Changes to upcoming application cycle:
  • Reduced volunteering hour requirement; applicants will be required to submit proof of at least 60 hours of clinical and/or non-clinical volunteering before the start of the Spring 2022 shadowing period. If you have questions on what counts towards “clinical volunteering”, please refer to the recruitment Facebook page or email admissions.hcmp@gmail.com.
  • Expanded options for Letter of Recommendation (LOR) Writers; instead of only professors and lab Principal Investigators, we will now accept LORs from anyone who you think can speak to your personal characteristics (ex: professor/graduate TA, research PI/graduate student, work/volunteer supervisor, etc.), from The University of Texas or from another institution you were previously enrolled at. Unfortunately, this does not include undergraduates even if they are in a supervisory position such as UGTA or FRI mentor.
If you have any general questions please post in the “HCMP Fall 2022 Recruitment” Facebook group because many others may have the same question as you. Otherwise individual questions can be directed to admissions.hcmp@gmail.com.
