Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Performance Exam The Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Performance Exam (COMPE) serves as the OMS 3 summative evaluation for cumulative competency in the areas of communication; physical examination; osteopathic medicine; diagnosis; and treatment of patients in the ambulatory, hospital, or emergent care settings. The COMPE is designed to assess the performance expected of a student near completion of the third year of clinical education. The COMPE is taken at the end of the OMS 3 year. Students who are delayed and who are following an Altered Degree Plan of Study are required to meet with the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs and CIFSS to determine the appropriate date of their exam and be approved to take the exam. COMPE: First Attempt • Students who pass the COMPE on the first attempt will receive a “P” (Pass) grade for the COMPE. • Students who do not pass the COMPE on the first attempt will receive an “IP” (In Progress) grade for the COMPE. o To resolve the “IP” grade, students are required to complete a remediation plan as determined by the Associate Dean for Simulation and the Associate Dean for OMS 4 and GME. o Students must complete the remediation plan in order to resolve the “IP” grade to be eligible for graduation. COMPE: Second Attempt • Students who pass the COMPE on the second attempt will receive a “P” (Pass) grade for the COMPE. • Students who do not pass the COMPE on the second attempt will receive an “F” (Fail) grade for the course and will be brought before the Promotion Board.
