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.
We also provide a monthly newsletter that is sent out to faculty across the Amarillo
campus. Check out our November Beat.
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.
