The American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS®) is the AAMC's centralized medical school application processing service. Regardless of the number of medical schools to which you apply, you submit just one online application to AMCAS. Most U.S. medical schools use AMCAS as the primary application method for their entering classes.

AMCAS is only available to the first-year entering classes at participating U.S. medical schools. Advanced standing and transfer applicants should contact the medical schools directly for assistance. AMCAS does not render any admission decisions and does not advise applicants where to apply.

If you have an AAMC account and are unable to sign in to the AMCAS application, make sure your password contains only letters and numbers. To change your password to only include letters and numbers, sign in to your AAMC account, and click on Change Password.

Additional Services

AMCAS Letter Service
Most medical schools participate in AMCAS Letters. You can have just one set of letters of evaluation sent to AMCAS, which will then be distributed to the schools you selected in your application.

AAMC-facilitated Criminal Background Check Service
Most medical schools also participate in the Criminal Background Check Service. The Background Check Report is available to the conditionally accepted applicant for ten calendar days before it is released to the medical school.
