UTCOMLS Ambassador Program

College of Medicine and Life Sciences logoThe UTCOMLS Ambassador Program works with the Office of Admissions and the Dean’s Office to bridge the gap between current UTCOMLS students and prospective medical, graduate, and physician assistant students. Founded upon three pillars of ambassadorship, mentorship, and education, the Ambassadors coordinate the following events on our Health Science Campus.
