“Ability is what you’re capable of doing.
Motivation determines what you do.
Attitude determines how well you do it.” -- Lou Holtz
The Office of the Amarillo Regional Dean welcomes you to the School of Pharmacy. In
1996, the TTUHSC SOP opened its doors to its first class of Pharm.D. students. Since
that day, the School has continued to grow in every way. Just a year after starting
classes, the Graduate Pharmacy Education Residency program was implemented. In 1999,
the Graduate Program of Pharmaceutical Sciences welcomed its first class of PhD Graduate
Students to Amarillo. With the continual development of our curriculum, we have expanded
with campuses in Abilene, Dallas and Lubbock, but Amarillo remains the core campus.
The Amarillo campus has shown considerable growth in recent years. We currently have
>20 Science Faculty and >20 Pharmacy Practice Faculty here on site to administer curriculum
as well as clinical rotations. In the summer of 2009, several Science Faculty from
the SOP were relocated to the Amarillo Research Building, a state-of-the-art research
facility. This building is designed to give faculty greater opportunity to collaborate.
The most current addition to the Amarillo campus is the Pharmacy Academic Center where
students have the newest technological advantages incorporated into their learning
Our program has a group of people with a ‘can do’ attitude; because of this, we are
continually bettering our curriculum, programs, and campus.
