Dear MS1 students,
I’ve gotten some inquiries about the NBME Customized Assessment Service (CAS) exam that was planned for May/June, so I wanted to update you on where things stand. The NBME is currently not allowing remote administration of customized exams, so this exam will not be administered during Blood & Cancer.
We understand that many of you would still like to take an NBME exam of some type in order to become acclimated to the questions and to help guide review over the summer. Our plan so far is that there will be some optional NBME exam administrations during the summer with exams that we are allowed to administer remotely. We in the administration are currently in discussions with various groups about exactly what this will look like and hope to have more information to you in the next few weeks.
Let me know if you have any questions.
