The first in a collection of free educational tutorials to help students prepare for the revised Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®) that will be administered in 2015 are now available. The tutorials (including videos and questions) were developed by winners of a video competition sponsored by the AAMC, Khan Academy and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Lessons will be available through Khan’s online learning library, as well as the Pre-health Collection of the AAMC’s MedEdPORTAL® iCollaborative. Currently the growing collection has more than 24 tutorials (each tutorial includes 4-8 videos and questions) to help undergraduate and pre-med students prepare for health care professions. The content creators and reviewers will expand the collection throughout the year, which is expected to include approximately 500 videos and an estimated 1,000 questions by the summer of 2014.
