TTUHSC El Paso was built on philanthropy. Because of the shared values of community visionaries, our health sciences center has made the Paso del Norte region a hub for education, research and patient care in West Texas. Without community support, our campus would not be what it is today: a free-standing university under the TTU System and home to the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine, Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing and L. Frederick Francis Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, where nearly 1,000 students have earned their degrees.

With every physician and nurse we graduate and with every new research in the field, we’re transforming the future of health care in El Paso and beyond. Your investment, of any amount, makes a difference for many future health care professionals who will serve the Paso del Norte region.
