Health care is evolving and we at NBME are evolving with it. The input and collaboration of all those in the medical profession is essential to this evolution. Together we can explore innovative and inclusive assessment tools to help future generations of physicians develop not only the knowledge, but the skills and behaviors needed to treat patients.
More and more, medical education includes the advancement of skills and behaviors alongside knowledge, so students can develop as physicians who are fully prepared to provide effective patient care. We’re rethinking how innovative assessments can facilitate this evolution, but we can’t do it alone or without new perspectives and ideas.
