Applying to JAMP

The Joint Admission Medical Program (JAMP), established by the Texas Legislature in 2001, is a uniquely Texan workforce pipeline to medicine program. State leaders knew that many talented students that dreamed of serving others as physician came from a low socioeconomic status and thus faced significant challenges in achieving this goal. JAMP was established to minimize these challenges for highly qualified but economically disadvantaged Texas resident students by providing them the financial support and mentoring needed to be successful.
