2020 witnessed the evolution of the first pandemic for generations and the most serious since the Flu pandemic of 1918. The novel coronavirus outbreak has exposed the vulnerabilities of a globally interconnected population with the menacing threat of a novel pathogenic virus. In the absence of treatments or vaccines, 21st Century humankind has relied on stringent social isolation and hand-washing to combat the infection. Whilst the global spread of the virus has been swift, the response of science has also been swift and importantly, concerted. Since the original case of 30th December 2019, scores of high-quality articles have been published enabling the medical community to understand an illness that months previously we didn’t even recognise.
The 4 individual modules are composed of 10 ‘best-of-five style’ questions and are designed to assess your current knowledge of the condition and management strategies. On successful completion of each module, you will be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate.
Whilst the questions are based on current published knowledge, we recognise that this is a swiftly developing picture, therefore, answers and current thinking might change. Similarly, ‘evidence’ is also emerging and many of the publications would, with application of levels of evidence, not be considered authoritative. With this in mind, we hope to continue to update these questions as knowledge progresses.

“I love StudyPRN! I have completed a few of the online courses, which are comprehensive, up-to-date and great value for money. Thanks.”
"StudyPRN is one of the best resources for healthcare. As a doctor, I haven't found many sites offering free courses, but you do. Also, your site was one of the first to publish a free course on Covid-19, which was very useful at a time when sources about the virus and pandemic were very limited."
“I recently did the COVID-19 course, which I found really interesting and informative. The CPD certificates at the end of the course were fab and it’s really good that the course was free.”
“I had gone through your COVID resource (with free CPD certification). I found it useful and helpful. I'm a Pakistan based GP and intend to start over my residency soon. This helped me improve my knowledge regarding COVID-19, complications and their management.”
“StudyPRN is a website full of very high class learning materials, especially for my field of study. I personally benefited a lot from the course. I’ve recommended this website to all my friends and colleagues to benefit in future from it.”
