The School of Natural and Computational Sciences congratulates Crystal Garcia for being accepted as one of 28 participants in the UT Southwestern Scholars Program in Organic Chemistry (SPOC). This program begins Tuesday, June 1, 2010 and ends Thursday, August 5, 2010.
The SPOC includes an exciting research component in which students will be randomly assigned to one of two organic chemistry research projects. The experimental course content will include supplemental exercises, and a computer game or written exercises. All the selected students benefit from this program as both groups will receive a strong foundation in organic chemistry. and will participate in a clinical preceptorship.
Crystal is looking forward to the summer, “I hope to get some new insights into the medical profession as well as learning more organic chemistry!”
We wish her well and are hoping to get an email once in a while to let us know how she is getting on!
“On behalf of the Joint Admission Medical Program Council, I am pleased to inform you of your acceptance into the Joint Admission Medical Program. As a participating JAMP student, you are a member of an elite group of highly qualified students selected to participate in this program.
As a participant of JAMP you will be matched to one of the participating Texas medical schools for your first summer program internship. The summer program dates range from May 23rd to June 25th or from May 30th to July 2nd.
Congratulations and welcome to the JAMP family. The JAMP Council, Staff and Faculty Director at your university are proud to have you as a participant in this exciting program.”
Bryce says he is “definitely excited!” He must maintain a 3.25 GPA and complete two summer internships at two different medical schools in Texas. “Then, I’ll be good to go!”
When you see Mr. Stash, please congratulate him on this achievement!

The January student preview focused on athletics, but a number of students stopped by the SNCS table for information and a chat with the faculty.
Dr. Larry Sharp, left, visited with one prospective student interested in the Biomedical Science program.
Other faculty members who attended the preview included Drs. Shin and Veltkamp (Chemistry), Dr. DiFrancesca (Biology), Dr. McCoun (Math), Mr. Brozovic (Computer Science), and Dr. Bykov (Physics).
Dr. Ralph Turner, physician and McMurry alumnus also put in an appearance!
We have several more previews to come, so we hope to meet more students who are interested in the biomedical sciences and student research.
