The AAMC PREview™ Professional Readiness Exam for Admissions Officers
The AAMC PREview™ professional readiness exam assesses examinees’ understanding of effective and ineffective pre-professional behaviors across eight core competencies for entering medical students. This knowledge serves as a foundation for further learning and development in these competency areas during medical school and is a necessary precursor to engaging in effective behavior. When combined with other parts of the medical school application, PREview scores provide admissions officers with a more complete view of applicants and offer schools the opportunity to broaden the diversity of the applicant pool invited to interviews.
This resource hub provides admissions officers, medical school faculty members, and others who serve on admissions committees with information about the design, interpretation, and use of the PREview exam. It includes resources and tools for schools using the PREview exam, as well as findings from nearly a decade of research that support use of the PREview exam in medical school admissions.
Applicants intending to apply to a participating medical school should visit aamc.org/preview for more information about the administration of the PREview exam in 2022, including a list of participating schools, requirements for applicants, registration information, FAQs, and more.
