Coronavirus (COVID-19): Assessment Information and Updates

Across the globe, schools and workplaces have adopted social distancing policies and closed where necessary to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

They have also caused a temporary interruption for those scheduled to take an assessment administered through NBME.

NBME is fast-tracking investigations into alternative assessment delivery methods for physicians, medical school faculty, and students to enable the continuity of the medical education system during this unprecedented time in our history. To do this, staff is actively working by virtual means to follow guidance from health officials.
