remediation plan and readiness to sit for COMLEX Level 1, which may alter the tentative testing date established in the remediation plan. Students who fail to participate in the prescribed remediation plan (which includes providing CIFSS with updates regarding study plan progress and question bank performance) or who have not participated in the required support meeting, will receive an “F” (Fail) grade for the course and be brought before the Promotion Board. These students will not be released to sit for COMLEX Level 1 until the “F” grade is resolved, as they will not have successfully completed the OMS 2 year. o Students must complete the remediation plan and sit for COMLEX Level 1 prior to entering the OMS 3 year. Those students who complete the remediation plan and sit for COMLEX Level 1 by the first day of the regularly scheduled OMS 3 year will receive a “P” (Pass) grade for the Comprehensive Review Course (provided they have met all other course requirements) and will be promoted to the OMS 3 year. Those students who have not completed the plan and/or who have not sat for COMLEX year. These students will be temporarily withdrawn until they receive a passing COMLEX Level 1 score. Once the student is temporarily withdrawn, they must sit for COMLEX Level 1 within 60 days or be dismissed by the Campus Dean. These students will not be eligible for re-enrollment or further financial aid until they pass COMLEX Level 1. Level 1 by the first day of the regularly scheduled OMS 3 year will receive an “INC” (Incomplete) grade for the course and will be not be eligible for promotion to the OMS 3 Upon receiving a passing score on COMLEX Level 1, the student will receive a “P” (Pass) grade for the Comprehensive Review Course and will be promoted to the OMS 3 year. • Students who score less than 440 on COMSAE Phase 1 on the first attempt will receive an “IP” (In Progress) grade for the Comprehensive Review Course. To resolve the “IP” grade and be released to sit for COMLEX Level 1, the student is required to do the following: o Meet with CIFSS and the Associate Dean for Pre-Clinical Education to design a prescribed remediation plan. The plan includes the date the student is to sit for a second attempt of COMSAE Phase 1 and a tentative date the student is to sit for COMLEX Level 1. o Students who score less than 440 on the first attempt have two options for remediation: Option 1: Attend a VCOM approved external immersion program.
External immersion programs are generally held for a period of 4 – 6 weeks. Students typically need an additional 2 – 4 weeks of independent study following the immersion program before they feel ready to sit for the exam. Students who choose to attend a VCOM approved external immersion program are enrolled in VCOM’s National Board Preparation course. Students may not be enrolled in the course for longer than 60 days. Students must follow and complete the prescribed remediation plan as designed in order to be allowed to sit for a second attempt of COMSAE Phase 1. This includes requiring the student to submit to CIFSS updates regarding study plan progress and question bank performance as outlined in the course syllabus. VCOM will evaluate students’ completion of the prescribed remediation plan when evaluating students’ readiness to sit for a second attempt of COMSAE Phase 1 and COMLEX Level 1 and approving the students’ testing date.
