- APGO UWISE test bank
The APGO Undergraduate Web-Based Interactive Self-Evaluation (uWISE) exam was developed to help medical students acquire the necessary basic knowledge in obstetrics and gynecology, regardless of future medical specialty choice. The quizzes are also an excellent tool to help prepare for the NBME ob-gyn subject exam.
The uWISE questions are based on and linked to the 9th edition of the APGO Medical Student Educational Objectives. Each quiz represents one Objective and contains 10 questions for each Objective. You may choose to take a comprehensive test of 50 questions, chosen randomly from the quizzes. If you take the test multiple times, different questions will be randomly selected. In addition, there is a 100-question timed exam, similar to the NBME subject exam.
To access uWise you must create a new account using your institutional email address. All students must create their own account with a username and password of their choice. Please do not share logins.
