Policies and Procedures for Investigating Reported Violations of Admission and Enrollment Standards

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has a responsibility to promote integrity in the processes associated with entry into medical school or a graduate medical education program, and therefore holds individuals using the AAMC’s services to the highest standards in the processes leading up to and including enrollment in medical education programs. These policies and procedures apply to violations occurring during the AMCAS application process, the Fee Assistance Program application process, and any violations in connection with MCAT registration or the MCAT exam. Please note that these policies do not apply to the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). These policies and procedures have been developed to advance this purpose by addressing cases which arise in the following areas while respecting the rights of all concerned parties.

Expand the subsections below for more details on the AAMC's policies and procedures for investigations.
