Early Dedication to Medical Education (EDME)


What is EDME?

EDME is for all high school students who are interested in becoming physicians someday. We host sessions throughout each semester at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. These are usually in the evening during the week, include supper, and feature an informative and useful presentation. We also visit schools in the area to talk to students who might want to attend medical school in the future.

How do I become a part of EDME?

It’s easy! Just come to any of the sessions – they’re open to high school students, parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, or anyone else who has an interest! You can keep up with what we’re doing if you join the EDME Group on Facebook®. You can also e-mail me at

What’s next for EDME?

EDME sessions have begun for this semester, we hope to see you there! Sessions have been scheduled for the following dates:

Also, be sure to attend our annual Pre-Medical Conference in April.

Summer Enrichment Program (SEP)

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine will be hosting it's annual Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) for upcoming high school seniors that are interested in medicine. This program will be similar to last year’s which included sessions in critical thinking, learning styles, professionalism, leadership, and others. Mock interviews, healthcare exposure and volunteer activities will also be offered to the selected group of students.
