MCAT® Fee Assistance Program for CanadiansThe Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) are offering a fee assistance program for Canadian examinees in financial need who register for the Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®) for the 2020 testing year. 

The AAMC is committed to providing support to Canadian students who would be unable to take the MCAT without financial assistance. This will support an increasingly diverse physician workforce.

The Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®), developed and administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), is a computer-based standardized examination for prospective medical students in the United States and Canada. It is designed to assess problem solving, critical thinking, and knowledge of natural, behavioural, and social science concepts and principles prerequisite to the study of medicine.

The application period for the 2020 testing year will open in September 2019.
