2016 AACOMAS Application Follow-Up

Dear Advising Colleagues,

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and recent feedback on the HLTHPROF regarding the brand new 2016 AACOMAS application. Your feedback provided us with an opportunity to step back and review the issues internally, with NAAHP members, and Liaison International, our vendor. Our findings led us to implement a series of changes to our full application instructions, the on-screen application instructions, the electronic evaluation request sent to evaluators, and our 2016 CIB.

Your feedback helped us correct the errors in the instructions related to number of letters required for submission and letter grid (neither of which are required), and letter processing with VE and Interfolio. We immediately modified our application instructions to reflect the requirements of osteopathic medical colleges and would like to invite you to re-review the 2016 AACOMAS application instructions.

We also took immediate action to revise the instructions in the Evaluation Request section. We learned that Liaison International previously convened advisors whose input led to the implementation of the letter deadlines field. To clarify the purpose of this field, we modified the on-screen instructions for applicants and the electronic evaluation request for evaluators. The revised language to both are included below.

Impacts of Transitional MCAT Year on Medical School Admissions Processes

The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is one component in a portfolio of resources offered to assist admissions offices with admitting the most highly qualified and mission-compatible candidates into each medical school. As you are aware, the MCAT exam has changed this year, making the 2015-2016 application cycle the first cycle in which applicants with new MCAT scores will be reviewed. Because of this change, the Committee on Admissions wanted to emphasize several factors that may have an impact on application processing during the 2015-2016 application cycle.

AANP DC Federal Legislative Initiative (DC FLI)

On May 2nd the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) DC Federal Legislative Initiative (DC FLI) will take place on Capitol Hill. AANP will offer workshops to prepare participants to educate US elected officials on naturopathic legislative priorities. ND practitioners and students will meet with Senators’ and Representatives’ offices on the final day of the DC FLI. This is an important time for practitioners, students, and supporters of naturopathic medicine. It provides an opportunity to let their collective voices be heard, network and learn vital information about how NDs fit into health policy. This year AANP is requesting inclusion in Medicare. The AANMC will also be taking part in a meeting with the House Committee on Energy and Commerce to educate them on the role of NDs in the health care system and ask for inclusion in graduate medical education.

Future Physicians Take New Medical College Admission Test®

On April 17-18, more than 7,500 aspiring physicians worldwide were among the first examinees to take the new Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®). "It's a new day for the MCAT exam," said AAMC President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch, MD. "There has been a paradigm shift in medical education to acknowledge the competencies physicians need beyond medical knowledge—skills that will allow doctors to treat the whole patient—and the new exam reflects these changes." To help students prepare for the new test, the AAMC partnered with Khan Academy and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to create an online collection of free instructional video tutorials and practice questions. Teaching videos from the collection have been viewed 1.5 million times per month, and users answered 420,000 questions in March.
