Kaplan’s Test Preparation Tools Combine with OnlineMedEd’s Proven Approach to Instruction to Cultivate a Better Experience for Students and Shape Them into Better Doctors.

This joining of forces combines Kaplan’s industry-leading test preparation question bank (Qbank) with an innovative multi-modality medical learning platform by OnlineMedEd that is currently being incorporated into the curriculum and teaching methodology of dozens of medical schools.

Healthcare professionals have always been a precious resource, perhaps now more than ever, and many more will be needed to address the health challenges of the future. To meet this need, Kaplan and OnlineMedEd are pleased to announce that they are entering into a strategic partnership with the goal of combining their respective strengths to help more students get through the rigors of medical school and start serving their communities.

This joining of forces combines Kaplan’s industry-leading test preparation question bank (Qbank) with an innovative multi-modality medical learning platform by OnlineMedEd that is currently being incorporated into the curriculum and teaching methodology of dozens of medical schools. This best-of-all-worlds study toolset will empower medical students throughout their education and give them an advantage on their USMLE® exams, the set of licensing exams necessary to pass before practicing medicine.

“When Kaplan revamped their already impressive qbanks, it was clear to us that they were the best option for students requiring a robust qbank in the months before the exam,” said Dustyn Williams, OnlineMedEd’s Lead Educator. “A partnership that paired our strengths made sense. By being able to leverage our PACE learning methodology which incorporates written materials and video lectures alongside ways to challenge and reinforce during the learning acquisition phase, with Kaplan’s robust test prep questions, students are going to have more depth in their knowledge and be better prepared for their exams.”

“Question practice is an incredibly effective technique, and we’ve recently overhauled our question bank resources to maximize learning outcomes,” said Phil Teelander, executive director, medical programs, Kaplan. “We know that medical students rely on a variety of components to accelerate their education, leveraging several providers based on their strengths. We’re excited to pair our new assessment assets with the engaging lectures and written materials that students really appreciate from OnlineMedEd. We’re coupling two effective resources to maximize student study time and improve student performance.”

Starting today, whenever a student purchases an annual subscription to OnlineMedEd’s Premium curriculum, they will also automatically receive a Partner Promo Code worth $129 to be applied towards Kaplan’s newly revamped qbank for board preparation.

An annual subscription to OnlineMedEd’s premium content includes their comprehensive slate of instructional videos, all ad-free, as well as the ability to access and download audio files, lecture notes, whiteboard graphics, flashcards, clinical cases, and more. More than 200,000 unique learners currently leverage the platform each month for clinical education and the company has recently invested millions of dollars and tens of thousands of hours into building the world's most robust and unique basic sciences curriculum.

Kaplan qbanks have recently received substantial updates, including a complete revision of all questions, explanations, and simulated exams; hundreds of brand new questions; a brand new mobile app; enhanced answer explanations including 3D images, links to videos, and step-by-step strategy overviews; and an updated interface identical to the test.

By connecting Kaplan’s formidable test preparation tools with OnlineMedEd’s comprehensive slate of learning acquisition offerings, more medical students have a chance to excel as they progress through medical school and become the life-saving doctors the world needs.
