Our Story

Like many great adventures, UWorld was started in a dorm room. In 2001, during his medical residency, UWorld founder and CEO, Dr. Chandra Pemmasani, recognized the need for better study materials for the US Medical Licensing Exam. Frustrated by the poor quality and high costs of available resources, he crafted 250 high-quality, case-based questions. Initially aiming to publish them as a book, he instead shared his work in online forums. The enthusiastic feedback and demand for more led him to enlist the help of his brother and a roommate, both graduate students at Virginia Tech University. This collaboration marked the inception of USMLE World, which would later be renamed as UWorld.

UWorld began as a solution to a common problem—inadequate study materials. From our modest start in a dorm room to becoming the go-to resource for over a million nurses, our journey has been driven by a commitment to excellence and a deep understanding of our students' needs. Thanks to your feedback, we've continually evolved to provide the most effective and supportive learning solutions for high-stakes exams.

Our Proven Philosophy

We use an instructional method known as active learning that empowers you to learn from your mistakes and naturally retain important nursing concepts. It can be summarized in the following steps:

Step 1: Study

We give you the tools to take your learning into your own hands, such as exam-style practice questions, visually engaging answer explanations, customizable flashcards, digital notes, and more.

Step 2: Assess

As you study, you can assess your understanding by taking customizable quizzes based on essential nursing subjects, or full-length self-assessments that simulate a real exam environment.

Step 3: Measure

We provide you with easy-to-use reports that track your performance and help you figure out your strengths and weaknesses. You can then return to Step 1 and turn your weaknesses into strengths.
