About the Office
The School of Pharmacy is based in Amarillo, with regional campuses in Dallas/Fort Worth, El Paso, and Lubbock.
The TTUHSC School of Pharmacy was established in 1993 to offer the degree of Doctor
of Pharmacy (Pharm.D). The School began accepting applications and enrolled its first
class of 63 students in the fall of 1996. The founding class graduated in May, 2000.
The SOP has conferred 568 Pharm.D. degrees through May 2007. In addition to the traditional
Pharm.D. program, the School also provides a Ph.D. program in the basic pharmaceutical
sciences and a Graduate Pharmacy Education Program (residency program). Through the
residency program, pharmacists gain advance practice skills leading to specialization
beyond the entry professional degree.
The School of Pharmacy also supports a significant research program with approximately
14,000 square feet of laboratory space. Current efforts include research targeted
at drug delivery, drug metabolism, drug formulation, blood brain barrier, cancer,
cardiovascular pharmacology, immunology, infectious disease, molecular biology, pharmaceutics,
pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, and pharmacoeconomics.
