Credentialers take another step

The nonprofit group working on a credentialing program for people in CME has engaged a national test developer to pilot an exam by May.

The National Commission for Certification of CME Professionals (NC-CME) announced it will work with Schroeder Measurement Technologies (SMT) on the exam. After the pilot, organizers will determine a timeline for administering the test.

NC-CME has an existing partnership with the National Board of Medical Examiners to look at different strategies for developing and validating an exam, and the group had previously announced its intention to offer a beta test in 2008.
