Make an impact.
Since TTUHSC-SOP opened in 1996, one-third of the student population has come from within a 100-mile radius of Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Irving, and Plano. In 1999 the School expanded its innovative professional program into Dallas / Fort Worth and has been working to ease the critical shortage of pharmacists in the Metroplex ever since. Institutional affiliations with the North Texas Veterans Administration, Baylor University Medical Center, Children's Medical Center, Cook Children's Medical Center, Harris-Methodist Health System, Methodist Hospital Dallas, Parkland Memorial and Presbyterian Medical Center have provided critical resources and have helped the SOP and the Dallas / Fort Worth campus forge a national reputation for its active involvement in the complex health issues associated with clinical pharmacy and research.
Today, the DFW center has facilities located at both the North Texas Veterans Administration Medical Center and within the central Dallas Medical District. More than 80 third- and fourth-year pharmacy students and up to 20 postgraduate practice and specialty pharmacy residents receive their education and training in the Metroplex and are preparing to become future professional pharmacy leaders.
The SOP's Pediatric Pharmacology Research and Development Center is located at Children's Medical Center in Dallas and is a cooperative initiative of TTUHSC, CMCD and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
