About the Office

More than thirty-six years ago, the Office of the Dean for the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine El Paso was established as part of the organizational structure under the Texas Tech University Health Sciences System centralized in Lubbock, Texas. As part of a multi-regional campus entity, the Dean’s Office oversees all academic, service, and research activities, providing executive leadership in the management of operations for the El Paso Regional Campus. Since receiving LCME accreditation as a full-fledged four-year medical school in February 2008, the El Paso administrative office has transitioned into the Office of the Founding Dean in conjunction with the newly accredited Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Paul L. Foster School of Medicine. In this capacity, the Office of the Founding Dean now encompasses the management oversight of operations for both the TTUHSC Regional El Paso Campus and the El Paso Paul L. Foster School of Medicine.

The Founding Dean serves at the discretion of the President of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center System and leads an executive administrative team comprised of one Sr. Associate Dean and seven Associate Deans assigned to the various academic, service, and research initiatives.
