Pre-Med First STEP

Note: Pre-Med 1st STEP accepts new applications during the beginning of every Spring semester.


The Pre-Med First STEP (Science Training Enrichment Program) is an initiative that fosters support and encouragement for undergraduate students who seek to enroll at the University of Alabama School of Medicine (UASOM) by providing successful mentor-mentee pairings between doctors and current UAB students. In addition to forming meaningful relationships, the Pre-Med First STEP can assist with information and tips on topics such as: (1) Academic Guidance (course selection, study skills, post-undergraduate school planning); (2) Career Advice (job shadowing/ hands on experience, resume critiques, interviewing tips, general career guidance); and (3) Personal Development & Social Enrichment (networking, hobbies, recreation, cultural/ethnic sensitivity). 

All Pre-Med 1st STEP applicants must have:

  • A minimum 3.0 GPA
  • A demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in medicine
  • A copy of your resume
  • A copy of your school transcript
  • One professional letter of recommendation
  • Completed application
