Top 3 Reasons to Keep Up With Your JAMP Faculty Director

Staying in contact with your JAMP Faculty Director (JFD) can be an action of great benefit to you as you move forward in the program. Here are the three most important reasons why:

  1. Keeping Your Relationship With Your JFD
    • If you are admitted to the JAMP program, you will continue to work very closely with your JFD during your time with JAMP. Therefore, it makes sense that you will need to continue your relationship with your JFD. A friendly message to check-in and say, "Hi! How are you?" can go a long way.

  2. Getting Ready for JAMP Interviews With Support From Your JFD
    • Some JFDs can offer support and guidance on the JAMP interviews. As you move forward, remember that these individuals can become a valuable resource for you to turn to as you prepare for your interviews. It never hurts to ask! 

  3. Staying Up-To-Date on Your JAMP Application With News From Your JFD
    • During this current portion of the JAMP application process, the JAMP office regularly communicates updates to your JFD. They can answer your questions about what happens next.
There you have it; a quick and simple list to keep you on track during this step of your medical journey.
