Powerful Learning Loop to Support Basic Sciences Knowledge Acquisition, Retention, and Application
TrueLearn is excited to announce that we have integrated Picmonic into our USMLE® digital learning and analytics platform, creating a powerful learning loop to better support students and programs. With 2,000+ audio-visual mnemonic lessons, covering major medical school content, topics, and 23,000+ need-to-know facts, medical students can master the preclinical curriculum and retain what they learn 331% longer while improving exam scores by 55%.1
About the TrueLearn-Picmonic Learning Loop
TrueLearn and Picmonic form a powerful learning loop that combines audio-visual mnemonics, spaced repetition, and low-stakes practice recall to drive effective, efficient learning in medical education. Students master complex concepts with ease with audio-visual mnemonics then strengthen knowledge application and engage in deeper learning as they take USMLE®-style practice questions and review detailed rationales with TrueLearn.

Supporting Faculty, Deans, Department Chairs, and Clerkship Directors
The TrueLearn-Picmonic learning loop not only helps students establish a strong foundation of basic science knowledge, build schema, and engage in higher-order thinking and more complex learning but also supports educators. With key curricular support tools and a powerful data analytics engine, medical school educators can easily integrate USMLE®-style questions, active learning activities, and assessments within their curriculum to:
- inform curricular decisions to meet educational goals,
- identify at-risk students early,
- track remediation progress,
- uncover performance trends, and
- support basic science knowledge acquisition and retention.
