Texas Tech plans health college; medical disciplines to be comprehensive

The city soon will have a new university producing hundreds of doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and allied health professionals, officials from Texas Tech University announced Thursday.

Texas Tech University System Chancellor Kent Hance presented his vision for the system’s El Paso campus, which now includes a school of nursing and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine. The enrollment for those schools is expected to eventually reach a combined 900 students.

Over the next several years, the campus will be transformed into the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso—the fourth university in the system—and will also include schools of pharmacy, dentistry and allied health.

“It’s ambitious, but it’s something we will attain,” Hance said.

He said neither an exact budget nor timeline has been established, but he estimated it would take up to about 10 years to have all components of the new health sciences center in place.
