NBME Exams

In 2006 the Medical University of Lodz – the Division of Studies in English obtained the accreditation of the National Board of Medical Examiners, a reputable American organization founded in 1915.  Such an accreditation, which results in a wide access to commonly recognized  NBME exams,  is a real asset for students and our University and a way to implement  objective assessment methods of medical students’ knowledge.

The NBME offers standardized, objective, discipline-based exams for use in assessment throughout the medical school curriculum. The exams are designed to provide institutions with effective evaluation tools and useful examinee performance data that can be compared with a large representative group of examinees at the same stage of training.

We use  the  NBME subject exams as the final method of  assessment which together with the  comprehensive  basic science (CBS) exams create a  consistent  and standardized examination policy.


The NBME exams implemented at MUL:

Behavioral Science  (MD Advanced program)
