The Clinics Meet the Classroom


For more than 14 years, Texas Tech Physicians has visited local school districts as an outreach effort to help support area teachers and students. Texas Tech Physicians leadership and administration visits with school teachers and administration each year to:

  • Thank them for their efforts in teaching our area youth
  • Offer resources to them as fellow educators (field trips, speakers, etc.)
  • Encourage teachers to seek their health care from one of our providers for themselves, their families, and any students/parents who might seek advice about an issue with which we can help

Texas Tech Physicians Administration

“It is an opportunity for us to get in front of approximately 1,000 individuals and speak to them about Texas Tech Physicians,” said Matt Driskill, MBA, FACMPE, Senior Clinical Department Administrator for the Department of Surgery.


These outreach efforts have been rewarded over the years. Texas Tech Physicians clinics have strong relationships with LISD, Cooper and Frenship school districts. Each year the clinics also rotate to the smaller school district and visit schools outside of Lubobck. This year clinical administration will visit Idalou school district.

Providing local teachers additional resources and support for each school year has been an invaluable aspect of Texas Tech Physicians’ outreach efforts in the community.

Texas Tech Physicians

Texas Tech Physicians is a physician group and part of the School of Medicine and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine.

Clinics are located in Amarillo, El Paso, Lubbock and the Permian Basin, encompassing 108 counties of Texas and New Mexico comprising 103,000 square miles with a population of 2.6 million people. Receiving care in a medical school setting is unique – many Texas Tech Physicians are also teachers. They must remain up-to-date in new treatments and diagnostics, not only to care for their patients, but also to pass on that knowledge to resident physicians, physicians studying in fellowships and medical students.
