I know, I actual am interested too, but they said they wouldn't implement anything until they allow time for all parties involved to be aware its coming, so if it does fo p/f I don't think it will go into effect for a few year at the soonest, but I could be totally wrong.Meh, I am interested. They said they were going to announce in December.
Thanks for the link. I found this snippet comical, "invitations extended to leaders and subject matter experts from major stakeholder groups. These include but are not limited to... medical students and residents, and the public."Winter 2019-20 per their website: United States Medical Licensing Examination | Invitational Conference on USMLE Scoring
Let's hope bureaucratic inefficiency wins out for once. At least until I've matched.I went to one of the NBME update sessions at the most recent AAMC and you hear the groans when they announced that there was nothing to report (yet). The unsubstantiated rumor floating around was that the amount of support for P/F obtained during the open comment period was larger than anticipated. If true (which is a big if), that may have sent them back to the drawing board, which would result in dragging this whole process out even further.
Great plan. I agree. I could see this making it harder to match derm and ortho, though. This is what progress looks like.
class grades = students knows random PhD content.This just means that class grades. shelf exams.. rotation evals have more of a say than just the one day board exams.
Just do what I do. Collect data between sets.I’m a first year medical student wanting to apply ortho, but I can only bench 115 lbs. Should I spend my free time doing research or weight lifting? Which would be the most high yield?
