NBME Lawyer

Thousands of medical students take the three-step exam required by the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE) and administered by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and its partner organizations. Even more medical students take the NBME comprehensive shelf and self-assessment examination. All too often, applicants and examinees find themselves accused of irregular behavior, fail to take the proper steps to defend themselves, and ultimately experience invalidated test scores, dismissal from medical school, reports made to the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), a bar from sitting for future examinations for period of time, or, in extreme cases, being prohibited from taking future exams.

Our firm is one of the few in the country with substantial experience representing medical students, medical school graduates (including IMGs) and physicians in disputes with the USMLE Program and NBME in connection with allegations of irregular behavior. We represent medical students, residents, interns, fellows and other practitioners facing administrative actions and allegations of irregular behavior, assisting those clients in responding to the allegations and appearing with our clients before the Committee on Individualized Review (CIR). We advocate that no finding of irregular behavior be made, or, where appropriate, that the punishment accompanying such a finding be proportionate and fair, always mindful to preserve the record for potential subsequent judicial review.

If you have a matter that concerns the NBME, our attorneys stand ready to assist.
