Each year the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) conducts a survey of graduating medical students. The questions posed by the GQ focus on critical issues for all medical students and educators. The information captured is used to help guide curricular reform, set priorities, and develop programs and policies that will improve the educational experiences of future medical students. At Penn, the information from the GQ is used to provide feedback to the course directors and administration about your overall experiences in medical school. It is the perfect opportunity to voice your opinions and know that they will be heard.

The survey asks questions on a number of topics ranging from your impressions on your medical school’s curriculum, to questions about diversity, indebtedness, and student mistreatment. 

All responses to this survey are linked to your AAMC ID and will be used for appropriate matching with other AAMC data sets for analytical purposes. This type of analysis allows AAMC to provide information that supports increased financial aid packages and graduate medical education stipends from the federal government. You will be given the option to release this identifiable information back to your school for further analyses at the end of the survey.  Your identified responses will never be released back to your school without your permission.

The website for the Graduation Questionnaire is Once there, click on “2012 Graduation Questionnaire.” You will need your AAMC ID number in order to log into the survey; if you do not have your AAMC ID number, a link will be provided on the first page of the survey.

The information you provide on this survey is critical and we strongly recommend that you complete it as part of your professional responsibility.

To give you some added incentive, once you have completed the questionnaire, complete the "survey completion" page and bring it to the Office of Student Affairs, and your name will be entered into a raffle for a free iPad to be presented to a lucky student prior to graduation.

You can't win if you don't complete the questionnaire, so please log on anytime after February 14th!
