COMAT FBS Comprehensive | Administration

The COMAT FBS Comprehensive exam is administered through colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs) in an on-site proctored setting, through a remote proctor platform, or as a self-proctored test. It is delivered through a 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 off-campus administration easy, given minimum technology requirements are met.

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