HMS Comprehensive Examination assesses the ability of final year students to integrate and apply their knowledge, clinical skills, and professional attitudes in a standardized format.  As a summative evaluation, successful completion of the examination is a prerequisite for graduation from HMS.  As a formative experience, the examination provides objective data on which students can reflect and improve their abilities in a mentored fashion, as well as data on which the HMS curriculum and its processes can be continually evaluated and improved.

Comprehensive Exam Steering Committee serves as an indispensable advisory group to the HMS Comprehensive Exam OSCE for 4th year students.
