It provides services to support and encourage academically highly qualified economically disadvantaged students pursuing a medical education. It provides admission of those students who satisfy both academic and non-academic requirements to at least one participating medical school. It is a unique partnership formed between Texas students, undergraduate institutions and medical schools in Texas.
