    PPC @ Texas A&M
    Many exceptional students contemplate a career in medicine.  If you currently work with such students, allow me to introduce you to a very exciting program at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine (TAMHSC-COM). The Partnership for Primary Care (PPC) program can help aspiring students make the most of their scholastic achievements. The program is designed to recruit and educate primary care physicians for rural and underserved areas of Texas.
     
    Through this innovative program, honors-caliber students from rural regions, medically underserved communities or areas with health professional shortages have the opportunity to gain automatic acceptance into medical school upon completion of their undergraduate degree.  In order to be eligible for this program, a student must attend one of the eight Texas A&M University System universities and/or South Texas College in McAllen as well as maintain a 3.25 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) through the end of their freshman year of college.  Additionally, they must maintain a minimum 3.50 cumulative GPA each year thereafter and complete the required medical school prerequisite course work with no grade below a “C”.
     
    If one of your students is admitted to the PPC program, he or she will be assured a place in the College of Medicine from their first day of undergraduate study, therefore minimizing the stress and anxiety of the medical school application process. Students accepted in to the PPC program must meet certain benchmark requirements during their undergraduate work and maintain an excellent academic record, but we trust these students will be up to the task.
     
    If they currently are high school seniors or first year college students at a TAMUS school, they can then apply for the Partnership for Primary Care Program.  In order for a student to be eligible for the PPC program, they must meet the following criteria: possess a GPA of 3.50 or equivalent; prefer that the student be in the top 10% of their graduating class; have achieved a minimum 1200 SAT (Critical Reading plus Math) or 26 ACT equivalent; and reside in a rural, medically underserved or health professional shortage area in Texas.
     
    For more information about the PPC program, please visit our website at http://medicine.tamhsc.edu/admissions/ppc/index.html and select “Qualifications” and the click on the HRSA website to determine your student’s eligibility based on their home address.  If eligible, the student(s) can then select “PPC Admissions” to start the application process and to submit their application.
