In Response to COVID-19
Prometric and the NBME program are working collaboratively to address the assessment needs of the medical licensure community during the tumultuous and evolving period of response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand the impact that these circumstances have on NBME test takers and constituents, and we are committed to enacting appropriate measures to preserve and maintain access to this testing program to the best of our abilities. We appreciate the need for timely and accurate information on the status of candidate appointments and test center availability. We are working together to address the identified needs of the NBME community.
The following information will provide you with an understanding of the actions and responses Prometric is taking in support of the NBME programs.
Important Information and Guidance for Exam Candidates
Prometric is hopeful that the COVID-19 situation in many markets continues to improve, providing more opportunities to support NBME test takers. We will continue to review local & state guidelines to ensure centers are open and operational where permitted to do so.
We will continue to review our social distancing requirements and make determinations on whether we can preserve future appointments or if they need to be cancelled due to our inability to test at specific locations, based on local and state guidelines.
When such a decision occurs in the future, Prometric will process the cancellation and send you a notification that your appointment has been cancelled, so you can schedule a new appointment. Please note that last minute cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances can occur, in which case you will receive a pre-communications letting you know your appointment has been cancelled, with a follow up email letting you know when it has been updated in the system so you can schedule via self-serve. Our goal is to ensure you have current, accurate information to support your assessment needs.
