School of Medicine Recruitment Initiatives

Spring Premedical Conference
UTMB annually hosts a Premedical Conference for junior and senior premedical students. Students visit our facility and meet with faculty and medical students. Several workshops are included that focus on the admissions process, preparation for medical school, the MCAT, selecting a medical school, selection process, and life as a medical student.

Night Before Social
Our current UTMB students host a reception for prospective students interviewing at UTMB the evening before the interviews to provide an informal environment to interact with current medical students, answer questions regarding the interview process and learn about life as a medical student.

Annual Phone-A-Thon
Annually, current medical students make phone calls to any of the applicants who have interviewed at UTMB in order to answer their questions about the campus, curriculum, or student life in general.

UTMB Tours and Presentations
UTMB provides tours for prospective students year-round by request. During the tour, students are able to visit our Gross Anatomy Lab, UTMB hospitals, and the Standardized Patient Center. In addition, students can request a presentation on Life at UTMB or a Career in Medicine. All requests must be submitted 30 days in advance.
