TTUHSC Residents in the clinic

Welcome to Graduate Medical Education in West Texas, where that same "Can Do" attitude that transformed a wilderness into world-leading cattle, oil and cotton enterprises is expressed in the delivery of high quality medical care and medical education. The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center serves approximately the western half of the state. 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. The Health Sciences Center holds a strong Commitment to Graduate Medical Education. The School of Medicine hosts 34 residency and fellowship programs with approximately 500 physicians-in-training on campuses in Lubbock, Amarillo, Permian Basin, and El Paso.

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).

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!
