TTUHSC Amarillo Internal Medicine

The Department of Internal Medicine at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at Amarillo is dedicated to patient care, teaching at the resident and medical student levels and research. It's a strong and growing department with a close faculty-resident/student interrelationship and a strong foundation in general internal medicine.

Established in the mid-1970's as a regional campus of the flagship Texas Tech in Lubbock, with a goal of training physicians for the underserved West Texas and Panhandle region,TTUHSC-Amarillo is now essentially autonomous in its day-to-day life under the leadership of the Regional Dean and the Regional Department Chairs of Internal Medicine, Surgery, OB-GYN, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, and Psychiatry. And while many graduates have remained in the area, many others have gone on to fellowships and practices elsewhere in the state and nation.

Our Internal Medicine program strikes a good balance between clinical and didactic teaching, individual clinical experience and supervision, and public and private institutions, with patients across the entire socioeconomic spectrum. We see the health problems typical of various groups, the common and the uncommon, the general and the subspecialty-oriented, the inpatient and outpatient. Our efforts were confirmed in September, 2004, with continued full accreditation of our program by the Residency Review Committee of the ACGME. Another important date for us was May, 2002, when we moved our academic offices and outpatient clinical practice into the new Texas Tech School of Medicine building.
