A free Qstream course
This innovative online format is based upon two core psychology research findings: the spacing effect and the testing effect. Subscribers select the number and frequency of SASP questions to be sent via email to their computer or mobile device. Upon submitting answers to each question, they receive immediate feedback with correct answers, detailed answer rationales, references and how other participants answered each question. The adaptive algorithm tailors the spacing and content of the program based on their performance, and a program dashboard allows them to monitor their overall progress. CME credit will be awarded after answering all the questions once. To assist with self-study, users will also be provided with a PDF copy of the 2014 SASP when credits are claimed. 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 Qstream 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 Qstream 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.
HAVE NO FEAR — this course has been used by hundreds of students over the last 4 years and they have found it to be quick, educational and enjoyable!
