by hugepuppy 04-29-2011, 07:07 PM
Hello everyone... I got this thread from another forum and I thought that I should share it with all you wonderful members here..
I just got this through the AMA-MSS list and I'm passing it along.
****Please Forward Widely****
Dear students, residents and fellows:
We have opened a discussion forum dedicated to the Comprehensive Review of USMLE. The forum was announced at a large, well-attended focus session at this year’s AAMC meeting. We have asked interested parties to share with us their questions and concerns about possible changes to the USMLE Program based on the themes and principles we have identified during our deliberations.
We hope that USMLE stakeholders will use this forum to begin a rich dialogue about the Comprehensive Review, from which we can create FAQs and address any areas we have not addressed thus far. We do not plan to respond to every individual post but will look for prominent themes and recurring inquiries.
Please ask the tough questions, and we welcome you to fully engage in the online discussion. As CRU/CEUP members, we will be monitoring the discussions closely, along with NBME and FSMB staff, and we very much look forward to your questions, opinions and suggestions.
You will need to register in order to login. The forum is here:
As always, please contact me at anytime if I may be of further assistance…
All the best,

Several changes to the current structure of the USMLE exams have been tentatively proposed. The goal of these changes is to improve medical education, increasing the integration of basic and clinical science education, by combining USMLE Step 1 and USMLE Step 2 into a single exam. The application and use of exam scores versus the use of a
pass/fail scoring system in assessing student performance is also being studied. These proposed changes are a result of a periodic review of the examinations and NOT due to any specific concerns. Please see summary at http://survey.physicianscientists.org/ for further information.
An 18 question multiple-choice survey
The survey should take you approximately 5 minutes to complete. Please proceed to http://survey.physicianscientists.org for a more complete explanation and a link to the survey.
Please forward this email to medical student and resident colleagues to maximize the accuracy of our results.
NOTE: This survey was not developed nor specifically endorsed by the USMLE, NBME, or any other affiliates of the USMLE. It is a student designed survey.
Chair, APSA Policy Committee
