Preparing Residents for Board Certification

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery In-service Training Examination

The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery In-service Training Examination (OMSITE) is a 250-question computer-based examination designed to measure the knowledge base and competencies of residents in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. It is administered to residents in accredited oral and maxillofacial surgery training programs in the U.S. and Canada. The OMSITE covers 10 subject areas designed to reflect the knowledge and skills of participating residents, and assists Program Directors in effectively preparing residents in the specialty for the Board Certification process.

For more information, please download the OMSITE Handbook.

NEW! Examination Preparatory Portal (EPP) coming in October! Available to all current applicants or those with a Candidate status, this free online tool may help you prepare for your upcoming examination. An email with more information will be sent in October.
