Overview

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program that welcomed its first class in 1970. The School of Medicine was originally founded to train more physicians to serve the underserved population of West Texas.

By the fourth year, students are allowed the flexibility to build their own clinical experiences based on their interests.
