Our Point System

Throughout the year, you will have access to events that teach you practices that you can use as later on as a physician. We award points to help you keep track of the events you’ve attended. At the end of the year, the Top Point Earner will receive a free MCAT test prep course! The next nine highest point earners will be entered in a raffle for another free MCAT test prep course!

Please allow up to five business days for points to be updated for members. If you believe there is an issue with the points, please contact chiefofstaff@premedamsa.com.
