Dear Residents:

On behalf of the faculty and administration of the School of Pharmacy, I would like to welcome you to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. We are looking forward to your time here with us, and are committed to providing an outstanding post-graduate residency training experience. This year we have 36 residents in a variety of PGY-1 practice and PGY-2 specialty programs on our Abilene, Amarillo, Dallas, and Lubbock campuses.

The Residency Programs at the TTUHSC School of Pharmacy are designed to produce well-rounded, independent pharmacists through experiences in clinical practice as well as teaching, basic clinical research, and professional activities. All of our residency programs are ASHP-accredited, and therefore emphasize the development of pharmacy practice skills to improve patient care, advance practice and improve patient care, develop leadership and management skills, enhance teaching skills, and the dissemination of knowledge.

The individual program directors and preceptors have designed your training programs to emphasize the strengths of their practice sites and campuses, working towards our common goals. To develop practice skills, you will be delegated clinical responsibilities under the mentorship of your preceptors with a goal of independent practice excellence. To develop teaching skills, you will be given the opportunity to provide didactic course lectures, facilitate small group discussions, supervise laboratory courses, and precept both introductory (IPPE) and advanced pharmacy practice (APPE) experiential training. To develop scholarship skills, you will have the opportunity develop your problem solving skills and ability to interpret, generate, and disseminate knowledge by conducting a major research or quality improvement project, developing a research manuscript, and presenting the findings at a state- wide professional meeting.

The year ahead of you will be very busy, but I am confident that you will greatly benefit from your residency program. The future of clinical practice depends on quality trained clinicians, and completion of a post-graduate training program is the next step in your journey towards advanced clinical practice.

I look forward to working with you over the upcoming residency year.
