Dimension 1: Competency Domains

COMPETENCY DOMAINS are related sets of foundational abilities representing the required elements and outcomes that define the 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.
