The 2024 MSQ is open! If you were accepted to an MD program in the U.S. in 2024 and have not yet received your MSQ link, email msq@aamc.org.

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, Transforming Health Care Workforce.
