NBOME Assessment Education Series

The NBOME Learning Center hosts a number of NBOME-developed modules to help medical educators, including NBOME National Faculty, learn more about assessment development, scoring, and related topics. These modules are designed to support education in the development of osteopathically distinct assessments. Modules in the Assessment Education Series include:

  • Item Writing 101: Multiple-Choice Items with Realistic Clinical Scenarios provides an introductory-level, self-guided, interactive course designed to facilitate writing multiple choice items that assess competencies in osteopathic medicine and related health care professions, using realistic clinical scenarios.
  • Rationale Writing 101: This course provides information on why rationales are valuable and how they can be used for multiple purposes and audiences.

Self-paced CME activities, approved for AOA CME credit, have been developed in partnership with colleges of osteopathic medicine and osteopathic specialty boards.

The NBOME developed three courses with the American Osteopathic Board of Family Practitioners (AOBFP):

  • The AOBFP Professionalism: Medication Safety and Communication OPAIM
