While the COMLEX-USA examination series is intended for licensure of osteopathic physicians, the NBOME recognizes there are a number of secondary uses, including use by Residency Program Directors to help in assessing applicants. The NBOME is therefore committed to fostering greater understanding of COMLEX-USA scores among all Residency Program Directors.

We encourage program heads and others who may be called upon to make judgments about osteopathic medical students, to take the time to understand COMLEX-USA, what it measures, how its standards are set and what COMLEX-USA scores mean. The information below should be helpful in that regard.

If you need information that is not contained here, please contact us through our Client Services Department by calling (866) 479-6828 or via email. Client Services Representatives are available 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (Eastern Time), Monday through Friday, except NBOME holidays. Voicemail is available at all other times.
