Pre-JAMP / Pre-Med Symposium

 

ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM

The Pre-JAMP/Pre-Medical Symposium is a half-day symposium intended for Texas residents who are high school sophomore, junior and, senior students who are interested in the field of medicine. We will provide informational workshops and optional activities for high school, students interested in applying to medical school.

One of our goals is also to introduce these students to a pre-medical program called the  Joint Admission Medical Program (JAMP). JAMP was created by the Texas Legislature to support and encourage highly qualified, economically disadvantaged Texas resident students pursuing a medical education.

The symposium features presentations by physicians, and medical school faculty and staff on such topics as:

  • The medical school admissions process
  • Overview of JAMP
  • Suturing and knot-tying workshop
  • College success workshops
  • Medical professionals and student panels
  • Motivational speakers
  • Clinical skills demonstration
  • Tour of the clinical learning resource center
  • Anatomy demonstration
  • Continental breakfast and box lunch provided

Faculty, admissions representatives and current JAMP medical students will be present and available to answer questions.

DATES AND DEADLINES

The next symposium will be held on Saturday, May 7th.
