About StatPearls

StatPearls includes a growing list of free, online, peer-reviewed and PubMed-indexed reviewed activities and affordable adaptive learning questions with explanations. We provide healthcare professionals with an adaptive learning approach to identify knowledge deficits and quickly review to acquire or refresh medical knowledge. Our goal is to provide health professionals with the educational tools needed to identify weaknesses and stay current. The StatPearls Knowledge Base is available in Apps, eBooks, and online Learning Management System covering over 470 medical specialties.


StatPearls offers health professionals in medicine, nursing, and allied health the most comprehensive database of multiple-choice questions with explanations and review activities ever developed. The content is updated daily through a multi-step peer review process. Article activities are published free on the internet and questions are available on Apps, eBooks, and in an online Learning Management System for a nominal fee.
