MU-COM Outcomes

COMLEX-USA

The National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME: www.nbome.org) administers the Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination of the United States (COMLEX-USA). The examinations consist of three levels (Levels 1, 2CE and PE, and 3) and are designed to assess osteopathic medical knowledge, clinical skills, and other competencies required to practice as an osteopathic generalist physician.

The Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA: www.osteopathic.org) requires that all osteopathic students pass COMLEX-USA Levels 1, 2CE, and 2PE prior to graduation. Graduates of COMs must also pass COMLEX-USA Level 3 during postgraduate (residency) training in order to obtain a license to practice medicine. COCA requires that all COMs publish first-time pass rates for students and graduates. MU-COM’s pass rates are listed below.
