COMAT Clinical Subjects

The COMAT exams assess candidates in the setting of pre-doctoral medical education, covering foundational biomedical sciences and the osteopathic medical principles and practices of clinical knowledge.



Each of the COMAT exams consists of 125 items that must be completed within 2 hours and 30 minutes. A 5-minute tutorial is provided before each exam begins. Every examination in the COMAT series has multiple forms, and all are psychometrically equivalent in content covered, level of difficulty, and reliability, allowing COMs to administer a given COMAT subject exam up to 10 times per year.
