The Joint Admission Medical Program (JAMP) was created by the Texas Legislature in 2001 to assist economically disadvantaged students in acquiring the knowledge and skills to be successful in their preparation for a career in medicine. JAMP encourages students aspiring to careers as physicians by offering mentoring, summer enrichment programs including clinical preceptorships at Texas medical schools, scholarships, and guaranteed acceptance to one of the participating Texas medical schools.
The first undergraduate students joined JAMP in 2003 and entered medical school in
2006. Funded through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, JAMP is a unique
partnership between thirteen Texas medical schools and sixty-eight public and private
four-year undergraduate institutions. As part of the Texas Health Education Service
(TXHES), JAMP provides regular updates to the pre-health community in Texas on advising
services and best practices to inform and enhance early intervention programming.
