About Us

At UWorld, we build exceptional content that makes really hard stuff easy to understand. We reduce complexity in our explanations and our delivery to benefit students, specifically to help them succeed on their high-stakes exams. Our content experts are accomplished doctors, nurses, business professionals, and educators, and we believe it’s our duty to create the highest quality educational content on the market.

Call us geeks. Call us nerds. Call us overly obsessive. But make no mistake about it, when you have a make-or-break exam, our experts have made us the company you can rely on. We are the most user-friendly test prep company on the market, and we’ll help you know what to expect—and how to succeed—on test day.

Meet Dr. Chandra Pemmasani

What started as a passion project in my college dorm room has blossomed into a thriving company that students and professionals turn to when they require the best learning tools to prepare them for their pivotal exams. In 2001, while doing my medical residency, I began writing case-based learning questions for the US Medical Licensing Exam because the study resources I found at the time were poor quality and too expensive. I originally tried to publish the 250 questions I’d written as a book, but after posting them in online forums, I received an overwhelming response and demand for more. I recruited my brother and his roommate, who were graduate students at Virginia Tech University, and USMLE World (later renamed to UWorld) was born.

Today we have a growing company that leads the market in medical licensing exam prep and we now offer much more. The hallmark of UWorld is an obsession with quality and premier answer explanations. It’s the dedicated work of talented employees who are passionate educators and industry experts that have helped me create the highest quality educational tools for high-stakes exams.

Partnering with organizations like Feed the City and Irving ISD, we do our best to be grateful and responsible corporate citizens. These partnerships allow us to feed those in need, provide free healthcare, and equip local students with school supplies. These are some of the small ways in which we give back and show appreciation for the DFW area we call home.
