Recommendations for Medical School Admission Officers and Applicants

Applicants and medical schools have complementary responsibilities in the annual medical school application and admission processes.

The AAMC offers the following protocol recommendations to ensure that applicants are notified of the outcome of their medical school applications in a timely manner and that schools have no unfilled positions in their entering classes. These protocols are often referred to as “Traffic Rules” by admissions officers and pre-health advisors. Prospective applicants, their advisors, and admission staff at medical schools and programs should all be aware of these Application and Acceptance Protocols.

Policies and Procedures for Investigations

These policies and procedures are designed to promote integrity and high standards while ensuring the rights of all concerned parties.
