About the Program Curriculum Application Process

Current Residents Salary Support

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso Ob/Gyn Residency Program prides itself on refining the skills of its residents through dynamic training and a superb curriculum. The uniquely diverse patient population, the state-of-the-art Medical School and the new UMC Children's Hospital are a few of the assets that support the resident in training. Each resident is equipped with all tools necessary to excel in their residency training and beyond.

Research is an integral part of this program's residency requirements. All residents are expected to conduct a clinical research project in collaboration with faculty mentors. The project is presented during the fourth year at the Resident's Research Day. If assistance is needed regarding HIPAA training, IRB instructions, assistance with literature reviews, proposal writing, iRIS submission, or information on research opportunities and funding, please contact: Loretta Hernandez, MPH, at 545-6611 ext 290 or e-mail at

Every morning we have morning reports followed by a scheduled educational activity. These include journal clubs, discussion of ACOG Technical Bulletins, reviews of assigned chapters from textbooks and quizzes. There are teaching rounds with faculty in each of the inpatient services. On Fridays we have grand rounds where our faculty and residents as well as invited speakers cover new developments and subjects in our specialty. Residents actively participate in the education of third and fourth year medical students during their clerkship in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
