COMAT FBS Targeted  |  Administration

COMAT FBS Targeted exams are administered through colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs) in a proctored setting. They are delivered through secure PC and MAC compatible browser or via iPad using the eCOMAT app developed by ITS. This functionality provides greater adaptability and flexibility for multiple-site delivery, making it easy for off-campus administration, given minimum technology requirements are met.

For in-depth information, please review the COMAT Test Administration Guide.
