Welcome to HCMP!

Interested in physician shadowing and learning about the world of medicine? If your answers are “yes”, then you just might be a perfect fit for the Health Careers Mentorship Program here at the University of Texas at Austin! To find out more about us, check out the categories above.

Thank you for your interest in joining HCMP. Please check back in the Fall 2022 semester for recruitment information about the next intern class. Please direct any questions to admissions.hcmp@gmail.com.

Fall 2022 application cycle changes:
  • 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 Fall 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, research PI, work/volunteer supervisor, etc.), from The University of Texas or from another institution. Unfortunately, this does not include undergraduates even if they are in a supervisory position such as UGTA or FRI mentor. This also does not include Graduate Teaching Assistants.
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.
