we created truelearn to help
physicians become great test takers

Preparing for licensure exams in medicine is challenging for
even the highest performing students and residents.
We help learners realize their full potential.


Dr. Joshua Courtney founded TrueLearn because he wanted every medical student to have the opportunity to Match into their desired residency program.

To fund the company, he used student loan money, sweat equity, and a lot of grit. He saw too many students limit their potential by getting low board scores after using suboptimal methods of preparation.

Today, Dr. Courtney carries the same belief that every student has the ability to become a better standardized test-taker, and has seen it realized by tens of thousands of young physicians who have used TrueLearn to reach their goals in medicine.
