Clinical Science Mastery Series
Self-Assessments for the Clinical Science Mastery Series are built to the same content specifications as the NBME clinical science subject examinations. This web-based series provides self-assessments for US and international medical students who want to assess their knowledge of the clinical sciences covered during a clerkship or medical education course. Self-assessments are available for each of the following:
- Clinical Neurology
- Emergency Medicine
- Family Medicine
- A score interpretation guide with a conversion table that translates an assessment score to an approximated total score of the Subject Examination score scale;
- The number of items answered incorrectly by content category; and,
- The ability to review the text of items answered incorrectly.
NOTE: The correct answer feature will be available for the Clinical Science Mastery Series self-assessments in 2018
Please see the table below for essential information about these self-assessments. Additional details are provided in the NBME Self-Assessment Services Information Guide.
