DETAILED INFORMATION

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Pharmacy offers the degree of Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) with the expanded role of the pharmacist in mind. The effective delivery of essential primary health care services requires a greater responsibility for the pharmacist and a greater depth and breadth of education to support it.

TTUHSC School of Pharmacy’s program is student centered, focusing on problem-based educational strategies. The curriculum provides an integrated course context of pathophysiology, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry and therapeutics, built on a solid understanding of the biomedical sciences. It offers expanded practice management instruction and clinical experiences early and throughout the four-year professional program. Each of the curricular and instructional strategies has been precisely balanced to give the academic and clinical preparation to optimally succeed in any pharmaceutical profession.

· TTUHSC-SOP is nationally recognized for preparing pharmacists who have the therapeutic management skills to serve patients whose lives are affected by certain chronic diseases. In fact, our program provides more clinical contact hours than any other pharmacy program in the state and almost all other pharmacy programs in the country.

· TTUHSC-SOP is the only pharmacy school in the country that requires advanced professional practice rotations in both pediatrics and geriatrics. We are also one of only three pharmacy schools that require rural professional practice rotations.

· TTUHSC-SOP sciences faculty have spearheaded the development of four Centers for Research Excellence: the Center for Cancer Biology Research, the Vascular Drug Research Center, the Pediatric Pharmacology Research and Development Center and the Center for Immunotherapeutic Research and Development.

· TTUHSC-SOP practice faculty are nationally recognized for their collaborative practice partnerships with the hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities that serve our four campus communities. Our partnership with the Veteran’s Administration Hospital received the Crystal APPLE (Academic-Practice Partnerships for Learning Excellence) Award from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy for two consecutive years. It was the only partnership in the country to receive such recognition in consecutive years.

· TTUHSC-SOP is the only pharmacy school in the southwest U.S. and only one of two in the U.S. to offer a joint Pharm.D./M.B.A. degree with an HOM concentration. PharmD/MBA information can be found at http://www.ttuhsc.edu/pharmacy/mba/default.aspx . The PharmD/MBA Program requires a bachelor’s degree while the PharmD Program does not require a bachelor’s degree.
