Much information can be obtained about allopathic medicine, osteopathic medicine, dental medicine, podiatric medicine, optometry, and veterinary medicine from these Associations' websites.

Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)
An excellent source of information about application to allopathic (M.D.-granting) medical schools, obtaining application forms either paper or electronic, the MCAT and more.

Also, review the "Guidelines for Writing a Letter of Evaluation for a Medical School Applicant" if you are preparing to write a letter of evaluation or are a student requesting an evaluation for your medical school application.

Association of American Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM)
An excellent introduction to the nature of osteopathic medicine, plus an outstanding viewbook of osteopathic (D.O.-granting) medical schools; application is Web-based and can accessed from this site

American Dental Education Association (ADEA)
Information about careers in dentistry, the Dental Admission Test (DAT) and the application process, as well as links to dental schools

American Dental Association
Another excellent source of information concerning careers in dentistry

Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry (ASCO) 
Information concerning careers in optometry, plus a list of addresses and phone numbers of optometry schools. This comes in handy because there is no application service for schools of optometry, so you apply to optometry schools individually.

American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine Application Service (AACPM)
A good summary of podiatric medicine; 6 of the 7 schools of podiatric medicine use this application 

American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC)
Career information for veterinary medicine, plus a listing of all veterinary schools and the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS), a centralized application service now available for application to some veterinary schools. The VMCAS provides information concerning application to member schools. For other veterinary schools, application is done individually.

MD/PhD Programs
Association of American Medical College's site providing detailed information about MD/PhD Programs.
