We're passionate about supporting the development of future medical education and measurement leaders. 

To advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the medical and measurement professions, NBME is investing in pathway programs and scholarships for underrepresented and underserved learners in these fields. Supporting the cultivation of a diverse and culturally competent workforce can improve health outcomes and reduce care disparities for marginalized communities.

This grant program investigates the effectiveness of strategies that increase the number of underrepresented and traditionally underserved individuals in the medical profession.
