Contract Awarded to Meazure Learning

The NBPME recently awarded a multi-year contract for test development and administration to Meazure Learning. The decision follows a months-long process of inviting proposals from test vendors, evaluating three competing proposals and interviewing the prospective contractors. Meazure will be responsible for administering the Part III test in May 2024 and all subsequent exams, after a year of preparation and transition.


Dr. Roland Ramdass, board president, said the entire board has met with the key staff from Meazure and all are impressed with their professionalism and commitment to providing quality examinations in a manner that emphasizes excellent service to every candidate. He thanked the Examinations Committee and the entire board for their efforts and careful deliberation, noting that the three proposals were all impressive.

“We are thrilled to have been chosen by The National Board of Podiatric Medical Examiners (NBPME) to develop and administer the prestigious APMLE series,” said Tim McClinton, Meazure Learning CEO. “We look forward to providing an exceptional user experience to the NBPME and its stakeholders while maintaining the highest levels of quality and security through our market leading assessment development and exam delivery services.”

Clinical Skills Patient Encounter (CSPE) Task Force

NBPME has formed a Task Force comprised of a wide range of interested parties to consider how best to resume testing of the competencies of:

Physician-patient communication and interpersonal skills

Data-gathering and history-taking

Documentation of the patient encounter

Clinical problem-solving and decision-making.

These were all determined to be essential skills in the interest of public health and safety. The option of establishing testing in the schools is under consideration and discussions have begun with the AACPM. The task force chair, Dr. Vivian Rodes, said she is interested in having the group begin work on the many details that need to be resolved to continue progress on this very important initiative.
