Your chance to win prizes through the AAMC Year-2 Questionnaire (Y2Q)
Gabe Sarah, M.D, associate dean for Student Affairs and Sara Kim, Ph.D., associate dean for Educational Quality Improvement, want to thank the 29 students who completed the AAMC Y2Q survey this week. Here is a regional breakdown of the response rates with Montana students leading the way at 28 percent, followed by 25 percent of Wyoming, 21 percent of Alaska, 20 percent of Idaho, 17 percent of Spokane, and 12 percent of Seattle students.

- 3 wireless phone chargers ($20 worth)
