COMAT FBS Comprehensive | Administration

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