Welcome to the website of the Department of Anesthesiology of Texas Tech University
Health Sciences Center’s School of Medicine. We think Lubbock, and in particular
our Texas Tech program, is one of the best kept secrets around! Over the past several
years we have hired many new faculty who are excellent educators, our anesthesiologists
cover the intensive care units, and we have an active simulation center also run by
anesthesiologists. We have a long and distinguished reputation in pain medicine both
nationally and internationally, and our founding chairman, Dr. Gabor Racz, continues
an active practice which includes significant close contact with our residents and
University Medical Center is the largest medical facility between Dallas and Albuquerque,
and has been recognized as among the Best Companies To Work For in Texas, and as one
of Truyden’s Top 100 Hospitals. We are located on the main campus of Texas Tech University,
a school of some 33,000 students and the largest university campus in the country.
Lubbock is thus a “college town” with many fine restaurants and cultural activities,
offering a high quality of living at a reasonable cost.
We hope to entice you to look further through these pages, and that you may perhaps
gain the flavor of our department and of Lubbock which we enjoy.
