COMAT FBS Targeted  |  Administration

COMAT FBS Targeted exams are administered through colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs) in a proctored setting. They are delivered through a 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 off-campus administration easy, given minimum technology requirements are met.

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