The Medical School Graduation Questionnaire (GQ) is a national questionnaire administered by the AAMC.
The GQ was first administered in 1978 and is an important tool for medical schools to use in program evaluation and to improve the medical student experience. The GQ includes questions related to:
- Pre-clinical, clinical, and elective experiences
- General medical education and readiness for residency
- Student services
- Experiences of negative behaviors
- Financial aid and indebtedness
- Career intentions
- Strengths and weaknesses of the medical school
The GQ has been approved by the American Institutes for Research Institutional Review Board and endorsed by student leaders of the AAMC Organization of Student Representatives, the American Medical Association Medical Student Section, the American Medical Student Association, and the American College of Physicians, Council of Student Members.
