Poznan University of Medical Sciences Expands Partnership with Kaplan to Offer Students Additional Prep for Medical and Dental Licensing Exams

Poznan University of Medical Sciences (PUMS), one of Poland’s leading institutions to train aspiring doctors, is expanding its partnership with global educational services provider Kaplan to provide students with an even more powerful and diverse suite of services. Effective immediately, medical and dental students will have access to Kaplan resources from the first day of their academic journey through graduation. And beginning this spring, all third year PUMS medical students will enroll in a hybrid on-campus/live online class for the USMLE®, the multi-step licensing exam to practice medicine in the United States, to be led by Kaplan instructors. This will be in addition to the digital prep assets for the USMLE that PUMS students already have access to at the start of their third year. With the upcoming changes to Polish medical education curriculum, PUMS administrators, faculty, and students stand to benefit from resources such as Kaplan’s Educator Portal and, Quiz Builder, as well as Kaplan’s commitment to developing a Curriculum Alignment strategy for the country and PUMS.

Kaplan will also begin to provide aspiring physicians at PUMS with access to i-Human Patients by Kaplan, a leader in cloud-based, interactive patient encounter simulations for medical and nursing professionals. This addition allows students to experience safe, repeatable, fully-graded clinical patient encounters on their devices anywhere, anytime.

Additionally, as part of the expanded partnership, students will be able to prepare more comprehensively for the INBDE®, the newer exam for dental licensure in the United States, with Kaplan’s suite of digital resources, such as the INBDE Board Prep & Case Review and QBank, which includes more than 2,600 highly realistic, image-based questions. Detailed performance reports will show students their individual strengths and weaknesses.

“One of our main goals as a university has always been educating highly competent, skilled, and employable medical professionals, who meet the highest professional requirements in Poland and abroad. Over the years, the robust resources provided to us by Kaplan have proven to be very efficient in helping us achieve this goal. We have experienced a significant improvement in our USMLE Step 1 pass rates and have seen stronger results on other national licensure examinations since introducing Kaplan’s tools and courses to our international student cohort over 10 years ago,” said the director of the Center for Medical Education in English at PUMS, Professor Aleksandra Uruska. “We are looking forward to building on this success and developing our cooperation further for the benefit of our students and graduates.”

“Kaplan has a long history of working with PUMS to support Poznan students preparing for their medical and dental licensure exams and we couldn’t be more excited about expanding our resource offerings with them,” said Jason De La Rosa, international director of institutional partnerships, Kaplan. “PUMS has a proud record of achievement, boasting of one of the highest USMLE pass rates in Poland and we look forward to building on that success story by further integrating with their curriculum.”
