Welcome to the School of Medicine in Amarillo
Since 1978, the School of Medicine at Amarillo has trained medical students and residents with particular emphasis in clinical care. Over 70 medical students and over 75 residents receive training on our campus every year. Because of superior bed-side teaching, a high faculty-to-student ratio, and a wide range of clinical facilities our student and resident educational experiences are highly rated. Three hospitals, the local health department, Panhandle Mental Health Mental Retardation, several area nursing homes, and many private physician offices provide training sites. The Texas Tech Physician Clinics provide over 115,000 visits per year. Fellowships in geriatrics, women's health, and rural obstetrics add to our student and resident training program.
Research in Amarillo includes NIH-funded investigators in cancer immunology. Faculty participate in many multicenter clinical trials in cancer treatment. Our newly established Faculty Clinical Research Unit assists students and residents to collaborate with faculty and to prepare abstracts and case reports.
