First-year medical school enrollment has increased by 25% since 2002, according to a new report by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The increase represents more than 4,000 additional students. By 2017, enrollment is estimated to reach nearly 24,500, a 30% increase from 2002.

The report also found that medical schools are increasingly concerned about outpacing GME growth. One-half of the medical schools surveyed are worried about their students’ ability to find placement in a residency program of their choice after graduation. This is up from the 35% of medical schools that reported having this concern in a 2012 survey.
