Medical aptitude tests are usually for screening students in the field of medical science by testing the capability and aptitude to study medicine. There are various medical aptitude tests with powerful predicting validity such as the Medical College Admission Test(MCAT) in the U.S., the Graduate Australia Medical School Admission Test(GAMSAT) in Australia, and the Eignungsprufung fur Medizin Studium(EMS) in Switzerland. However, in Korea, there have been no medical aptitude test developed yet. This study is primarily to develop a medical aptitude test relevant to Korean circumstances, and secondly to suggest devise specific direction in applying the test at individual medical schools. We reviewed the existing medical aptitude test of other countries through literature, and examined the feasibility of those tests by consulting experts opinion. The Medical Education Eligibility Test(MEET) developed in this study consists of four areas including biological and physical science, verbal reasoning, space perception, and writing. The advisory committee will update the contents of the MEET every year. Executing the test will be administered either by a newly established Institute for Evaluating Medical Education(IEME), or by existing institutes like Korean National health personnel licensing examination board Korea or Korean Institute of Curriculum & Evaluation(KICE). A preliminary test should be necessary to examine the validity and reliability of the MEET developed from this study later on.
