The NBOME Liaison Committee serves to interact with and better understand the needs and perceptions of the NBOME’s stakeholder groups for COMLEX-USA and related programs, including the following: the public and State Medical Boards (AAOE, FSMB), osteopathic medical students, residents, and physicians (COSGP, SOMA, AOA-BEL), the osteopathic medical schools (AACOM), Graduate Medical Education and Residency Program Directors (AODME, OPDA/CMSS), and the AOA.
STATE OSTEOPATHIC ASSOCIATIONS AND LICENSURE BOARDS
The NBOME collaborates with several state osteopathic associations and state licensure boards to increase awareness about osteopathic students and their qualifications, particularly among residency programs.
COALITION FOR PHYSICIAN ACCOUNTABILITY
In particular, Recommendation 18 calls for the equitable treatment of residency applicants regardless of licensure examination, by entering COMLEX-USA and USMLE scores within a single field in ERAS.
In June 2021, the NBOME formed the Student Experience Panel aimed at learning directly from learners about their experiences with and feedback on various NBOME initiatives as well as its products and services.
