** Only COMLEX Level 3 scores must be posted on AACOM accredited schools' websites. Those that post COMLEX level 1 and/or 2 scores are voluntarily posting their scores. The Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) requires all osteopathic medical schools to annually publish a report on its website, in its academic catalog, and in all promotional publications that provide information about their education for prospective students. They require the following appear in the report:

  1. The number of students from each graduating class who applied to and obtain or were offered placement in a Graduate Medical Education (GME; residency or internship) program accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) or the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or the military, and the number of students from each graduating class who applied to and were unable to obtain placement in an accredited GME.
  2. The number of students who sought placement in GME and were successful. This information must be made available to the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) to be published in AACOM's Annual Report to prepare the “GME Accountability Report” (COCA Standard 8.3).
  3. The first time pass rate of graduates on the COMLEX-USA Level 3 exam.
