At UWorld, we are deeply passionate about teaching and excelling on the high-stakes exams. Back in 2000, while preparing for our own high-stakes 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 high-stakes 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.
