Anesthesiology | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

Chairman's Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Anesthesiology of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center’s School of Medicine.  We think Lubbock, and in particular our Texas Tech program, is one of the best kept secrets around! Over the past several years we have hired many new faculty who are excellent educators, our anesthesiologists cover the intensive care units, and we have an active simulation center also run by anesthesiologists.  

University Medical Center is the largest medical facility between Dallas and Albuquerque, and has been recognized as among the Best Companies To Work For in Texas, and as one of Truven’s Top 100 Hospitals. We are located on the main campus of Texas Tech University.  Lubbock is a “college town” with many fine restaurants and cultural activities, offering a high quality of living at a reasonable cost.

We hope to entice you to look further through these pages, and that you may perhaps gain the flavor of our department and of Lubbock which we enjoy.
