As a new school year begins, officials with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso announced a Welcome Back Lunch for faculty, students and staff and events for the school’s 10th anniversary.
Along with the celebration of a new school year, the Welcome Back Lunch will also kick off the 10-year anniversary of the Foster School of Medicine, which opened its doors to an inaugural class of 40 students in 2009.
The luncheon’s first 400 attendees will receive commemorative 10-year anniversary T-shirts.
The 10-year anniversary’s official celebration, a “Red Tie Affair For A White Coat Occasion,” will be held on Friday, Feb. 28, 2020. All event proceeds will support scholarships awarded to medical students attending the Foster School of Medicine.
A major sponsor for the celebration will be announced at the Welcome Back Lunch, along with the announcement of TTUHSC El Paso community partners and store and restaurant discount locations for TTUHSC El Paso students and employees.

Alumni of the Foster School of Medicine can now share memories and experiences during their time as medical students on the 10-year anniversary’s website.
Students from the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences will begin classes on Monday, August 26.
Students from the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine returned to classes earlier this summer.
