Early Dedication to Medical Education (EDME)
What is EDME?
EDME is for any high school student who is interested in becoming a physician. EDME sessions are hosted throughout each semester at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. Sessions feature informative presentations encompassing a variety of specialties offered within the field of medicine. They are held once a month, in the evening and a light dinner is provided.
We also visit local and surrounding area schools to provide an in-depth perspective into medical school through presentations where current TTUHSC SOM students share personal experiences.
How do I become a part of EDME?
It’s easy! Just come to any of the sessions – they’re open to all high school students, parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, and anyone who has an interest in medicine. Stay informed about EDME opportunities and events by connecting with us on Facebook. You may also e-mail our Lead Advisor at Dominique.Massey@ttuhsc.edu.
