Discover New Dimensions of AACOM Data

February 08, 2017

AACOM’s newly launched Research Dashboard provides an interactive environment for users to explore the distribution of AACOMAS applicants and matriculants by U.S. state/territory and college of osteopathic medicine (COM) for the 2016 entering class.

The new dashboard allows users to control how data are presented by adjusting built-in filters, in order to gain insight tailored to user needs and preferences. Highlights include:

  • Applicants and matriculants to the 2016 entering class designated up to 36 COMs as recipients of their osteopathic medical school applications
  • A total of 20,381 and 6,702 matriculants indicated a U.S. state/territory as their permanent residence
  • Almost one-third of all designations came from legal residents of California, Florida, and New York
  • Nearly 30 percent of all matriculants listed their legal residence to be California, Florida, and New York

Click the  button to enlarge the above dashboard window. Use the Dashboard Guide for more on how to navigate, expand, and share the charts and graphics.

See the latest AACOMAS Profile Report for additional information on applicants and matriculants. 

This dashboard is a test implementation of new approaches to presenting the various data that AACOM collects from the annual survey, special surveys, AACOMAS applications, and the entering and graduating student surveys, along with data from other sources.
