Increasing number of healthcare workers
Providing a benefit or incentive that encourages individuals to pursue a healthcare profession - addresses a barrier going into a healthcare profession
The Fee Assistance Program, offered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), provides financial assistance to individuals so that they can afford to take the MCAT, apply to medical schools and fulfill other obligations that are needed to become a physician. Without the Program, these individuals would find it impossible or nearly impossible to apply to medical school. Some of the financial assistance provided includes: free MCAT preparation products, reduced MCAT exam costs, a free 2-year subscription to the Medical School Admission Requirements online database and waived fees for one application submission through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) which covers submissions to up to 20 medical schools.
