Commitment to Education, Patient Care and Research

Beginning in 1969 as Texas Tech University School of Medicine, today Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is a five-school university located in Abilene, Amarillo, Dallas, Lubbock, Midland and Odessa. To date we have trained more than 25,000 health care professionals and researchers who meet the health care needs of more than 2.5 million people who live in the Texas Panhandle south to the Permian Basin and west into Eastern New Mexico.

In 2019 TTUHSC celebrated a milestone anniversary of 50 years, and unveiled the newest addition to it's Lubbock campus, the University Center, seen pictured above. The new facility provides a more seamless experience for students and visitors and houses the Office of the President; Office of External Relations; the F. Marie Hall Institute for Rural and Community Health; Office of Student Relations; the Office of Admissions for the School of Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences; Alumni Relations; Office of Global Health; the F. Marie Hall Sim Life Center; the Writing Center; administrative offices and a spirit shop.

The new and expanded spaces will bind our campus together in ways that encourage interaction and promote collaboration. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, I look forward to all that we will accomplish together an institution in the next 50 years.

F. Marie Hall Institute for Rural Health

As long as people have tried to tame the land, there has been the desire to harness the energy of West Texas: to maximize its rich resources and to enjoy the sense of community no matter the distance between neighbors. Distances that shrink at the crossroads where innovation meets determination. This crossroads creates opportunity, opportunity that can be described in a single concept: to Connect. MORE

Inspiring the Next Generation of Physicians

Eleven-year-old Sevyn Ross-Stewart listened carefully as the fifth grade class diagnosed and helped cure a patient. “I never imagined becoming a doctor was a possibility for me,” Sevyn said. “I used to think the stuff doctors do, I could never do it,” Sevyn said. “When I came here to do it, it wasn’t that bad. I saw how doctors find cures, and I saw how the insides of the bodies work and stuff.” More
