Accessing the MSQ: The 2019 MSQ is now closed. The 2020 MSQ will open in June 2020.
The AAMC administers the Matriculating Student Questionnaire (MSQ) annually to all first-year medical students. The Web-based questionnaire asks first-year medical students to share their thoughts on a variety of topics, such as:
- Pre-medical experiences
- Medical school selection processes
- Future career interests
- Educational debts and financing
Student responses to the MSQ are analyzed and then reported, in aggregate, to each participating medical school. This feedback helps medical schools fine-tune their educational programs to fit the needs of their students.
AAMC Student Surveys Advisory Committee
The AAMC Student Surveys Advisory Committee (SSAC) works with stakeholders to provide effective and timely program evaluation tools for the improvement of medical education. The SSAC is led by Geoffrey H. Young, PhD, Senior Director, Student Affairs and Programs.
