Unrivaled Clinical Training

Clinical training is a key component to modern pharmacy education. At TTUHSC School of Pharmacy clinical training is the corner stone of our program. The training time our students spend in the clinical setting caring for actual patients differentiates our program from all others. From the moment our students arrive on campus they are afforded a plethora of hands-on learning and training opportunities.
