Demonstrating Competence in an Unconventional Application Year - May 22

  • Registration Closed. Maximum Number of Registrants reached.

Due to high demand for this presentation, registration is now closed. The recording will be available here within 5 business days.

In 2013, in consultation with U.S. medical schools, the AAMC identified 15 core competencies for entering medical students that represent the knowledge, skills, and abilities successful applicants should be able to demonstrate. They represent three main areas: pre-professional skills, thinking and reasoning abilities, and knowledge of science. During this webinar you’ll learn more about the core competencies, understand how medical schools assess applicant competencies, and see how one experience can illustrate proficiency across multiple competencies.   

Admissions officers are aware of the disruption many of you have faced while preparing to apply to medical school and are planning how to carefully assess applicant competency during this unconventional application cycle. The webinar speakers will share some approaches you might be able to use to demonstrate your competencies in your applications.

After participating in this webinar, participants will: 

  • Understand the 15 core competencies for entering medical students 
  • Learn about creative ways to articulate competence using your current courses and experiences 
  • Consider how to use the AAMC Anatomy of an Applicant Self-Assessment Guide to support your medical school application
