Our Philosophy

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Pharmacy offers the Doctor of Pharmacy degree (Pharm.D.) with these expanded roles of the pharmacist in mind. The effective delivery of essential primary health care services requires the pharmacist to accept greater responsibility and expand the depth and breadth of their education to support future practice.

TTUHSC School of Pharmacy is uniquely positioned to offer you these expanding educational opportunities. The evolving role of the pharmacist in comprehensive medication therapy management is not always easy to understand, but our faculty are pharmacists/educators who recognize and embrace the new direction in pharmaceutical practice and education and they nurture its development. There are no traditions to overcome and no outdated curriculum content to hamper the educational needs of today's TTUHSC pharmacy student.

It is a goal of all TTUHSC School of Pharmacy educators to foster within students the desire to learn and the ability to discover. Our curriculum has been designed to encourage your intellectual development and to help you become a competent and skilled professional pharmacist. Our faculty will work with you to develop your conceptual competence, technical competence, integrated competence and career marketability.
