The meeting was held at the National Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) headquarters in Conshocken, PA on Nov 18-20, 2016.

The Clinical Standardized Patient Exam (CSPE) is given and taken by all third year students prior to graduation from podiatry school to qualify for licensure and moving onto residency. 

This exam was first given in a few years ago at he National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) testing center, but is now overseen and taken at the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) in Conshocken, PA. 

The Clinical Standardized Patient Examination (CSPE) taken by the third year students is podiatry oriented and specific. During the meeting, the practical exam needed the expertise of the attendees to help ensure qualification  and standardization of the CSPE by reviewing the communication and physical exam skills of the students who have already taken it.

Dr. Borreggine currently practices in Charleston, Illinois and is the current chair of the Podiatry Licensing Board through the Illinois Department of Finance and Professional Regulation. He has been in private practice for almost 30 years.
