A Criminal Background Check - all students, faculty and staff are required to undergo a criminal background check prior to commencement of activities on campus. The same is true for matriculation to the vast majority of medical and dental schools around the country. SMDEP participation is contingent upon completion of a background check. The University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHealth) Human Resources Department will run the check at no cost to you.
Individuals who do not submit to the background check will be ineligible for program participation.
Upon confirmation by the applicant of accepted status, the participant will receive an e-mail from a UTHealth Human Resources representative, who will initiate the criminal background check process.
Accepted scholars are required to bring a statistics-friendly calculator for the Statistics course: Texas Instruments 83+ or 84+.
