A Perfect Blend of
Medicine, Education and Technology

Our Philosophy

High-stakes examinations are a part of medicine. They determine outcomes, drive careers, and grant certification. Preparing for them is hard. Time is limited. TrueLearn leverages the 'testing effect' to turn effort into results to make learning fun, impactful, and permanent. We believe there is no such thing as a "poor standardized test-taker". We believe that, instead, individuals have flawed approaches to exam preparation. Today, we challenge you to engage in active learning and develop your full potential to perform on standardized exams.
