December 09, 1998
The Federation of State Medical Boards of the United States, and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) announced the appointment of Donald R. Bordley, M.D., of Pittsford, to the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 2 Test Material Development Committee for Medicine. Bordley is associate chair for Education, residency program director, and associate professor of Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
USMLE assesses doctors’ understanding of and ability to apply concepts and principles important in health and disease, which constitutes the basis of safe and effective patient care. USMLE reports their results to state medical licensing authorities to grant physicians their initial licenses to practice medicine.
The USMLE program examination committees, composed of medical representatives of the academic, practice, and licensing communities, assure the quality and integrity of the USMLE evaluation system.
Bordley will serve concurrently as a member of the NBME Medicine Test Committee that develops the Medicine Subject Tests. NBME creates subject tests in the basic and clinical medical sciences for schools and other institutions with an interest in assessing the educational achievements of physicians or other health professionals.
