Pricing Changes Coming in June

To give training programs early notice, we have announced some upcoming changes to our subscription pricing. These changes will take effect as of June 21, 2017 (changed from June 25). You are free to renew your program's subscription until that date at our current pricing. As of that date, all programs will be charged a per-trainee fee of $165 per year. This applies to residents, fellows, medical students, and physician extenders in training.

The annual program license fee will remain $500, and can cover all training programs at a single institution if desired. The $500 fee includes one program director account, one program coordinator account, and five accounts for faculty or additional administrative personnel. The fee for additional faculty, recent graduates, and other personnel will change to $325 each per year.

We will send reminders in late May regarding subscription orders for 2017-2018. Orders will once again be placed through the SCORE Portal. Questions may be directed to
