GME Admissions Reporting Standards

The purpose of the GME Admissions Reporting Standards is to aid in creating trust, educating junior colleagues or those new to GME admissions, and standardizing reporting, so candidates can accurately compare across programs. In response to requests from the membership, GMAC formed a task force at the beginning of 2019 to revise the MBA Reporting Criteria (in effect 2000 to 2013) into new GME Admissions Reporting Standards ("Standards"). These new standards are intended to align with the transformation of our industry and today’s best practices.

You can download a copy of the Standards below (under Related Resources) to serve as a reference as you update your marketing collateral/properties and prepare submissions to ranking publications. We have also extracted the tables and made them available for you to conveniently capture and save your data.

Per the recommendation of the task force, GMAC will review (and revise as needed) the Standards on a two-year cycle. GMAC will convene a new task force in the first half of 2022 to begin the revision process. If you are interested in serving on that task force or if you have any questions, comments or feedback, please email

Task Force

GMAC extends our sincerest gratitude to the 2019/2020 task force for the many hours of work in not only revising the Standards, but also making themselves available for conferences, webinars, and Zoom calls to address the questions of the membership.
