At UWorld, we are deeply passionate about teaching and excelling on the licensing exams. Back in 2000, while preparing for our own licensing exams, we realized that there was a significant gap between what was taught and what was tested. We founded UWorld then with the sole principle of creating only the finest quality preparation products to fill that gap. To accomplish this, we brought together a team of exceptional medical and nursing experts who share the same passion.
At UWorld, we specialize in creating practice questions for licensing exams. That’s all we do! Because of this narrow focus, we have mastered the art of teaching and preparing students to overcome the ever-changing challenges of exams. We ensure that every course is comprehensive, evidence-based, and offers a single-point resource. In addition to providing expert preparation for challenging tests, we teach highly effective, clinically useful content that improves patient care. Our questions are deemed by many students to be the essential component in their high performance, and because of their performance, we believe we have contributed to the mass uplifting of exam standards.
Preparing for a licensing... exam is one of the most significant and stressful times in a student's life. Through our personal experience, we understand the enormity of this challenge and feel that it is our obligation to provide the best practice questions to help people excel. With so many students using our products, we believe it is both a privilege and a serious responsibility to create only those products that will make a difference. As our company grows, we remain committed to developing preparatory products of the highest standards from only the most passionate and gifted educators.
