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.
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.
Since 2001, JAMP has been helping Texas students achieve their dreams with financial and academic support to help them get to one of the participating thirteen medical schools.
