JAMP at Texas A&M University-Texarkana

Joint Admission Medical Program at A&M-Texarkana Creates Path to Medical School

The Joint Admission Medical Program (JAMP) is a special program created in 2003 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 9 Texas medical schools and 67 public and private four-year undergraduate institutions in Texas. The current Legislature set aside 10% of the medical schools’ entering class for the JAMP students.  In 2013, A&M-Texarkana signed an agreement with the JAMP council and began accepting students for the program.
