The New York State Board of Medicine met on December 9 to update members on the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) activities and other policy issues. FSMB is the national organization representing individual state medical boards and the sponsor of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). FSMB representatives discussed the development of a clinical skills assessment in lieu of the USMLE Step 2 component that was cancelled in 2021 and had been used to measure a licensure candidate’s aptitude in this area. The Board also discussed new policies affecting medical school enrollment and accreditation in Israel and Canada. GNYHA will keep members informed as these issues evolve. The next Board of Medicine meeting is scheduled for March 2023.
