The National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME), founded in 1934, is an independent, nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to protect the public by providing the means to assess competencies for osteopathic medicine and related health care professions. Osteopathic medicine is a rapidly growing area in healthcare with a whole-person centered approach to medicine.... Doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) are one of the most rapidly growing fields in medicine today. The NBOME is recognized for excellence in the national and the international arena of osteopathic physician testing and evaluation. The NBOME's Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX-USA) is the examination series universally accepted for osteopathic physician licensure in the United States, as well as by physician licensing authorities in numerous other international jurisdictions. In addition, the NBOME produces a number of other osteopathically distinct assessments for other purposes and assessments for other professional clients.
The NBOME has two locations: the Chicago Corporate Offices (near O’Hare Airport) and the Philadelphia Executive Offices (outside of Philadelphia in Conshohocken). A National Center for Clinical Skills Testing is at each location.
