Device Specifications

The UNMC campus does not specify the type of required device, but they do list supported operating systems:


The NBME shelf exams taken during Phase 2 clerkships are online exams and will require a lock-down browser application at the time of the exam. You will need to verify your device in advance of the exam, and the coordinators will provide you with information during your clerkship. Tablet devices are not currently permitted for use during these exams.

Examsoft is the software used for Phase 1 exams.  Meeting the requirements listed below ensures that your device is compatible with examination software. 

Examsoft/Examplify Mac devices

Examsoft/Examplify Windows devices

While it is likely you already own a mobile phone, and it will prove useful during your time at UNMC, a mobile/cellular telephone is not an acceptable device for exams because of the stringent requirements for participating in computer-based examinations.
