TTUHSC El Paso’s Medical Practice Reaccredited for Providing Top-Quality Patient Care

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso’s medical practice has been reaccredited by The Joint Commission for outpatient care.

Accreditation by TJC is a symbol of quality that reflects a commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso, a multi-specialty medical practice with seven locations throughout the city of El Paso, underwent a rigorous on-site survey in April 2018. TJC’s team of surveyors evaluated the clinic sites for several quality standards: care coordination, monitoring of procedures involving sedation or anesthesia, infection prevention and control, medication management, and patient education and training.

“[Having The Joint Commission accreditation] is a badge of honor,” said Michael J. Herrera, assistant director for the TTUHSC El Paso Office of Quality Improvement. “It says we are at a higher standard of quality and a higher standard of patient safety. We’re taking these extra steps for our patients.”

Established in 1975, TJC’s ambulatory health care accreditation program encourages high-quality patient care in all types of outpatient facilities. Today, the program serves 2,100 clinical providers, with more than 8,500 sites serving over 83 million patient visits annually.

TJC develops its accreditation standards by consulting with health care experts and providers, performance measurement experts, and patients. Scientific literature and expert consensus also are used to create the standards, which help organizations measure, assess and improve performance.

“The Joint Commission accreditation provides ambulatory care organizations with the processes contributing to improvements in a variety of areas, from the enhancement of staff education to the demonstration of leading practices within the ambulatory setting,” said Michael Kulczycki, M.B.A., CAE, executive director for The Joint Commission’s ambulatory health care accreditation program. “We commend Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso and its staff for achieving this pinnacle demonstrating a commitment to patient safety and quality.”

The hundreds of providers, residents and staff at the clinics are critical to maintaining the high standards required for TJC accreditation.

Irma Montes-Gomez, TTUHSC El Paso’s senior director for quality improvement/occupational health, added that TTUHSC El Paso conducts quarterly inspections of its clinics to maintain compliance with TJC standards and other regulatory agencies even while not under survey.

In addition to TTP El Paso’s reaccreditation this year, TJC recently conferred Comprehensive Stroke Center status for University Medical Center of El Paso. UMC is an affiliate and primary training site for TTUHSC El Paso’s medical and nursing students.

TTP El Paso’s TJC accreditation went into effect in April 2018 and will last for three years.

The Joint Commission provides accreditation to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso. As the clinical practice of TTUHSC El Paso, Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso has received accreditation under the legal parent name of TTUHSC El Paso.

TTUHSC El Paso Students to Honor Kharisma James During Day of Service

About 200 Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) medical students will participate in community service events Saturday, September  15, as part of the annual Corazón de Oro (Heart of Gold) community outreach event.

This year’s Corazón de Oro will honor Kharisma James, who graduated from the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing in May 2017. James passed away Aug. 13 after being struck by a car while picking up her children at Tippin Elementary School in El Paso.

Organized by TTUHSC El Paso’s Student Government Association (SGA), Corazón de Oro 2018 will include students from all three TTUHSC El Paso schools—the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine, the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS)—in an effort to give back to the community. The students will volunteer at 13 different sites.

SGA President Sajid Leelani said the event serves as a reminder to TTUHSC El Paso students of why they went into the medical field: to serve the community. He said students also asked to honor James, who often answered that call to service.

“Kharisma James was one of the founding officers of the SGA,” Leelani said. “It’s a day of service, and she was also very much about service. She served in the military. She was a nurse and she served in the SGA. So we are honored to remember her on this day.”

Sept. 15 will also mark the fourth anniversary of the RotaCare Clinic. The El Paso RotaCare clinic was opened by the Rotary Club of El Paso in September 2014 in the Lower Valley to provide free medical care for those in need. The clinic provides learning opportunities for TTUHSC El Paso’s medical students. As part of the anniversary celebration, students will host a health fair at the clinic Saturday morning.

 

List of sites – Students will volunteer at the following sites from 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 15:

YWCA, 201 E. Main St.: Students will assist with transitional living center activities.

Center Against Sexual and Family Violence, 580 Giles Road: Students will provide landscaping and facility maintenance.

PodMed TT Offers Podcast Listeners Latest Medical News

When medical professionals want to stay in the loop on breaking medical news, there is one podcast they tune into week after week: PodMed TT.

Hosted by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) President Richard Lange, M.D., M.B.A., and Johns Hopkins Medicine Director of Electronic News Media Elizabeth Tracey, M.S., PodMed TT covers trending research published in medical journals each week.

The long-running podcast series was originally produced by Johns Hopkins Medicine. Longtime fans were disheartened when Johns Hopkins discontinued the podcast in 2017. But thanks to support from loyal listeners, Dr. Lange and Tracey found a way to restore the program under the umbrella of TTUHSC El Paso.

“After 14 years, we weren’t ready to give it up,” Dr. Lange said. “The ability to take complex studies or complex scientific research and bring it to our listeners on a weekly basis is still very important to Elizabeth and me. So even though we changed it from Hopkins to TTUHSC El Paso, there was never any question that we were going to continue it.”

The podcasts pack as much information as possible into a short, 10-minute recording. Dr. Lange and Tracey highlight four studies each week, making sure to keep the topics fresh, Tracey said. The duo focuses on peer-reviewed research published in the world’s most respected and influential medical journals.

PodMed TT can be found on iTunes or other podcasting apps. Tracey also recaps the podcast on her weekly blog, which can be found at eptechview.ttuhsc.edu

TTUHSC El Paso Designated ‘Hispanic-Serving Institution’

The U.S. Department of Education has recognized Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) as a Title V Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), making it the second Health-Related Institution in the nation to receive this designation and the only one located on the U.S.-Mexico border.

To qualify as an HSI, an institution must have an undergraduate enrollment of at least 25 percent Hispanic students, among other criteria. As of 2017, 41 percent of TTUHSC El Paso’s student body identified as Hispanic. Recognition as an HSI opens doors to new sources of grant funding through the Department of Education and other federal agencies.

Based on 2015 data used to make the HSI designation, 72 percent of TTUHSC El Paso’s undergraduate nursing students identified as Hispanic, compared to a state average of less than 30 percent. Twenty-three percent of TTUHSC El Paso’s medical students identified as Hispanic, while the state average is about 15 percent.

With Hispanics driving population growth in the state and nation, this means TTUHSC El Paso is ahead of the game in terms of Hispanic representation.

“Recognition as a Hispanic-Serving Institution is a catalyst for growth,” said TTUHSC El Paso President Richard Lange, M.D., M.B.A. “As a university created in a Hispanic-majority community, we have an opportunity to advocate for the nation’s fastest-growing demographic, which is still vastly underrepresented in health care. Being an HSI will give us the funding we need to close that gap.”

The HSI designation was established under Titles III and V of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to increase higher education accessibility for Hispanics. Grants for HSIs, which include the National Science Foundation’s Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic-Serving Institutions program, also enable HSI-designated institutions to grow and refine their programs.

“At TTUHSC El Paso, we see our diversity as one of our major strengths,” said Vice President for Outreach and Community Engagement Jose Manuel de la Rosa, M.D., M.Sc.

“Our university values cultural, socioeconomic and intellectual diversity because it enriches our lives and our community as a whole, promoting access, equity and excellence. We strive to create an environment of mutual respect, appreciation and inclusion of differing values, beliefs and backgrounds throughout all our programming. It is a major achievement for us to be recognized by the Department of Education as one of the few Health-Related Institutions in the country to be designated a Hispanic-Serving Institution. It reflects success in meeting our mission of serving our El Paso and border communities.”

TTUHSC El Paso’s HSI status went into effect in April 2018. As of August 2018, three TTU System institutions have been designated as Hispanic-Serving Institutions: Texas Tech University, Angelo State University and now, TTUHSC El Paso.

All Smiles! Board of Regents Approves Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree for El Paso

During their Friday meeting,the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents approved a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree to be offered by the Woody L. Hunt School of Dental Medicine (WLHSDM) at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso).

Reaching this first milestone was made possible thanks to a generous gift from the Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation and a grant from the Paso del Norte Health Foundation. Richard C. Black, D.D.S., M.S., who was recently named dean of the WLHSDM, said there are now opportunities for all El Pasoans to help as the work continues.

“We’re going to be asking the community to support this school,” Black said. “Whatever they give will come back many times over with the kind of educational institution we’re building here. And as this health sciences center grows, it is going to continue to be a strong economic engine for West Texas.”

With the board’s approval of the dental school and degree, TTUHSC El Paso may now pursue state approval and external accreditation. First, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board will review the proposal, with a parallel review by TTUHSC El Paso’s institutional accreditor, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

Then, TTUHSC El Paso will pursue programmatic accreditation by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA), a process that lasts several years.

Pending accreditation, the WLHSDM will be the first to open in Texas in nearly 50 years, and the only dental school on the U.S.-Mexico border.

TTUHSC El Paso proposed the dental school in 2016 in response to a severe shortage of dentists in West Texas. The WLHSDM expects to enroll its first cohort of dental students in 2021.

Students in the Doctor of Dental Medicine program will benefit from state-of-the-art facilities and a hands-on curriculum much like the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine’s.

 

TTUHSC El Paso’s School of Medicine Reaccredited for 8-Year Term

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso’s (TTUHSC) medical education program has been granted full accreditation for eight years without citations by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME),

According to TTUHSC officials the announcement is the “best possible outcome of an application for continuing accreditation.”

The LCME is the U.S. Department of Education-recognized accrediting body for programs leading to the M.D. degree. There are three stages of accreditation: preliminary, provisional and full. The Paul L. Foster School of Medicine has been fully accredited since 2013.

Richard Brower, M.D., associate dean for medical education, said the LCME’s survey team was impressed by the school’s educational resources, committed faculty, and well-documented philosophy and theoretical basis for its curriculum.

Clinical integration is key to the PLFSOM’s curriculum. Unlike many traditional medical schools, PLFSOM students are immersed in diagnostic reasoning and clinical skill-building from the very start of their medical education. They learn the scientific foundations of medicine and related diagnostic skills based on common clinical presentations throughout the first and second years.

During this phase they also participate in community explorations and assessments, as well as a unique program of fully integrated Spanish language instruction.

“The LCME is very interested in the modernization of medical education,” Dr. Brower said. “And we were well-prepared to emphasize how the development and evolution of the PLFSOM curriculum has been deliberately based on settled principles of adult learning and educational psychology — this definitely worked in our favor.”

From the first day of medical school, PLFSOM students are taught to think like a doctor. Active learning is encouraged through simulation exercises in the school’s Center for Advanced Teaching and Assessment in Clinical Simulation. ATACS uses high-fidelity manikins that simulate everything from cardiac arrest to a vaginal birth.

Students also interact with “standardized patients,” real people trained to act out symptoms of medical conditions. These simulation activities help students learn to recognize conditions while developing their people skills and bedside manner.

In the final two years of medical school, students interact with actual patients in a wide range of clinical settings, and gain knowledge in ways that no textbook or simulation could ever teach. These experiences provide students with the background to lead the nation in medical care and prevention upon graduation.

With accreditation through 2026, PLFSOM leaders are looking at ways the school can continue to evolve.

“The great thing about the school’s definitively positive accreditation outcome is that we know we’re on an eight-year cycle, and this establishes an advantageous timeline for educational program enhancement and growth” Dr. Brower said.

With TTUHSC El Paso’s Medical Sciences Building II slated for completion in 2019, TTUHSC El Paso’s priority now will be to align its physical planning with its educational planning and enrollment goals.

The PLFSOM’s LCME accreditation is the third accreditation to be awarded to TTUHSC El Paso in 2018. Previously accredited under Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, TTUHSC El Paso was granted separate institutional accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges in June.

Also in June, the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing earned its 10-year programmatic accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

TTUHSC El Paso President Elected to Chair FDA Advisory Board

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso President Richard Lange, M.D., M.B.A., has been appointed as panel chair for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Circulatory Systems Devices Panel.

“I look forward to working with the FDA to accomplish those goals, to bring these devices to the public earlier and as quickly as possible, while still ensuring their safety,” Dr. Lange said.

Dr. Lange, who is also dean of the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine at TTUHSC El Paso, is a practicing cardiologist and has served on the FDA Circulatory Systems Devices Panel since 2010.

His term as chair will last four years, at a time when the FDA is going through important changes, including efforts to move drugs and devices through the approval process faster, especially for breakthrough drugs and devices.

The panel reviews and evaluates data about the safety and effectiveness of marketed and investigational medical devices for use in the circulatory and vascular systems.

They then make appropriate recommendations to the FDA commissioner.

TTUHSC El Paso Achieves Highest-Level Accreditation Designation

Officials with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) announced Monday that the college has been granted separate accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

In addition, the SACSCOC visiting team commended TTUHSC El Paso for its “culture of excellence.”

Independent accreditation by SACSCOC is a milestone in TTUHSC El Paso’s history. Formerly, TTUHSC El Paso was covered as an affiliate of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) in Lubbock, Texas.

“Receiving commendation from SACSCOC speaks not only to the rigor of our programs, caliber of our resources, and strength of our organization, but also to the excellence of our people,” said TTUHSC El Paso President Richard Lange, M.D., M.B.A. “We could not have done this without our tremendous students, faculty and staff.”

As the accrediting body for institutions of higher education across the Southern U.S., SACSCOC affirms that its accredited institutions have “a purpose appropriate to higher education and… resources, programs, and services sufficient to accomplish and sustain that purpose.” In addition to setting high standards for programs of higher education—which determines eligibility for Title IV, or federal financial aid funds—the commission also works to influence legislation that impacts the work of its member institutions.

“SACSCOC accreditation empowers TTUHSC El Paso to continue to focus its efforts on the Paso del Norte region, with essential health care preparation programs in medicine, nursing, graduate biomedical sciences and dental education. These programs and their graduates have an unparalleled and positive impact on the health and future of our region,” said Valerie Paton, Ph.D., TTUHSC El Paso senior vice provost.

As part of the SACSCOC accreditation process, institutions must prepare a self-assessment addressing more than 60 standards. These standards cover the institutional mission, governance and administration, institutional effectiveness, educational programs, student support services, and physical and financial resources, among others.

TTUHSC El Paso’s SACSCOC accreditation is effective June 14, 2018.

For more information on the accreditation and the honor, visit the SACSCOC website.

$2 Million Grant to Drive Cancer Research in El Paso

A $2 million grant from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) will allow Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) to create a new lab focusing on breast cancer, pushing forward breast cancer research in West Texas.

The lab will be headed by Shrikanth Gadad, Ph.D., a CPRIT Scholar recently recruited to TTUHSC El Paso. The research planned for the new lab perfectly complements the cancer research already happening at TTUHSC El Paso’s Center of Emphasis in Cancer, said Rajkumar Lakshmanaswamy, Ph.D., scientific director of the center and dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

Lakshmanaswamy’s research at the Center of Emphasis in Cancer has focused on the types of genes that make proteins. Gadad’s research will focus on long noncoding RNAs, which are genes that do not make proteins. This type of research is relatively new and increasingly important.

“The concept that Gadad is bringing in is really new, and it will help us understand the process of cancer growth and how it becomes aggressive,” Lakshmanaswamy said. “Using that, we can actually come up with some strategies to prevent the growth of these cancers.”

As a CPRIT Scholar, Gadad’s recruitment to El Paso as a first-time tenure-track faculty member is a first for the Texas Tech University System and for West Texas.

Gadad’s lab will serve as a crucial link between world-class research and cancer prevention services, complementing the work of Navkiran Shokar, M.D., M.P.H., M.A., vice chair for research and director for cancer prevention and control at TTUHSC El Paso.

Dr. Shokar is a CPRIT Prevention grant awardee who has established and expanded a breast cancer screening program for underserved West Texans.

El Paso Mayor Dee Margo, who also serves as Assistant Presiding Officer of the CPRIT Oversight Committee, said Gadad’s recruitment is important for El Paso and the Texas border region.

“Having CPRIT Scholar Shrikanth Gadad recruited to TTUHSC El Paso demonstrates our city’s status as a serious player in life-sciences research,” Margo said. “Cancer disproportionately affects Texans on the border, and this requires us to build a stronger, cancer-fighting ecosystem right here to study how best to address these disparities. I congratulate Dr. Gadad and the entire team at TTUHSC El Paso on this milestone in developing a world-class cancer research program.”

Students at TTUHSC El Paso’s Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences will be fully involved with the new lab and Gadad’s research.

“The research projects that will be conducted in Gadad’s lab will always involve the graduate students in the lab doing research,” Lakshmanaswamy said. “They will be doing one-year research stints in his lab, which is a requirement for their program. So, students will be constantly working in his lab, working on the project that has been funded by CPRIT.”

TTUHSC El Paso was able to recruit Gadad thanks to the CPRIT Scholars recruitment grant, designed to assist Texas universities in attracting outstanding scientists to their cancer research programs. Gadad was awarded $2 million through the fund’s First-Time, Tenure-Track Faculty Members program, which supports emerging investigators pursing their first faculty appointment.

Gadad said his long-term goal is to connect his research to the community, looking at how factors like stress and diet can affect a person’s chances of contracting cancer.

Since 2009, CPRIT has awarded more than $14.5 million to TTUHSC El Paso, mostly through cancer prevention grants, and more than $58 million to the Texas Tech University System. To date, CPRIT has awarded $1.95 billion in grants to Texas researchers, institutions and organizations and provides funding through its academic research, prevention and product development research programs.

Programs made possible with CPRIT funding have reached Texans from all 254 counties of the state, brought more than 150 distinguished researchers to Texas, advanced scientific and clinical knowledge and provide more than four million lifesaving education, training, prevention and early detection services to Texans.
