About Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
Since its inception, TTUHSC-SOP has embraced new classroom technologies to advance its curriculum and prepare students for the ever-increasing opportunities that exist in pharmacy today. It was the first program in the nation to require all of its students to have laptop computers and to deliver materials and email services in support of coursework. The SOP also requires its students to complete more clinical training hours than any other pharmacy program in the country.
In November 2009, the SOP expanded the Amarillo campus by opening its Pharmacy Academic Center. The 23,000 square-foot facility provides state-of-the-art classrooms and clinical simulation facilities and gives the SOP the ability to increase its Amarillo class sizes from 90 students in 2009-2010 to 115 students beginning in 2010-2011.
The TTUHSC campus in Amarillo also includes a new 48,000 square-foot biological sciences research building and the SOP presently occupies approximately 80 percent of the facility's assigned laboratory and office space. SOP researchers collaborate with TTUHSC School of Medicine investigators whose research is focused upon cancer biology and therapeutic drug delivery.
