Prematriculation Summer Program

About the Program

The Pre-matriculation Summer Program (PSP) will be held in person this year from July 8 - 17, 2024 at TUSM. PSP offers guidance, support, resources, learning approaches, networking and relationship building with students, faculty, staff, and medical school deans. The program also offers a very high-level overview (with study tips) of academic content in the first year of medical school.

  • PSP is designed to facilitate your transition to TUSM for students who wish to take advantage of this resource
  • PSP offers you the opportunity to meet members of the Tufts community (including students, faculty and staff) which may facilitate creating a sense of community
  • There is no additional cost to enroll in the PSP.

The courses are taught by faculty, graduate research students, and medical students. These individuals may be closely involved with tutoring and teaching the courses during the academic year. Additional to coursework, there are workshops generally devoted to student concerns on such issues as tips on “medical school survival”, and questions and answers about graduate school life. Accommodations in the Posner dorm is provided.

If interested in enrolling in PSP or have further questions, please contact Marlene Jreaswec, Program Manager for the Office for Multicultural Affairs at

Students may also contact the Office for Multicultural Affairs at 617-636-0992 for additional information.
