Matriculating Student Questionnaire (MSQ)

info icon
Accessing MSQ: The MSQ is currently closed. The 2015 MSQ will open in June 2015.

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.


All Schools Summary Reports

All Schools Summary Reports present national data from the MSQ, combining student responses from all participating medical schools into a single report.

For Medical School Staff

MSQ Tools enables designated medical school staff to view their MSQ response rates and review their school-level MSQ reports.
