New Philanthropic Initiative Promotes Diversity in Measurement

Posted January 24, 2023

NBME recognizes the need to advance equity in the measurement profession and develop educational pathways for diverse learners to medical and assessment careers. That’s why we’re excited to partner with the Center for Measurement Justice (CMJ) to sponsor up to two measurement justice fellowships each year for the next two years.

The Center for Measurement Justice is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring equity in measurement and assessment. The CMJ-NBME Fellowship Program is a competitive dissertation fellowship for members of racial and ethnic groups historically underrepresented in measurement.

Fellows will receive a $30,000 stipend and will be expected to attend quarterly community of practice meetings offered by CMJ. They also have the opportunity to participate in optional NBME programming and research collaboration activities.

To learn more about the CMJ-NBME fellowship and complete the application, visit the CMJ website here: https://measurementjustice.org/cmj-nbme-dissertation-fellowship/. Applications are being accepted now through March 1, 2023. 

Sponsoring this fellowship continues NBME’s long-term commitment of giving to support medical education and assessment research. Review other NBME contributions and giving here: https://contributions.nbme.org/
