Mission Statement | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

The TTUHSC Office of Continuing Medical Education (CME) serves the continuing medical education needs of practicing physicians and others on the healthcare team.  These include faculty and community physicians in Lubbock and the surrounding region including the South Plains and Panhandle of Texas.

The TTUHSC Office of CME operates from the main campus in Lubbock. The Permian Basin and Amarillo campuses have extension CME offices to meet the diverse needs of faculty at those locations as well as the continuing education needs of geographically separated healthcare providers of the region. These healthcare providers are delivering care across large geographic areas from the metro areas of the TTUHSC campuses to rural, ranching and agricultural based populations within a 300 mile radius. It is important to the overall mission of TTUHSC to deliver education within the communities that feed our population as well as areas where our faculty and graduates live and practice. 

The expected results of the TTUHSC Office of CME overall CME program are to plan education that changes competence and performance.  The Office of CME will measure and evaluate changes in competence for all education activities.  Measuring performance changes will be judiciously assessed for selected activities.
