Joint Admission Medical Program [JAMP] (Medical School)
In 2001, the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 4075 (HB 4075), which provided the funding for JAMP throughout the state of Texas. The JAMP program is designed to encourage and support highly qualified but economically disadvantaged Texas students as they pursue a career in medicine. Students who are admitted into the JAMP program and successfully complete all of the requirements of the program are guaranteed admission into one of the nine participating medical schools in Texas. In addition, JAMP students receive undergraduate and medical school scholarships to help pay for the cost of preparing for and attending medical school. JAMP students receive substantial mentoring throughout the program, assistance preparing for the MCAT, and they participate in summer internships at medical schools in Texas.
