MS4 Class Information – May 9, 2024

Update: The more responses to the AAMC Graduation Questionnaire, the more chances to win prizes

Here is a message from Sara Kim, Ph.D., research professor, surgery, associate dean for Educational Quality Improvement: Thank you to all of you who helped raise the school’s response rate by 2 percentage points to reach 58 percent. The national rate is 70 percent. The survey link was emailed to you by on May 1. We are 27 percentage points away from our goal of an 85 percent response rate!

Idaho (84 percent) and Wyoming (65 percent) boosted their response rates by 5 percentage points, with Idaho within 1 point of a second gift card drawing. Spokane (50 percent, up 3 percentage points) and Seattle (44 percent, up 2) also stepped up in the response rates with Montana (80 percent) and Alaska (64 percent) remaining the same as last week.


Please refer to the table below that specifies how $20 gift cards will be raffled based on the size of each campus-based cohort. We will draw names when the survey closes. It’s important that you keep the receipt issued by AAMC to receive the gift card (or you can forward it to if you would like us to keep it in case your name is drawn). 

Thank you so much for your time and input into the survey! 


Campus # of Gift Cards ($20) raffled if Campus Response Rates Reach 60% TOTAL # of $20 Gift Cards if Campus Response Rates Reach 85% If Campus Response Rates Reach 100%

*According to the UW policy, student employees (e.g., tutors, research assistants, hourly workers, etc.) cannot receive a gift card. If you win the raffle as a student employee, we will send alternative items of $20 value from Amazon.
