Office of Enrichment ProgramsWelcome!
Welcome to the Office of the Medical School Enrichment Program's web page. The mission of the Office of Medical School Enrichment Programs is the recruitment and the exposure of a diverse population of students to medical school. This includes economically, educationally disadvantaged, as well as underrepresented minority students.
The programs provide mentoring and academic enrichment opportunities for students. These opportunities assist students in their retention and graduation from undergraduate school and also assists in their matriculation into and preparation for medical school. High school, undergraduate, and pre-entry medical students are exposed to the medical school environment, receive mentoring from those involved with academic medicine, participate in academic enrichment activities and network with students with similar goals. These activities increases their academic success. This office has established partnerships with a number of Texas colleges and universities to assist with the recruitment of students with an interest in the medical field.
Through this website, students interested in medical school may obtain information and applications to the summer programs which are sponsored by this office. This office supports academic excellence, diversity in medical education and promotes the importance of service and leadership for mankind. The programs offered are supported by the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.
