Based on the 12th annual AAMC Survey of Medical School Enrollment Plans, this report provides projections for first-year medical school enrollment through 2025. A decade ago, in response to concerns of a future physician shortage, the AAMC recommended a 30 percent increase in U.S. medical school enrollment by 2015, using first-year enrollment in 2002 as a baseline. Download the full report to see details about key findings, including:
  • First-year medical school enrollment has increased by 25 percent (from the 2002 baseline level) as of the 2015-2016 academic year, and 30 percent growth should be achieved by 2017–2018.
  • Medical schools are increasingly concerned about the availability of graduate medical education opportunities for their incoming students.
  • The number of schools reporting competition for clinical training sites from DO-granting schools and other health care professional programs has nearly doubled since 2009.
  • Most schools are dedicated to increasing diversity in their student body and increasing student interest in caring for underserved populations through targeted policies and programs.
  • Enrollment at DO-granting schools continues to accelerate.
