It’s Time To Get Started

Should you start thinking about this now? Yes—the sooner, the better! More than half of all medical students and many other healthcare professionals decide on their careers before they enter college. Future applicants are already building their case for entrance while in high school with a deep and sustained interest in healthcare.

That being said, it’s never too late to begin, and AMP Honors Program is committed to helping returning and non-traditional students nurture their potential, too. We know you have a busy schedule, so AMP is designed to be time efficient. By starting early, students can gain knowledge and experience in just a few hours per month.

AMP Honors Program FAQ

The single most important factor in getting into your program of choice is your level of commitment and work ethic. There is no shortcut to reaching your goals. AMP Honors Program is designed to guide, motivate, inform, and provide opportunities for you to develop into the type of holistic candidate sought by school admissions committees. AMP, however, cannot guarantee your future acceptance into college, medical school, or other competitive healthcare school.

By engaging in AMP Honors Program, you can gain awareness of various healthcare topics and start to build expertise in a specific healthcare field of interest. AMP will make it easier for you to network, build meaningful experiences, and participate in community events that will help you progress as a person. AMP seeks to develop the whole competitive package, beyond grades and test scores alone, and help you become the best version of yourself. That is what school admission committees want to see.

The program is designed to be time efficient, recognizing that high school and undergraduate students today have busy schedules and numerous obligations. The time commitment for the program will vary by student, but it is expected to be minutes per week or hours per month. Following the program design, you will read a couple of interesting, educational articles and features each week and engage directly with healthcare experts and professionals within the platform a few times per month. Over time, your reading and interactions with experts will elevate your understanding of the healthcare field.

Similarly, the investment of time in networking and participating in community health opportunities will also vary by student. Spend most of your time in the specific area of healthcare that interests you most and learn as much as you can; it will benefit you more than getting only superficially involved in many areas.

Early engagement in the AMP Honors Program will give you insights into medicine and other health professions, so you can determine the right path for you. Whether you pursue a career in medicine, another healthcare field, or a career outside of healthcare, the knowledge and experience you gain from AMP will help you develop into a well-rounded student candidate with an impressive track record.

Many students in both high school and undergraduate settings start out with the intent of becoming a doctor and then change course along the way. AMP allows you to build your healthcare identity and a strong application to reflect it.

AMP Honors Program is a growing and dynamic network of passionate users learning from one another. As long as you’re still open and curious, we encourage you to stay! We have everything from custom-made coursework to industry news, so there’s always new content no matter what career stage you’re in.

Yes! AMP Honors Program is open to students at any point in their academic career, whether they’re high school students, undergraduate students, or established professionals looking to pivot into healthcare. That said, early engagement in this program is advised to develop a track record of deep and sustained interest in healthcare. In other words, the sooner the better—so sign up today!
