Application | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

You are encouraged to start the application process as soon as possible. Please note that no final decision on selection can be made on an incomplete application. Submitting an acceptable application is the responsibility of the prospective resident. We do not set a specific minimum score requirement for the USMLE because the Selection Committee views the application as a whole, but  your score must be competitive. If your application is chosen by the Selection Committee you will be invited for interviews. The first interviews are scheduled in November and December. Your interviews will be scheduled on Fridays when the faculty is readily available.
