COMLEX Level 1 is typically taken by students who just finished their second year of osteopathic medical school. It is a problem- and symptom-based test focused on basic medical science material in the following subjects: anatomy, behavioral science, microbiology, biochemistry, osteopathic principles (OMM), physiology, pathology, and pharmacology. COMLEX Level 1 is a highly important factor in osteopathic residency admissions.
While the exam is similar to the USMLE, it has many differences. MedSchoolCoach tutors include COMLEX specific tutors who specialize in helping our students through this exam.
MedSchoolCoach tutors are hired only after a rigorous screening process that involves not just test scores, but teaching aptitude.

Your COMLEX score is extremely important for the residency application process. It allows program directors to sort through thousands of applicants in some cohesive way. While many other factors play into where, and what, residency you can get, COMLEX may be the most important.
Once! Unless you fail, in which case you can take it again.
Unlike the MCAT, which you can take over and over, your first COMLEX score is what you have to live with. Therefore, COMLEX tutoring is exceptionally important so you can maximize your score the first time.
The Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX) is the osteopathic equivalent to the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) which is used for allopathic students.
Osteopathic students are placed into a unique position when it comes time to take boards. All osteopathic students must complete the COMLEX levels 1, 2, and eventually 3 in order to receive licensure as a D.O. However, osteopathic students also have the opportunity to take the USMLE as well.
