Early Dedication to Medical Education (EDME)

What is EDME?

EDME is for all high school students interested in becoming physicians. EDME sessions are hosted by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine. 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 their 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 the Office of Admissions at
