Summer Enrichment Program
The Summer Enrichment for pre-med Students is a program in partnership between Paul L. Foster School of Medicine and UTEP held in late May or early June for four weeks. Students are provided academic enrichment preparation for their upper level coursework, an introduction to the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and critical thinking at UTEP. In addition, students spend mornings on the TTUHSC El Paso University Medical Center (UMC) campus shadowing PLFSOM faculty physicians in a variety of clinical experiences and attend a daily one hour lecture on topics related to applying to medical school, preparation for interview, library research and perspectives on clinical topics. Class size is 20 students. Students from regional universities are given priority; others may apply on a space-available basis.
