At Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU), the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment tool has set the foundation for student interactions in an academic environment. Medical students’ personality types have been used to form diverse and balanced active learning groups to facilitate a conducive and collaborative setting to learn. While the MBTI assessment tool has helped CMSRU medical students gain awareness of their learning preference, there is still a gap in understanding how MBTI results can help students maximize their learning of medical information to best prepare them for the USMLE Step 1 exam. To date, there is no published data on correlations between MBTI results and Step 1 study resources found to be most effective for learning.
