Kilgore Recognized by NBOME for Exemplary Commitment in Producing Valid and High Quality Examination Content

The National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) named Teresa M. Kilgore, DO, FACOI the 2018 Clinical Decision-Making (CDM) Case Writer of the Year from its distinguished National Faculty. Kilgore is a member of SCOMS and is the discipline chair for internal medicine and associate professor for clinical medicine at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine – Carolinas Campus.

A member of the National Faculty since 2013, Kilgore is a significant contributor to CDM cases in COMLEX-USA Level 3. Selected among a large group of contributors.

“It’s been a pleasure to see the CDM concept come to fruition as part of the COMLEX 3 exam,” said Dr. Kilgore. “It takes months of hard work on the part of many people to refine the cases, key features and questions, but this group makes it worthwhile for me.”

Each year the NBOME Board selects the best-in-class item writers and case authors among a large group of contributors who graciously volunteered their time and expertise to contribute to the COMLEX-USA and COMAT examination programs.  In addition to their professional roles, these volunteers wear a variety of hats – writing and reviewing test items, serving as physician examiners for the COMLEX-USA Level 2-PE, and supporting the NBOME mission to protect the public through competency assessment.
