Joint Admissions Medical Program (JAMP)

Symposium Flyer

The Joint Admission Medical Program (JAMP) is a special program created by the Texas Legislature to support and encourage highly qualified, economically disadvantaged Texas residents pursuing a medical education. Funded through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, JAMP is a unique partnership between all nine Texas medical schools and sixty-five public and private four-year undergraduate institutions. JAMP provides support through undergraduate and graduate scholarships and summer stipends, mentoring and personal assistance to prepare for medical school, hands-on experience through summer internships, and guaranteed admission to a Texas medical school for those who meet certain requirements. Currently, this Medical School has 40 medical students enrolled through JAMP and has graduated 78 students. To learn more about JAMP, visit the JAMP website.
