Preparing You For Medical School

This academy will: deliver programs and workshops that encourage East Texas high school students to study medicine; deliver special symposia for pre-med students, focused on developing the personal characteristics needed for medical school; facilitate for pre-med students job shadowing with medical professionals and research opportunities on campus; and provide UT Tyler pre-med students with dedicated advising and support from start to MCAT to medical school acceptance.

“I graduated well prepared for my future. My professors were awesome and fully invested in my success. My advisers were great, helping me choose the right prerequisites for medical school. I also benefited from career development workshops, including a mock interview that prepared me for my med school interview.”

  • Heys was accepted into podiatric medical school just weeks after graduating from UT Tyler.

Expert Advising for Medical School Admission

Pre-medical advising is provided through our College of Arts and Sciences, which holds membership in the Texas and National Associations of Advisors for the Health Professions. We will help you select curriculum and extracurricular activities to prepare for medical school acceptance. You also will be guided through the medical school application process.

Medical schools do not recommend any one undergraduate major for students planning a career in medicine. Instead, they prefer a rigorous arts and sciences education. In addition to required courses for medical school admission, we offer more than 40 majors to suit your interests and develop your skills for med school success.
