Welcome to the Community Medical School of Amarillo!
The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) at Amarillo is proud to
present its fourth annual Community Medical School. We have an exciting program in
store for attendees this year. Steve Urban, M.D., Department of Family and Community
Medicine, will begin the series with a presentation titled, Medical Myths. Other topics
in the series include health care reform, adult vaccines and the InfantRisk Center.
We are experiencing incredible growth at TTUHSC Amarillo, and we are expanding our
mission of providing the area’s best medical care and the highest quality of medical
education and training to our students.
We want to extend this educational opportunity to the people we serve, and we are
anxious for the community to see our wonderful facilities and the high quality of
our providers. Through the Community Medical School, we believe you will see and
feel our physicians’ passion for the medical sciences and their excitement of discovery.
We hope you attend as many of the five Community Medical School classes as possible
