An Associate Professor of Family Medicine at UNT Health Science Center recently won election to the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME). 

Sajid A. Surve, DO, Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, began his term Dec. 8. In addition to his role an UNTHSC, Dr. Surve is Co-Director of the Texas Center for Performing Arts Health, where he plays a key role in improving health care for performance artists. 

“I’m very excited to be able to represent the values of UNTHSC at the NBOME during such an important time for the osteopathic profession,” Dr. Surve said. “These next few years will bring about great changes and uncertainty, so having strong leadership from our national organizations will be critical. I’m honored to serve the osteopathic community.” 

Dr. Surve, a distinguished fellow of the American Osteopathic College of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, earned his DO degree from the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine and completed residency training in physician medicine and rehabilitation, osteopathic neuromusculoskeletal medicine.  

He also holds certification in medical acupuncture from the David Geffen School of Medicine-University of California at Los Angeles.  He has been involved with NBOME committees since 2016. 

The board is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit assessment organization committed to protecting the public by providing the means to assess competencies for osteopathic medicine and related health care professions. NBOME’s COMLEX-USA  examination series is a graduation requirement for all colleges of osteopathic medicine.
