently out there, and I think it would be very helpful to have during both first and second year. It’s great that it matches up with First Aid, which is vital as that’s practically the STEP 1 Bible.

Every brick has objectives, flash card questions, and practice questions. Overall I enjoy the bricks a lot more than reading lecture slides or outlines since the bricks are interactive and well-integrated with the USMLE-Rx ecosystem.

Really strong resource. It’s like being in an actual class.

It is really nicely organized and interactive—I love the flashcards in the text and the easy to read menu.

I love the way they are written. It isn’t too medical and I love the scaffolding. First, they go over basics, then they go into details, and they quiz you along the way while you read as well as after each brick.

Rx Bricks are a great way to get all the information and practice for tough topics in one place.

Okay! I absolutely loved this! I am studying for Step 1 and I am using this for my hard sections (cardio being one of them) and this honestly made all the lightbulbs go off….let me tell you something! this is the VERY FIRST TIME IN MY ENTIRE LIFE that I understand what S1, S2, S3, and S4 sounds are. Like I could cry at how amazing these bricks have made my learning. like thank you! OKURRRTT!

Incredible tool! Makes it so easy to review and understand pathophysiology! Excellent

They offer a great depth of material in a concise and easy method that allows me to grasp the concept with added details that truly supplement First Aid and USMLE-Rx.


It has learning objectives and interactive questions in a concise format as well as the additional questions and flash cards associated at the bottom of the page. It’s the best concise resource around.


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, bricks offers a different edge that you can’t acquire elsewhere.


I LOVE BRICKS! It is the source I have been looking for throughout my entire first year of med school. I feel like many times class lectures are presented in disorganized ways or at levels that assume too high of a baseline understanding of the subject material. Bricks is well organized, follows a logical narrative, and provides all of the background as well as all of the detail one would need to know (and more).


Succinct, great visuals, inline interactive flashcards + review questions + additional sources at the end, notes that stay in one system integrated so well in USMLE-Rx, and a game-changer overall.


The material is at the appropriate level. It does a nice job explaining terms that are often difficult to find concise definitions for in textbooks. I also like how integrative the questions are with the reading.
