What About Texas Tech?

Kim Peck, M.D., Interim Assistant Dean of Admissions and Minority Affairs A real-world medical education awaits aspiring physicians at Texas Tech School of Medicine. Changes in the health care system have created a demand for new types of physicians. Managed health care and other reforms have created a need for physicians with new skills. Our medical school curriculum addresses these needs. The goal of the School of Medicine is to promote excellence in the clinical, scientific, and humanistic skills of our graduates and to instill the competence and compassion that distinguishes outstanding physicians. In addition, Texas Tech has three dual degree programs: the MD/MBA degree program where students can receive both degrees in four years, the MD/PhD degree program where both degrees are obtained in a seven year curriculum, and the newest program, the JD/MD degree program where students obtain their medical and law degrees in a six year program. Starting 2010, TTUHSC School of Medicine will offer the innovative Family Medicine Accelerated Track in which select medical students will complete their medical education in three years instead of four.

Since the medical school graduated its first class in 1974, it has produced over 3000 physicians. Texas Tech University School of Medicine is an institution on rise in virtually all areas of the health sciences and this is particularly true for the School of Medicine. The applicant pool is very competitive to fill a medical class size of 150, a number recently increased from 147.

Specific course requirements have been kept to a minimum to allow and encourage the student to have a broad and well-rounded education. The four-year curriculum provides a broad introduction to medical knowledge while developing the student's analytical and problem-solving skills. Students will have an opportunity for clinical experiences starting in the first year through formal class work and mentoring by practicing physicians.

Research opportunities are available in the summer after the first year and through the Research Honors Program in which the student devotes a full year to research between the second and third years.

In an effort to recruit a highly qualified and diverse student body, which reflects the demographics of the West Texas region, race/ethnicity as well as a socioeconomically disadvantaged background are among the many factors considered in the admission process.
