Entrepreneurs / 19th June 2017

HealthStartNJ, established by New Jersey Health Foundation (NJHF) to support student ventures at universities with which it has affiliations, made its first financial investment of $57,000 in DuelPrep, Inc., a startup company working to develop an interactive app to help medical students and physicians study for their medical board exams, announced James M. Golubieski, president of NJHF.

DuelPrep, Inc., was founded by Dan Nguyen and Gerard D’Onofrio, forth year Rutgers New Jersey Medical School students and recent Rutgers Business School MBA graduates.

“Studying for medical board exams is a very intense, time consuming experience for medical students and physicians,” explained George F. Heinrich, M.D., vice chair and CEO of HealthStartNJ.  “The DuelPrep mobile application offers a time efficient, affordable approach to studying using test questions representative of those on the actual exams.”

According to Mr. D’Onofrio and Mr. Nguyen, participants can engage in either single player practice modes or multiplayer games as they prepare for the standardized exam of their choice.

Medical students and physicians are required to pass these examinations before being permitted to practice medicine in the United States.

HealthStartNJ funds students involved in health-related research, projects or programs at Kessler Foundation, New Jersey Institute of TechnologyPrinceton UniversityRowan UniversityRutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology.
