The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery In-service Training Examination (OMSITE) is a secure examination developed for OMS residents. It is an examination of knowledge and not a self-assessment or study tool.
The OMSITE is administered to all registered residents in accredited OMS training programs in the United States of America and Canada.
Data from the OMSITE can be used to document resident progress, remediate residents, identify areas of strengths and weaknesses, and assess program performance.
The content areas on the OMSITE cover the breadth of the specialty with basic science and clinical questions. The OMSITE examines foundational knowledge in the entire oral and maxillofacial surgery training curriculum. There are 250 questions on the examination.
All registrations and scheduling should be completed by the Program Director or Coordinator.
The OMSITE will be administered in Prometric testing centers. It is given annually in February/March. The OMSITE is 250 multiple-choice questions, with three hours provided to complete the examination.

Each program is responsible for disseminating the handbook to each resident, ensuring that their residents have registered, and submitting final payment to ABOMS.
The ABOMS is responsible for providing information about registering and scheduling residents, setting deadlines for participating in the examination and preparing data and materials for each program to disseminate to residents.
Residents will receive scores representing performance on the total test as well as specific content areas. Content area scores are calculated independently and cannot be averaged to construct a total score. Performance data will include the average score of all residents who participated and those with similar training.
Programs will receive performance data on each resident relative to all residents’ participation in the OMSITE, their year of training, others with equivalent OMS training, others with equivalent anesthesia training and others with equivalent medicine and surgery training.
Additionally, programs will receive performance of final year residents relative to the mean scores of all final year residents.
The OMSITE is designed to measure content related to the education and practice of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery representing the scope of the specialty. The data reported will accurately reflect the knowledge and skills of the participating residents at a given point in time. The data will undergo detailed psychometric analysis to ensure valid and reliable results.
The items will not be available for download on the ABOMSwebsite.
All information regarding your OMSITE results will be sent to your Program Director. ABOMS will not release information directly to residents.
If you require special accommodations, review the ABOMS policy.
