COMAT FBS Targeted

Intended for first and second year osteopathic medical students, COMAT FBS Targeted exams assess students’ knowledge, skills, and abilities related to a particular discipline or body system. Administered exclusively by colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs), this targeted approach enables schools to dynamically customize their portfolio of exams to best meet evolving formative assessment needs.

The COMAT FBS Targeted exams each have 62 items that must be completed within 1 hour and 30 minutes (examination time). A 5-minute tutorial is provided before each exam begins. Every examination in the COMAT FBS Targeted series has multiple forms, and all are psychometrically equivalent in content covered, level of difficulty, and reliability, allowing COMs to administer a given COMAT FBS Targeted exam multiple times per year.
