The John Sealy School of Medicine at The University of Texas Medical Branch is excited to announce that we will begin offering in-person Open House sessions for prospective medical school applicants that are not currently applying to our program.

Our sessions offer prospective applicants a unique opportunity to learn more about admission prerequisites and other requirements, the application process for admissions, medical school curriculum, and the UTMB campus culture.

Each session will consist of a formal presentation, a student panel, and a campus tour.

For questions about the event, please email us at jsoutrch@utmb.edu.
