Final update: AAMC Graduation Questionnaire and Explore & Focus Phase Survey

From Sara Kim, Associate Dean for Educational Quality Improvement: It was such a privilege to celebrate you in person and via Zoom at the Physician Oath and Hooding Ceremony!

In past years, we have had a number of students continue to complete the surveys so I am counting on those of you who haven’t had a chance to get to the surveys to please help us out!!  We will do the incentive drawings as soon as the GQ survey closes on this Saturday, June 4. Please see the near final updates of where the response rates currently stand.

I thank each of you for your time and good luck with your career ahead!


We are at 62 percent, a slight increase over last week’s 61 percent. The national average remains at 72 percent. It looks like Montana will remain the cohort with the highest response rate of 74.1 percent (no change from last week), followed by Spokane (68.3 percent, up 1.6 percentage points), Wyoming (61.9 percent, no change), Seattle (59.4 percent, up 2.1 percentage points), Alaska (55.6 percent, no change), and Idaho (55 percent, no change)
