The AAMC's Student Records System (SRS) houses secure, centralized enrollment information on the national medical student population and tracks student progress from matriculation through graduation. The collection of these data assists medical schools with meeting the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) requirements of reporting enrollment data and provides medical schools with benchmark enrollment, retention and graduation data.
Run by the AAMC's division of Enrollment Services, the SRS is a secure, Internet-based application that contains a record for every student currently enrolled in an LCME-accredited U.S. medical school. The source for each record in the database is national data collected by the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). AMCAS provides SRS matriculant data for the entire national applicant pool, including non-AMCAS schools.
Students' biographic and enrollment status data make up the SRS Class Rosters. These online class rosters enable all medical school registrars and student records representatives to make regular updates and verify the accuracy of the information contained in SRS. Registrars compare their student records with the class rosters and make any corrections or updates using the SRS. Class rosters M1-M4 list all actively enrolled medical students by class level. The Inactive roster lists all students who are currently on a leave of absence or participating in a combined degree program, research, or special studies.
The SRS also has reports that provide the AAMC, constituents and other researchers with statistical information on such things as enrollment profiles, student retention patterns, and graduation rates. Custom reports are available on request.
