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

The program is a joint effort between the medical schools and the public and private universities of Texas. JAMP assists students in acquiring the skills and knowledge to be successful by providing mentoring, summer enrichment programs including clinical preceptorships at one of the Texas medicals schools, scholarships, and ultimately, acceptance to one of the Texas medical schools.

The first group of undergraduate students joined JAMP in 2003 and entered medical school in 2006. They have now completed medical school and residency training and are now pursuing careers in medical practice.
