Longtime EMS customer NBOME will celebrate the opening of its new National Center for Clinical Skills Testing (NCCST) location in Chicago, IL this Friday. NCCST-Chicago joins NCCST-Philadelphia as the nation’s premiere venue for the assessment of osteopathic medical professionals.
Excerpted from the press release:
With the opening of the new state-of-the-art center in Chicago, the NBOME now provides osteopathic medical students nationwide with a second location where they can take the NBOME's COMLEX-USA Level 2-Performance Evaluation (PE) examination. The COMLEX-USA Level 2-PE is a one-day, seven-hour standardized assessment of fundamental clinical skills, including patient-physician communication and osteopathic manipulative treatment skills, in which each candidate encounters 12 standardized patients (SPs) in simulated ambulatory clinical settings.
"We chose Chicago for our second clinical skills testing location because of its great access to and from O'Hare International Airport," said NBOME President and CEO John R. Gimpel, DO, MEd. "This provides a very convenient option for students who travel from across the entire country to take our examination."
