AAMC PREview™ Exam

All applicants to the College of Human Medicine are required to complete either the CASPer Test or the AAMC PREview™ Professional Readiness Exam. The latter is a standardized test that presents a series of hypothetical scenarios students may encounter in medical school. Upon taking the exam, students will evaluate the effectiveness of a series of behavioral responses to the given scenarios.

AAMC_coreResponses provide insight into each examinee's knowledge of effective and ineffective behaviors across core competencies for entering medical students. These include service orientation, social skills, cultural competence, teamwork, ethical responsibility to self and others, resilience and adaptability, reliability and dependability, and capacity for improvement. 

The AAMC PREview™ exam is an opportunity to showcase your pre-professionalism knowledge and potential to develop into a well-rounded doctor. The AAMC is providing multiple free resources to help you prepare for the AAMC PREview exam. We recommend that you take advantage of the advice, strategies, and preparation resources as you prepare to complete the AAMC PREview exam.
