Build ITB With Us - Help us create our app and other resources to help you study on the go!

We create all of our InsideTheBoards podcasts and our All-Audio Qbank to help you study "on the go": while you're driving, working out or whatever. Our podcasts have been streamed over 1 Million times. And for that, we have you, our Boardsinsiders, to thank. 

But...producing all this content takes both time and money. For the most part, we’ve been doing all this through investing our own *cough* Patrick’s *cough* money. ;) We’ve also made Patrick scale back his clinical work so he can devote more time to building ITB. We also make him work for free. 

Our group is small. Mostly volunteers. But we’re all committed to making the process of medical education just a little bit easier for you. Our greater mission is to help decrease your anxiety, improve your efficiency in study, and give you back time so you can spend it with your family or doing other things to achieve the elusive “work-life” balance. You won’t really hear us talk about “achieving the highest score” on your boards. Not that this isn’t a great goal, but it’s not necessarily everyone’s goal during medical school. We’re more about helping you discover and achieve your goal on board exams while maintaining perspective and keeping your priorities straight, so you can enjoy your career, keep yourself healthy, and keep your relationships strong.

In fine, we want to help you retain some of the idealism that brings us all to a career in medicine, but which sadly gets “trained out” of many of us. Medicine, as a profession, after all, is super stressful. That’s why we’re constantly thinking about ways to extinguish the flames of burnout, and come up with ways to encourage you throughout your medical education. 

So, if you enjoy listening to our podcasts, you appreciate the work we’re doing, and you want to be a part of ITB’s mission, just forget about all your med school loans for one minute, and consider giving a one-time donation or making a monthly pledge to help us build our mobile app and create additional resources to help you study on-the-go. 


Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help fund projects such as the new ITB app and additional website development.


We couldn’t (and wouldn’t) do this without you. Thank you for listening. And thank you for believing in us. Truly, we mean that, because we believe in you. And we, or at least the docs/med students on the team,  remember the incredible sacrifices required to become a doctor.
