Welcome to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, where a dedication to education,
patient care and research has made an impact on the health of West Texas and beyond
for almost 40 years.
To date we have trained more than 10,000 health care professionals, and we meet the
health care needs of more than 2.5 million people who live throughout a vast 108-county
area stretching from the Texas Panhandle south to the Permian Basin and west into
Eastern New Mexico.
We have established ourselves as a leader in education and patient care and are building
a top-ranked research environment with significant studies under way in areas such
as aging, cancer, reproduction, genetic diseases and rural health. In addition, our
location adjacent to Texas Tech University provides a unique opportunity for advancement
of knowledge through scientific collaborations.
Beginning in 1969 as Texas Tech University School of Medicine, today TTUHSC is a
seven-school university located in Abilene, Amarillo, Dallas/Fort Worth, El Paso,
Lubbock, Midland and Odessa.
Our goal is to become known as an institution that advances knowledge for students
and practicing health care professionals through educational opportunities and research
while providing quality patient care and service.
We invite you to be a part of it.
