Statement Regarding COMLEX-USA Level 1 Score Report

March 3, 2023

Please see the statement below from NBOME President and CEO John R. Gimpel, DO, MEd, on the use of Performance Profile Pages that accompany COMLEX-USA Level 1 Pass/Fail Score Reports:

We have been made aware that staff at several clinical rotation sites have requested that osteopathic medical students share the formative performance profile pages that accompany the COMLEX-USA Level 1 Pass/Fail Score Reports. They reportedly were unaware that this information is only shared with the osteopathic medical student and their dean for continuous professional development proposes and to foster a growth mindset, and is not intended to be shared outside of that purpose/relationship. They were also unaware that this places the student in a difficult position in that students are discouraged from sharing this information for other purposes.

To that end, we have drafted a memo for any clinical rotation site staff or programs who request this formative information to clarify its purpose.
