In 2015, the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) will begin administering the new Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®), which is designed to help medical schools identify students who are not only academically prepared, but also have the potential to be well-rounded physicians able to provide the best patient care to an increasingly diverse patient population in a changing health care environment. With the administration of the new exam just one year away, the AAMC continues to develop exam preparation resources for aspiring medical students.
The following resources and study tools are available now to help students prepare for the MCAT2015 exam:
