WELCOME TO DALLAS-FORT WORTH
From a handful of third- and fourth-year doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) students in 1999
to approximately 150 future pharmacy practitioners in 2014, the clinical practice
and research programs for the TTUHSC School of Pharmacy have flourished in the Dallas-Fort
Worth (DFW) Metroplex.
When the SOP initiated its Dallas-based clinical training programs, our facilities
were based at the Baylor University Medical Center. Motivated by program expansion
and a unique partnership forged with the local Veterans Affairs Hospital, we relocated
our teaching and training facilities to the VA North Texas Medical Center campus in
2002. Spurred by a subsequent collaboration with the University of Texas Southwestern
Medical Center, we expanded to a second DFW location in 2008.
This move into the Southwest Professional Building gave our students and faculty immediate
access to the heart of the Dallas Medical District and several of our important DFW
partners like UTSW, Children’s Medical Center and Parkland Health and Hospital System.
The pharmacology laboratory was moved to our SW Campus facilities in 2011 to enhance
our research and training programs. These new and expanded laboratory facilities allowed
us to form alliances with Baylor’s Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center, UTSW’s Harold
C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center and other leading cancer researchers in the
MAKING AN IMPACT
Historically, about half of our PharmD students have come from the DFW area, and because
many have returned to their hometown roots upon graduation, the number of TTUHSC-trained
registered pharmacists in the Metroplex continues to blossom.
In addition, our students and faculty have become active members of the community
by participating in local charitable events and projects, organizing regional health
fairs and delivering pharmaceutical care that benefits the citizens of North Texas.
Today, the SOP continues to partner with the major healthcare institutions and pharmacies
in the Metroplex. Our students fulfill their experiential requirements in local retail
pharmacy settings, through the school’s time-tested partnerships and through our more
recent affiliations with some of DFW’s largest healthcare providers, including Cook
Children’s Medical Center, Harris-Methodist Hospital and Presbyterian Hospital.
