Individuals seeking data about medical schools, teaching hospitals, and medical students can request custom projects from the AAMC.

Matriculating Student Questionnaire (MSQ)

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

The 2014 MSQ Reports for each medical school are available to designated medical school staff at MSQ Tools (AAMC Sign in required). MSQ Tools enables designated medical school staff to make personal profile updates, view their MSQ response rates, and review their individual school reports.

Accessing the MSQ

The MSQ is currently closed. The 2015 MSQ will open in June 2015.
