Admissions

Pre-MD Ambassador Program


The PreMD Ambassadors program is a unique opportunity that gives undergraduate students interested in medicine access to incredible resources at the College of Medicine – Tucson. PreMD Ambassadors work with the Admissions Office on a variety of projects, assist with major events, participate in community service and lead tours, while learning in-depth skills to prepare them for their own medical school application.

As a PreMD Ambassador, you will learn about the educational paths that you and your fellow students can take to medical school and about the programs and opportunities offered by the College of Medicine. The program lasts for a full academic year, during which you'll remain enrolled full-time in your undergraduate major. Each ambassador functions with little supervision. They maintain a high degree of professionalism, reliability, and confidentiality.
