NBPME CANCELS PART II CSPE FOR CLASS OF 2021
At its February 9, 2021, the NBPME board decided that the many complications created by the global pandemic have made it impossible to continue the Clinical Skills Patient Encounter (CSPE) examination currently underway. Dr. Alyssa Stephenson, board president, stated that the NBPME intends to work with stakeholders including state licensing boards to determine the best path forward to continue to meet the goal of protecting the public health by examining all skills that are essential for safe independent practice.
