Creating a Qbank session

A custom session in the Qbank is a personalized Qbank session that you can build according to your study needs. Depending on whether you have set the AMBOSS platform to Clinician Mode or Student Mode, you will find this feature under a different section of the menu. You can update your platform mode via the dropdown in the top left of the AMBOSS platform.

To create your custom study session, select Qbank > New Custom Session on the left-side menu.

Here you can create a session using the many filters we have available:

For example, you may filter by discipline, systems, or question difficulty. You also have the option to select a folder or series of folders that you personally have created with saved questions. Note the ability to name your Qbank Session via the "Automatic Title" Toggle as well- to do so, deselect the toggle and type in your preferred name in the text box under "Title".

You now also have the option to filter questions by "Marked questions only" or by "Questions with images only"! Using the Marked questions toggle, you can quickly and easily complete question sessions with only the questions you have previously "Marked." If you don't have any questions "Marked" yet, you can get started by completing Qbank sessions and selecting the "Mark" option at the bottom of the question! Mark Question

You can practice questions within the AMBOSS Study mode or in the Exam mode set up exactly like the USMLE testing environment.
