The Stemmler Fund provides support for research or development of innovative assessment approaches.
Delivering New and Innovative Assessment Methods
The Stemmler Fund was established in 1995 and subsequently named in honor of Dr. Edward J. Stemmler, who was largely responsible for its conception while serving as chair of NBME.
The goal of the program is to support the research or development of innovative assessment approaches that will enhance the evaluation of those preparing to, or continuing to, practice medicine. Expected outcomes include advances in the theory, knowledge, or practice of assessment at any point along the continuum of medical education, from undergraduate and graduate education and training, through practice.
