A USMLE test preparation company that operates under the name “Optima University” has been sued, along with its owner, Eihab Suliman, by the National Board of Medical Examiners and the Federation of State Medical Boards for using test preparation materials that were obtained illegally. An announcement about the lawsuit was posted previously.

Individuals who attended Optima's programs or are considering doing so risk having their USMLE scores delayed and/or classified as indeterminate. They may also be subject to other consequences, including charges of irregular behavior, as a result of their participation. The USMLE will post further updates concerning this matter.
