Graduate Medical Education
Welcome to the Office of Graduate Medical Education at TTUHSC! No matter which of our programs interests you, our faculty and staff are united in our pursuit of a common vision: to extend excellent, life-giving care to patients across the healthcare spectrum, especially in areas with the most critical needs and shortages.
Core to the mission is developing high quality health care professionals via the schools of Allied Health, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.We hold a strong Commitment to Graduate Medical Education. The School of Medicine hosts 54 residency and fellowship programs with approximately 775 physicians-in-training on campuses in Lubbock, Amarillo, and Permian Basin.
The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is a rich and diverse group of physicians, scientists, professionals and support people who join in the agenda of learning, caring and healing. If you are a young physician considering further professional development, consider joining us!
The goal of medical education (residency and fellowship training), is to become certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties to practice in a medical specialty.
The Texas Tech residency and fellowship programs are developed in the context of the Physician General Competencies as expressed by the ABMS and the ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education).
