Manipal U launches tutorial solution for USMLE

Our Bureau

Mangalore , Jan. 6

MANIPAL Universal Learning Pvt Ltd (Manipal U), a constituent of Manipal Education and Medical Group, has launched a tutorial solution for USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination).

Addressing presspersons here on Friday, Mr Rajen Padukone, Executive Director of Manipal U, said that the tutorial solution is designed to help students prepare for the Step I and Step II of USMLE, through interactive classroom sessions.

"Though a large number of doctors in the country appear for the USMLE every year, only 60 per cent of them are successful. This makes the right kind of preparation vital. Our USMLE testing and tutorial solutions are comprehensive tools comprising concise, flexible and intensive learning material. These solutions are designed by practising clinicians and medical educators," he said.

In the three-month tutorial programme, students will have access to a large data bank of medical questions, detailed explanations and interactive data such as images, tables and diagrams.

Mr Padukone said that students enrolled in the tutorial have exclusive 24X7 access to the customised `Manipal U - Exam-Master Online USMLE Testing Solution.'

He said that Manipal U has set up learning centres at Kasturba Medical College (KMC) in Mangalore and Manipal to conduct the tutorials.

Dr C.V. Raghuveer, Dean of Mangalore KMC, was present on the occasion.
