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. 


  • Students must meet financial aid requirements as outlined on the JAMP website.
  • In addition, upon entering UTSA after graduation from high school, students must complete 27 credit hours of 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. No dual credit coursework can be applied toward fulfillment of the 27 credit hours, they must be completed at UTSA. However, dual credit coursework is permissible for JAMP eligibility.
