Family and Community Medicine
Residency Program » Philosophy & Administration
To ignite the ember that burns for continuous learning...
To find equilibrium in the demands
of medicine, family and personal growth..
To develop an abundant fund of knowledge and skill...
To offer a compassionate hand
to those who come to us for care...
These are among the goals of the
Family Medicine Residency Program
at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lubbock
Year after year, our residents are among the very best. They bring to the program their curiosity and their desire to grow as physicians. In turn, we provide them with the most current medical curricula possible in a setting that encourages growth. We endeavor to fulfill our residents' unique educational and personal needs so that they may flourish in a wide range of fluid and challenging medical environments. Just as we treat the whole patient, we encourage our residents to live whole and balanced lives. At Texas Tech, all residents are trusted colleagues from their first days with us; their opinions and contributions enhance the program's academic integrity and its practice capacities. Our faculty and residents enjoy the respect of their peers throughout the institution and community, and they serve in positions of leadership at Texas Tech and its training facilities. Come visit our program. Meet our residents and faculty. Tour our facilities. We extend an open hand to you.
