In addition to our work with health profession organizations, we collaborate with medical school educators and practicing physicians who comprise our test development committees—the core component in creating high-quality examinations.
We seek to make meaningful contributions to the medical school community by empowering educators through grants, awards, and professional development opportunities.
In addition to our assessment products, NBME offers a variety of services to medical schools and other organizations around the world.
In addition to contributions to medical education and research through various grants, funds, and awards, NBME offers internship opportunities for students interested in statistical analysis, psychometrics, and test development.
