A free SpacedEd course
This course uses a novel and extremely-effective method of online learning termed 'Spaced Education'. Spaced education refers to online educational programs which present small amounts of educational material repeatedly via email over spaced intervals. This is an adaptive learning system which allows the content and spacing to be individualized based on your demonstrated knowledge level. Multiple randomized trials have shown that his approach both improves knowledge acquisition and bolsters long-term retention. This urology spaced education course was initially developed and proven at Harvard Medical School and has now been incorporated as a part of the American Urological Association's National Medical Student Core Curriculum.
To enroll in this free course, please do the following:
Step 1: Go to SpacedEd and register as a user.
Step 2: Enroll in the course "Core Urology for Medical Students" by B. Price Kerfoot MD EdM.
We suggest using the default adaptive spacing parameters for the course.
Step 3: Start the course! Your first questions should arrive immediately. Over the next few weeks, you will receive daily emails containing 3 spaced education items (questions) on four core urology topics: prostate cancer, screening with prostate-specific antigen (PSA), erectile dysfunction (ED), and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Step 4 (may only apply to some students): Once you have completed the course, email your course completion certificate to your surgery/urology instructor.
