How can we support the future of the medical community?

Beyond assessments of medical professionals, NBME is committed to supporting the future of the broader medical community through our philanthropic work.

As one of the beginning steps in this journey, we donated $10,000 to the Dr. Ala Stanford Center for Health Equity, which is run by the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium (BDCC). This donation helped BDCC serve 5,000 patients in our local community of Philadelphia. Another step NBME has taken is hiring our inaugural Philanthropy Director, Allison Anderson Acevedo.

“NBME will continue to support the medical community with impactful philanthropy that advances research in medical education and assessment science, provides resources to assist learners and invests in initiatives that improve diversity and inclusion in the medical and assessment professions.”

Medical education needs to support the advancement of skills and behaviors alongside knowledge, so students can develop as complete physicians, ready to take on patient care. We’re rethinking measurement to facilitate this evolution, but we can’t do it without new perspectives and ideas.
