The AAMC PREview® Professional Readiness Exam for Admissions Officers
The AAMC PREview® professional readiness exam assesses examinees’ understanding of effective and ineffective 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.
The PREview exam signals to applicants that professional competencies are integral to medical education. 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.
Volunteer as a Subject Matter Expert
The AAMC relies on medical school volunteers. Volunteering is flexible and engaging. Just a few hours of your time this year ensures the value of the PREview exam.
