Transfer Pre-Health Mentoring Program (TPMP)

Through mentorship, TPMP allows students the opportunity to provide guidance to first year pre-health transfers to help them navigate the challenging path to health professions schools.

Additionally, TPMP serves as a hub for all pre-health transfer students at UC Davis. This program offers events designed to answer common questions that pre-health students have, as well as create a thriving transfer culture at our university.
