The questionnaire was sent in February 2013 to the deans of the 136 LCME-accredited medical schools with enrolled students. There was a 100% response rate. Each questionnaire was reviewed and attempts were made to verify information and obtain missing data. Data for years other than 2012-2013 were obtained from previous LCME Annual Medical School Questionnaires.
