Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso honored its Foster School of Medicine graduates with an in-person commencement ceremony at the historic Plaza Theatre in Downtown El Paso.
Spring commencement ceremonies a year ago were conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while commencement ceremonies in December 2020 were conducted with limited in-person formats.
Ninety-one students who completed their Medical Doctorate graduated on May 21. All members of the Class of 2021 matched to residency programs across the nation and in El Paso, including programs at TTUHSC El Paso.
Medical residents often remain in the region in which they are trained, fulfilling the Foster School of Medicine’s mission to increase the number of practicing physicians in the El Paso region.
Currently, there are 612 graduates of the Foster School of Medicine who have become or are on their way to becoming practicing physicians.
