Student Performance

COMLEX-USA. The National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) administers the Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX-USA) board examinations that consist of Levels 1, 2 CE, 2 PE, and 3. The purpose of the COMLEX-USA board examination series is to assess the osteopathic medical knowledge and clinical skills required for osteopathic generalist physicians to practice medicine without supervision. 

KYCOM requires that its medical students take and pass the COMLEX Levels 1, 2 CE and 2 PE board examinations as part of their graduation requirements. Following graduation and as part of residency training, KYCOM graduates also must pass the COMLEX-USA Level 3 examination.
