ASDA now offers the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Comprehensive Basic Science Examination (CBSE) for Dental Anesthesiology residency training program applicants.
The NBME CBSE will be required for application to a majority of Dental Anesthesiology residency programs. It also provides applicants with a method to assess their understanding of basic sciences through an enhanced testing mechanism. Please review the CBSE requirements for each training program prior to submitting your application.
ASDA will offer the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Comprehensive Basic Science Examination (CBSE) during 2 testing windows: Feb. 1 and July 1 at Prometric Testing Centers. All candidates must register at least 90 days prior to the last test date. You may not transfer your examination registration to another testing window after the registration deadline passes.
After completion of the examination, applicants will receive an electronic score report from NBME within 30 days of the close of the testing window. A copy of the score report will also be provided to the DA training program(s) indicated on the candidate’s examination registration.
The NBME CBSE is open to all dental students and dentists interested in applying to dental anesthesiology residency programs.
There is a $150 fee for cancelled examinations once the scheduling permit has been ordered. Cancellations and refunds will not be permitted after the registration deadline passes.
