New Study Guide for Physician Assistant Students Guarantees Success on PANCE Certification Exam

8/9/2017 3:50:00 AM

PHOENIX – August 9, 2017 – Picmonic, a company that has helped more than 300,000 medicine and nursing students unlock their potential and achieve their goals by making learning the impossible, possible, today announced Picmonic for Physician Assistant students. A new study tool that is uniquely designed for today’s generation of students, Picmonic transforms forgettable text into memorable characters and fun stories. Starting from day one of school, students can use Picmonic to remember more, excel in school, score higher on exams and, ultimately, pass the PANCE certification exam. In fact, Picmonic is so confident that students who study with the new tool will pass the licensure exam that it will refund their money if they don’t.

Picmonic's "picture mnemonics" are based in science and designed to be better than flashcards, by leveraging well known memory techniques–dual coding, von restorff effect and picture superiority effect–proven ways to increase retention and recall. Picmonic offers comprehensive coverage of more than 1,300 topics and 10,000 facts and tailors the learning by delivering auto-adaptive quizzes that use spaced repetition to help students improve in areas where they are struggling, and maximize long term retention of everything they learn.  As a  result, students gain a deeper understanding of topics by easily connecting related facts. See how Picmonic works.

Created by medical professionals, Picmonic’s results are research-proven. In a randomized, double-blind, controlled study, the Picmonic Learning System was compared to text-based review material and found that students saw up to a 331 percent improvement in memory retention.

After reviewing the study tool, Bathri Vajravelu, Ph.D., MMBS, MPH, assistant professional school of physician assistant studies at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, said, “Picmonic can serve as a good supplement to our lectures. It brings all relevant content to one place.”

Across the country at Idaho State University, Jared Papa, MPAS, PA-C, clinical assistant professor and service learning coordinator in the physician assistant program, reviewed the study tool and said, "Picmonic is a great tool for visual learners. It is creative and innovative."

Physician assistant students can try Picmonic for free.  Pricing for premium plans, offering unlimited access to all Picmonics, starts at $23.99 per month and goes as low as $10.99 based on the length of the subscription. For more information, visit www.picmonic.com.
