The AAMC developed the PREview exam, formerly the AAMC Situational Judgment Test (SJT), based on 10 years of research. The exam enhances the medical school admissions process by providing an assessment of pre-professional competencies that medical students need to demonstrate to be successful in medical school, in residency training, and as physicians. The PREview exam launched an operational pilot program with two medical schools in the 2021 admissions cycle and expanded to six medical schools in the 2022 admissions cycle.

In this webinar, the presenters discussed the need for an assessment that captures pre-professional competencies in the admissions process and provided a brief overview of the PREview exam. Then, admissions officers at three medical schools — Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine; the University of Alabama at Birmingham Marnix E. Heersink School of Medicine; and the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine — shared their experiences using the PREview exam for holistic review of applicants.

In 2022, the AAMC SJT was renamed the AAMC PREview professional readiness exam. The PREview program has grown to include more medical schools that will use the test in their admissions process for the 2022-2023 admissions cycle.

In this interactive webinar, AAMC leaders reviewed the research and evaluation results on this assessment and outlined the plans for the AAMC PREview program going forward.
