The understanding and appreciation of medical research is considered an essential component of the curriculum. All students are strongly encouraged to obtain research experience. Numerous opportunities are available for students to join the research of faculty members in a variety of laboratories, clinics, and departments.

TTUHSC is the perfect place for research because of the teaching. People who are discovering new things should teach it and people who are on cutting edge should be presenting to students and giving students opportunities to be involved.
