COMLEX-USA Faculty Review Program

The NBOME provides approved faculty members of colleges of osteopathic medicine the opportunity to conduct a COMLEX-USA review, which enables them to experience a computer-based examination similar to what candidates experience.

We currently offer two computer-based examinations for faculty to review: Faculty Review Form for COMLEX-USA Level 1 and Faculty Review Form for COMLEX-USA Level 2 Cognitive Evaluation (Level 2-CE).

Each examination has 200 items. To preserve the integrity of the examination, while offering the most realistic simulation of the COMLEX-USA possible, the examinations will consist of questions that have been recently retired. Please note, the content and format of items are identical to what is delivered to candidates.


COMLEX-USA Faculty Review examinations are available six days a week (every day except Sunday), year-round, at Prometric testing centers. Faculty members must register for and schedule the examinations online, and will be allowed up to two hours to complete the review. Although faculty reviewers can select answers for each item, their answers will not be scored and they will not receive score reports.

At the end of the review, the reviewers are provided with a survey. The NBOME will review the comments but cannot respond to individual reviewers. If you are a faculty member of an accredited college of osteopathic medicine and are interested in participating in a review examination, please contact the dean of your school.


To register faculty members for the COMLEX-USA Faculty Review examination, deans or their designees will need to log in to their school’s dean’s page and submit their information.
