Fee Assistance Program for Canadian Examinees
In our continuing efforts to support an increasingly diverse physician workforce, the AAMC is providing support to Canadian students who would be unable to take the Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®) without financial assistance.
To do this, the AAMC and the Association of Faculties of Medicine in Canada (AFMC) are piloting a fee assistance program for Canadian examinees who register for the MCAT exam during the 2018 testing year. Canadian examinees will be able to register for an MCAT exam date through this pilot fee assistance program beginning on February 1, 2018.
Canadian fee assistance applicants who qualify will receive reduced scheduling, rescheduling, and cancellation rates for the 2018 and 2019 testing years.
