Item Writing Workshops

The NBME facilitates an item-writing workshop tailored to meet your organization’s needs. Workshops include training to recognize and address commonly occurring technical item flaws, and to prepare multiple-choice items that assess application of knowledge rather than recall of isolated facts.

A workshop lasts approximately 3½ hours and is available year-round at the NBME offices in Philadelphia or at another site of your choice.
