IM Residency Program

Welcome to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso Internal Medicine Residency Program! Our residency offers broad training in general internal medicine, as well as internal medicine subspecialties, and also offers several fellowship training programs.

Since we are located on the border of Mexico, in the El Paso, Texas/Juárez, Mexico/Las Cruces, New Mexico metropolis (population 2.7 million), we have a very broad clinical exposure. Our main clinical site, University Medical Center of El Paso, is a Level I trauma center and comprehensive stroke center, and has been named several times in America's Top 100 hospitals.

We have recently changed to the 6 + 2 block scheduling system to enhance our residents' educational experience, and use our simulation center for procedural and code experience. We hope you will seriously consider us for your residency training, and are looking forward to meeting you soon!
