SAEM Medical Student Online Testing Service


A Product of the Clerkship Directors in Emergency Medicine Academy (CDEM)

10/2/2016- The server has rejected a new email server connection requiring new programming. That will be worked on 10/3 and 10/4. My apologies.

A new student database for 2016-2017 is in in place, and only students put into this database will have access to the tests.  If you (student) or your students note that they no longer have access with their ID, please check your student list with your clerkship administrative ID and password.

To access this site your Clerkship Director must give you an ID and password.  If your clerkship director does not yet have an access ID and password, they can send an email requesting that this be set up- There are multiple tests that you can access as a medical student.  Your scores and tests will be sent to your clerkship director.  You can have immediate feedback on a specific question by clicking on "Grade" after you have made your answer response.

New for 2016-2017!  Two practice tests made up of brand new questions.  Feedback for both of these tests will be given to you.
