Dear 3rd-year students,
I hope all of you and your families are well. Thank you for your patience during this time. I wanted to let you know that we will be delaying the shelf exam and it will not be given as scheduled for the 6 week clerkships. The shelf will not take place this Friday. This is largely due to the fact that the NBME has developed a remote-proctored format for the shelf exam, but it will not be available until April 7. We hope to administer the shelf in as close proximity to that date as possible, but we are planning the details and date as we have not heard more information from the NBME. I hope this answers questions and gives you your weekend back. Stay well.
