What is JAMP?

JAMP, the Joint Admission Medical Program, is a Texas state-wide program that helps students coming from an underserved or low socio-economic background become physicians. If a student is selected to be a JAMPer and maintains all eligibility requirements, an interview will be extended to the student by each Texas medical school, with a direct entry into one of the medical schools.

For current students who would like to learn more about the process of applying to JAMP, please send an email to our JAMP Faculty Director, Dr. Debrah Beck.
