  • 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 of the medical school and areas that need improvement

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.
