The Joint Admission Medical Program (JAMP) is a special program created by the Texas Legislature to support and encourage highly qualified, economically disadvantaged Texas resident students pursuing a medical education.

Funded through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, JAMP is a unique partnership between all nine Texas medical schools and sixty-seven public and private four-year undergraduate institutions.

UTSA students interested in this unique opportunity to pursue medical school should consult the JAMP website for detailed information. Entering freshman interested in JAMP should contact the University Health Professions Office. The JAMP Faculty Director will work with each student to determine academic and financial eligibility for the program and guide students in course selection as well as the process and deadline for applying to JAMP. 

Target Population

Recent high school graduates attending UTSA beginning in the fall semester and who want to go to medical school to become a physician.

Program Eligibility

  • Students must meet financial aid requirements as outlined on the JAMP website.
  • Students must complete 27 credit hours of UTSA course work; this must include math and basic sciences, as well as the core curriculum. Three (3) credits of Advanced Placement coursework from high school can count toward completion of the 27 credits. Dual credit coursework cannot be applied toward fulfillment of the 27 credit hours. However, dual credit coursework is permissible for JAMP eligibility.
  • Students must complete both General Chemistry I and II with labs prior to application.
  • There is no required major for the JAMP Program.  Students are encouraged to pursue a major of their interests.

When to Apply

Applications for JAMP open after completion of their first-year at UTSA. Applicants must earn a minimum 27 semester credit hours.  

JAMP offers an Early Admission Track for high school seniors who will complete 30 dual credit hours in their senior year. If you are interested in the Early Admission Track, please contact the JAMP JFD - Tracy Walton.
