The Comprehensive Review of USMLE (CRU)
The Composite Committee of the USMLE initiated a process to undertake a comprehensive review of the USMLE program in 2004. The Composite Committee establishes policy for the USMLE and is composed of representatives of the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), and the American public.
This multi-year project to review and revise the USMLE sequence is called the Comprehensive Review of USMLE (CRU). Additional information in the form of frequently asked questions (FAQs) concerning CRU is also available.
