American Osteopathic Board of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (AOBNMM)

American Osteopathic Association

Operating under the authority of the American Osteopathic Association

The AOBNMM is one of 18 certifying Boards of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and is regulated by its Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists to administer examinations. These examinations are one part of the certification process for physicians seeking AOA certification and continuous certification in neuromusculoskeletal medicine. The function of the AOBNMM is to identify those practicing physicians who are eligible for examination to become certified by the AOA in neuromusculoskeletal medicine. The examination measures the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of a physician practicing neuromusculoskeletal medicine in order to make competent judgments in the care of patients.

Computer-Based Testing Tutorial and Practice Exam

Although this tutorial demonstrates many types of questions, the AOBNMM examinations use only one-best-answer, multiple-choice questions. These may be presented as single items, or as case scenarios. View tutorial.

Certification Application

Before scheduling an examination appointment, you must have already:
  1. submitted all application materials directly to the AOBNMM; and
  2. received written confirmation from the AOBNMM of exam eligibility and scheduling.

Selection of Regional Test Site

First-time test takers will receive, via email, a username and password from Pearson VUE. This email notification from Pearson VUE will be sent to the email address provided on your exam application. If the email address you originally provided to the AOBNMM is no longer accurate, you must resolve the discrepancies before you arrive at the test center. Appointments may be made up to one week prior to the exam date.

After you schedule your test, Pearson VUE will send a confirmation letter listing your test date, your testing time, the address and phone number of the test center, and directions to the test center.

Your examination results will NOT be available at the test center. Results will be provided to you by the AOBNMM.
