SOM Purpose, Mission and Vision
Founded in 1969, the TTUHSC School of Medicine has continually worked to address the shortage of physicians in West Texas by providing innovative educational opportunities to medical student and residents that are intended to supply competent and compassionate medical professionals for a geographically expansive area. The medical education program provides sound inter-disciplinary training that integrates basic sciences knowledge and clinical skill and focuses on high standards and comprehensive evaluation. The research strategy of the school concentrates on collaborative efforts that enhance the clinical programs relevant to the region and provide advanced training opportunities for students and residents. Centers of excellence guide research endeavors in many areas giving special attention to cancer treatment, women’s health, aging, addiction, and other disease processes. The clinical practice strives to utilize state-of-the-art technology to effectively meet the growing needs of a diverse and largely rural patient population through strong partnerships with clinical affiliates.
To be recognized regionally and nationally for innovation and collaboration — great people with great ideas.
