The libraries currently purchase individual UWorld subscriptions for PLFSOM medical students at two points during each student's time in medical school.  

MS2 students will receive a passcode for 180 day access to the Step 1 QBank and 2-week access to self-assessment in early November.  However, students have the option of waiting to activate their subscriptions for up to 2 months.

MS3 students will receive 360 day access to the Step 2 CK QBank and 2-week access to self-assessment in early May.  However, again students have the option of waiting up to 2 months to activate their subscriptions.

Information about accessing individual subscriptions is emailed directly to eligible students by the Managing Director of the Libraries. She will send out a global email to students who are eligible when the inital logins are mailed directly from UWorld, so students can check their spam mail for the notice. This initial email message will provide the log-in information and the code to activate individual student subscriptions.
