Amarillo Campus

Dr. Michael Hooten

Welcome to the Amarillo campus and the Texas Panhandle. Located 120 miles north of Lubbock on Interstate 40, the Amarillo MSA has 200,000 people who live and work in Potter and Randall counties. We are proud to be part of the School of Allied Health Sciences and the TTUHSC team.

The School of Allied Health Sciences arrived in 1994 with the expansion of the Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy programs to this regional campus. There are ten faculty and staff at this location. Lecture classes are conducted in a distance education format and supported by the combined efforts of faculty in Amarillo, Lubbock, and Odessa. Clinical rehabilitation instructional labs are conducted onsite by Amarillo faculty in a new facility with over 10,000 square feet for use by the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences. We also have excellent working relationships and clinical affiliations with local healthcare agencies such as the Northwest Texas Healthcare System, Baptist St. Anthony’s Health System, and the Veteran Affairs Medical Center.

In March 2002, the School of Allied Health Sciences moved into a new 155,000 square foot facility that houses the academic and clinical programs for the School of Allied Health Sciences and the School of Medicine. The new building is adjacent to the School of Pharmacy and creates a true campus environment for our students. Located in the Harrington Regional Medical Center complex, students at TTUHSC Amarillo will find a rich and rewarding educational experience.

Our students work hard, but also take advantage of area activities. We enjoy the four seasons in the Panhandle. Amarillo is located on the original Route 66 with beautiful plains and canyons nearby. The city also has several parks and golf courses. The city has cultural events such as the Amarillo Symphony, the Amarillo Opera, The Amarillo Little Theatre, and Amarillo Dilla baseball. For weekend trips, Palo Duro canyon is 20 minutes away, Lake Meredith recreation area is one hour away, and skiing can be found in the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado.
