Coronavirus Updates (COVID-19)

As we continue to observe this ever-evolving COVID-19 crisis, we want to make sure our candidates have access to a safe and secure environment to take the BCMTMS exam. As pharmacists, we are called to go above and beyond and do whatever it takes to fight this pandemic. We are aware that many pharmacists are busy working overtime or supporting staff shortages at this time. Therefore, the National Board of Medication Therapy Management has made two changes to support our candidates. First, all candidates will get an automatic 6 months extension. Also, all candidates will have the option use Mercer-Mettl’s remote proctoring which will allow them to take the exam in their own computer. Candidates that decide to be proctored online via MercerMettl must contact us directly at contact@nbmtm.org for the transition. NBMTM will waive any transition fee.
