About the TTUHSC @ El Paso

Texas Tech El Paso has played a vital role in El Paso's healthcare history. It has been the academic home to many outstanding medical students, residents, and faculty.

In 1969, the 61st Texas Legislature gave approval for a School of Medicine in West Texas. The School of Medicine would be a regional Institution, establishing campuses in Lubbock, El Paso, Amarillo, and Odessa.

The objectives of creating the School of Medicine were to provide quality medical education, address problems of healthcare delivery in rural areas, and develop programs throughout West Texas emphasizing the importance of primary healthcare.

In 1973, The Regional Academic Health Center in El Paso, now known as Texas Tech El Paso, officially opened with a teaching affiliation with R. E. Thomason General Hospital, accepting the entire medical school class for the first five years.

Today Texas Tech El Paso has close to 1,000 faculty and staff members. It is a flourishing health sciences center and medical center with clinics located in East, West, Central, and Northeast El Paso. Through community partnerships Texas Tech El Paso faculty members lend their skills to underserved areas lacking adequate healthcare.

Texas Tech El Paso's teaching affiliation with Thomason Hospital has remained steady throughout the years. Other affilitions include William Beaumont Army Medical Center and Providence Hospital.
