NBME Sponsors Centennial Prize Competition

The National Board of Medical Examiners® (NBME®) is sponsoring a Centennial Prize Competition: Innovation in Future Assessment of Health Professionals. This competition is among several events planned as NBME commemorates its first 100 years of service to the public and the health professions. NBME’s centennial celebration will culminate with its Centennial Invitational Conference in May 2015 in Philadelphia, which will feature presentations from the finalists selected from the competition.

The competition’s grand prize includes a cash award of $5,000 and an invitation to participate in developing the winning entry as NBME’s Centennial Fellow. The competition is open to individuals, teams of individuals, and to nonprofit organizations. Initial submissions are due by January 17, 2014.
