DALLAS (May 21, 2020) ─ Finalists and winners for The EdTech Awards 2020 have been announced to a worldwide audience of educators, technologists, students, parents, and policymakers interested in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere.

This year’s finalists and winners were judged based on various criteria, including pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value, and potential. UWorld was recognized for its continued industry innovation and digital solutions.

Dr. Chandra Pemmasani, who built UWorld from an idea he had in his dorm room into a company that helps train 150,000 doctors and 200,000 nurses a year, was named a finalist in The EdTech Leadership Awards category of “Founder/CEO.” UWorld’s Clinical Med Math, an affordable, digital tool that allows nursing students to study medication dosage anytime and anywhere, earned a finalist spot in The EdTech Cool Tool Awards category of “Test Prep Solution.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized by EdTech Digest for our efforts to help students study and learn,” said Pemmasani. “UWorld was my dream, and we will continue to improve and expand our services to support today’s learners as they work to achieve their dreams.”

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, The EdTech Awards is the largest recognition program in all of the education technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech—and those who soon will be.
