NBOME announces National Faculty Leadership Appointments
The NBOME has begun an exciting and transformational effort, aimed at broadening our National Faculty expertise and further enhancing the quality of examination content. We have reorganized and expanded our National Faculty, with new positions and changes in a number of existing positions. The restructuring, which includes establishment of clinical departments, will help ensure the NBOME is able to more effectively and efficiently address examination content needs as they arise.
At this time, we are pleased to announce the appointments listed in the table below. The NBOME National Faculty members announced here are leaders in their respective fields; virtually all have academic appointments at colleges of osteopathic medicine and/or teaching hospitals.
Our National Faculty has always included highly respected professionals who are dedicated to the NBOME's mission of protecting the public by ensuring our examinations appropriately assess the skills of those wishing to practice osteopathic medicine in the United States. In the new structure, our subject matter experts will be ready to deploy for any examination, whether an existing or new assessment tool.
Thank you to all who contributed to the process and for your continuing support of our mission to protect the public.
