Department of Surgery
Nationally recognized and regionally trusted; advancing surgical science and technique. Bringing tomorrow’s surgical care to today.
To deliver the most compassionate, highest quality and scientifically proven surgical care to the El Paso region and to advance the field of surgery through research and education of future surgeons and physicians.
While resident physicians are responsible for patient care, the degree of resident involvement increases throughout each program year. During the chief year, residents reinforce their expertise as they assist in teaching and supervising medical students and junior-level residents.
The objective of research is to prepare residents to evaluate literature, which requires a certain amount of discipline, a regular reading schedule and some information that has not been covered in medical school.
The TTUHSC El Paso Department of Surgery is announcing a new ACGME-approved surgical critical care fellowship, set to begin in August 2021.
