How to obtain a COMSAE Faculty Review Form
There is a faculty form available for use by COMs for COMSAE Phase 1 and Phase 2. The faculty form is identical to one of the existing COMSAE forms and is administered in the same fashion. The faculty form is not scored. Once the faculty member completes the exam, the last screen will show a sample of a score report only.
Steps for obtaining a COMSAE Faculty Form:
- Log into NBOME Portal
- Navigate to the Dean Portal
- Click into the Accounts page and then click Faculty Review
- From there, click the option on the right-hand side that says “Add Faculty Review Member.” This will take you to a page where you can input the faculty member’s information, and select which COMSAE Phase you want to review.
Once the information is saved, the faculty member will receive an email with instructions for setting up their account and accessing the examination.
