General

The AAMC developed the SJT exam with the support of medical schools to help the schools more easily identify the applicants who demonstrate the core pre-professional competencies for entering medical students: Service Orientation, Social Skills, Cultural Competence, Teamwork, Ethical Responsibility to Self and Others, Reliability and Dependability, Resilience and Adaptability, and Capacity for Improvement.

The AAMC SJT exam is delivered at no cost to examinees in 2022.

A proctor will log into the exam session with you and will communicate with you and monitor your exam through your computer’s video camera and microphone. The proctor will check you in and then will disappear from your view so as not to distract you while taking the exam. You will continue to be in the proctor’s view, and you will be able to contact the proctor at any time if you need assistance with the system. Additionally, if at any time during your exam the proctor has reason to believe you are using prohibited items or engaging in prohibited behaviors, your proctor may interrupt to request clarification of your activity, and if necessary, terminate your exam.
