Medical School Liaison Program

Medical school faculty from academic and medical associations and representatives from major student organizations serve on the Advisory Committee for Medical School Programs, as shown below.

This advisory committee is charged to improve communication and to enhance relationships between the medical education community and the NBME in areas of mutual interest. The committee is structured to systematically obtain views from various segments of the medical education community.

The committee meets twice a year to discuss a variety of topics. Additionally, they provide advice and suggestions on how best to communicate important concerns to and from medical schools and students on an ongoing basis.
