It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Web site. Our university is committed to the noble mission of improving the health of people by providing high quality educational opportunities to students and health care professionals, advancing knowledge through scholarship and research, and providing patient care and service. It is in the context of this tri-part mission and through the work of our Schools of Nursing, Allied Health Sciences, Pharmacy, Graduate Biomedical Sciences, and our Medical Schools in El Paso and Lubbock that we strive passionately to improve the wellbeing and health in the communities we serve.
In a real sense, our multi-campus institution is fully committed to serving the people of Texas and the borderland, a fact that is demonstrated by the buzz of activity that is evident on our campuses in Lubbock, El Paso, Dallas, Amarillo, Abilene, Midland, Odessa, and Marble Falls. El Paso, long a part of the TTUHSC family, is now emerging as a major, research-intensive flagship medical school on the border, but every one of our campuses is vibrant and focused on the discovery of knowledge. We are proud to welcome you and show you what we are doing to advance the state of knowledge in the health sciences, to care for patients, and to transform the lives of our many students of many ages and backgrounds, who have chosen careers to serve others.
Thank you for your interest in the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
Tedd Mitchell, M.D.
