The NBME either needs to be better at scamming us, or better at lying about it.

Yes, NBME – you created a uniformly hated test but kept it mandatory despite the fact that it has a 97% initial pass rate and – even worse – a retake pass rate of 94%  – and never made a cent.

dude.

That is some Grade A nonsense right there.

  1. Wow seriously? Us poor overworked underpaid bitchslapped-about-by-managers doctors across the poind are taking the USMLE and coming over to steal your jobs and women in droves, and they’re not making a profit off us?

    Yep, batshit insane.

    Also, I just read through your whole first page in one sitting. That’s some good stuff right there, especially the GIFs thing (and yes I share your concerns about What Should We Call Med School, no wonder I’m losing so many readers!)

    I’m adding you to blogroll, and will be back to stalk. Keep it up!

  2. LMCC (the Canadian equivalent) is just as bad – 900 for the part you write after medical school (with a 95% first pass rate) and 2000 for the second part (that you write during residency).
