To the Editor: The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) administers its annual graduation questionnaire (GQ) to graduating medical students at all 125 accredited US medical schools. The GQ surveys students about a wide range of topics relating to their educational experience, and the resulting data are useful for tracking national trends, as well as for providing specific feedback to medical schools. This year, for the first time, the GQ was administered electronically rather than in the prior paper-and-pencil format. Because the results can be made available much sooner than in previous years, medical schools now have the opportunity to further query their graduating students before they leave to begin their residencies.
