    Why us, why now?

    The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) introduced a new version of the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) in 2015. Like the previous version of the MCAT exam, the new exam tests concepts in biology, chemistry, and physics, along with verbal reasoning skills. The new exam adds testing in biochemistry, psychology and sociology, and tests scientific and verbal reasoning skills in more complex ways.

    The AAMC is looking for a Manager of MCAT Validation Research to work closely with medical schools in a research collaborative evaluating the predictive validity, use, fairness, and impact of the new MCAT exam in medical school admissions. Within the AAMC, the Manager is an integral member of the MCAT research team, leading research on the predictive validity of MCAT scores, and reports to the Director of MCAT research. The Manager will also lead validation research on the sound use of MCAT scores in student selection in the context of mission-based, holistic review, paying careful attention to the factors that contribute to achievement gaps and group differences in MCAT scores for students from different sociodemographic backgrounds. The Manager will use findings from this research to develop resources and tools that help medical schools identify students, including those from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds, who likely to succeed in medical school and help contribute to schools’ missions, goals, and diversity interests. The Manager will also manage vendors and AAMC colleagues in carrying out this research.

    How will you make an impact?

    • Work with other MCAT researchers, admission officers, and technical advisors to identify the most meaningful research questions and determine the research designs appropriate for various projects.
