Additional Resources

Pre-Med Resource Guide 

Medical Admissions Prep Program (MAPP) 

The School of Medicine held its first annual Summer Preparation Program for the MCAT in April 2001. With its amazing success, we have continued to offer the program for students preparing for medical school. 

Also included in the program is a Kaplan Course which reviews physics, general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, verbal reasoning, and math. Students have supplemental instruction to augment the Kaplan Course from a qualified tutor, as well as a group study and access to test banks and practice exams. To ensure readiness for the application for medical school, all students participate in a professional writing seminar that focuses on personal statements.

The MAPP application period are usually open in the Spring (closing in early-April).

Pre-Health Dreamers

Is a network of over 1000 health career-focused undocumented students. Among other resources, they have developed a consolidated list of some of the health professions' specific opportunities that may be of interest. For general information, the National Association for Student Financial Aid Administrators has put together a tip sheet for undocumented students that has links to scholarship resources and eligibility information.

Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program

The mission of the Intermountain PREP (IM-PREP) is to build a biomedical research workforce reflecting the talent pool of our population. The University of Utah is committed to fortifying, sustaining and amplifying the STEM pipeline that trains and launches a research workforce representative of our communities.

IM-PREP will specifically address the leaks in the pipeline leading from undergraduate to doctoral training of groups of underrepresented in STEM. IM-PREP focuses on students from medically underserved backgrounds that demonstrate a strong drive for research and would benefit from additional research-intensive training experiences and professional development, enhancing their successful transition to top-tier doctoral programs, as well as their long-term retention in PhD-based career tracks.

Humanitas MD Scholarship Fund

The Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine's Humanitas MD Scholars provides scholarships to students committed to providing medical care to medically underserved communities. Doctors who reflect Utah's demographics are critical for a healthy, thriving community. Scholarship support gives students more opportunities to study and practice in Utah. Let's keep our best and brightest in Utah! Many qualified applicants from all backgrounds choose to go elsewhere due to scholarship support.
