New COMAT Self Evaluation Available
November 2, 2023
The NBOME is pleased to announce the launch of COMAT-SE (Self Evaluation). As a new learning tool on the CATALYST platform, COMAT-SE is designed to assist osteopathic medical students in preparing for COMAT clinical exams.
COMAT-SE provides 60 questions that follow the same blueprints as COMAT Clinical exams. Candidates will be able to answer the questions within 90 days from the day they attempt to answer the first question. These self-paced evaluations can be accessed via a desktop, smartphone, or tablet.
After responding to a COMAT-SE question, candidates are shown the correct answer in real-time, the rationale for why that answer is correct, and are provided additional references for further study to help reduce any knowledge gaps. COMAT-SE uses a dashboard that shows real-time progress.
Currently, COMAT-SE is only available as a tool to prepare for the Osteopathic Principles & Practice (OP) Clinical exam but is expected to expand to all COMAT exams in the future. COMAT Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics exams are currently under development.
COMAT-SE can be purchased by colleges of osteopathic medicine or by students directly from their NBOME portal account. If you have any questions on how to purchase, please contact NBOME Client Services Monday-Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm CT by email or phone: 866-479-6828.
