    When the GQ opens on February 14, a unique link to your GQ will be sent from GQ@aamc.org to your most recently updated e-mail address that the AAMC has on file. You will not need your AAMC ID, but you will need the e-mail from us containing your unique link. Each link is private and individualized, so do not ask another student for their link, and do not forward your link to anyone else.

    Also, ensure that your school has made you eligible to take the 2024 GQ. You are eligible if you are graduating in academic year 2023-2024, from July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024. If you believe you did not receive an e-mail from us, please check your e-mail's junk or spam filter. If you still cannot locate it, contact GQ@aamc.org and they will resend your link to you.
