Summer Enrichment Program
Sponsored by the Foster School of Medicine, the Summer Enrichment Program for pre-med students is held in June for three to four weeks.
Students are provided academic enrichment preparation for their upper-level coursework, and an introduction to the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and critical thinking. In addition, students spend mornings at University Medical Center of El Paso or other facilities shadowing faculty physicians in a variety of clinical experiences, and attend a daily one-hour lecture on topics related to applying to medical school, preparing for interviews, library research and perspectives on clinical topics.
Class size is typically 10 students. Students from regional universities are given priority; others may apply on a space-available basis.
