The committee comprises representatives from 16 U.S. and two Canadian medical schools and two pre-health advisors serving in current or previous leadership roles with the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professsions. The UMMC School of Medicine is one of the 16 U.S. medical schools. Faculty participating in the study include Demondes Haynes and Loretta Jackson-Williams. The MVC is evaluating evidence about the fairness, impact, use, and predictive validity of scores from the new MCAT exam, which is called for by professional testing standards and will form the foundation for evaluating the soundness of interpretations of these scores for use in admissions.
