NBME collaborates with a number of organizations to create assessments that range from licensing exams to in-training tests and certifications.


We work directly with the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) to create the USMLE®, the International Council for Veterinary Assessment (ICVA) to produce the NAVLE®, and the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) to implement the Health & Wellness Coach Certifying Examination. 

Global Collaborations

In addition to our domestic collaborators, NBME works with organizations around the world. Our staff has worked with international medical schools, governments, and professional associations to help improve global healthcare education through assessment.
