MISSION STATEMENT

Provide the highest standard of urological care in a compassionate and ethical manner.
Pursue academic, clinical, and technical excellence.
Foster an environment of intellectual curiosity and create life-long learners.
Promote leadership and mentorship at all levels.

The Texas Tech Urology residency program aims to produce diverse, skilled, and compassionate Urologists by providing outstanding clinical and surgical training.  Our goal is to prepare our residents to be independent and self-assured.  We train residents so they can choose to go into fellowship training, private practice in the region, or academic medicine. 

Our program is committed to providing an opportunity for residents to perform progressively more independent decision-making and clinical activity in a culture of strong and committed mentorship.
