Dimension 1: Competency Domains

COMPETENCY DOMAINS are related sets of foundational abilities representing the required elements and outcomes that define knowledge, skills, experience, attitudes, values, behaviors, and established professional standards. They constitute a general descriptive framework for the practice of osteopathic medicine. Required elements articulate the essential foundational specifications, including specific, definable knowledge, skills, experiences, attitudes, values, and/or behaviors that make up the standards for the competency domain. Measured outcomes can be directly assessed in a reliable manner in the assessments that make up the COMLEX-USA examination program.
