National Board Examinations
All students are required to take and pass COMLEX I, COMLEX II-CE and COMLEX II-PE in order to graduate. Students who do not pass COMLEX I, COMLEX II-CE or COMLEX II-PE must appear before the SPC. The SPC may recommend academic leave to enable preparation for re-examination. Otherwise, students will continue in the degree program on a provisional basis pending results of the re-examination. A student who does not achieve a passing score as determined by the NBOME on any part within three attempts may be dismissed from the DO degree program.
