The Department of Pharmacy Practice at TTUHSC School of Pharmacy includes clinical pharmacy, pharmacy practice, pharmacotherapy, pharmacy practice management, health informatics, public health and pharmacy administration. Department faculty members have developed numerous didactic courses; hundreds of experiential educational rotations and scores of patient care services, all while pursuing their own research interests. Pharmacy practice professors also offer one of the nation's largest post-graduate residency programs, supplying Texas Tech and other colleges with a new generation of clinician educators and practitioners. The Department is organized into seven divisions which link faculty with similar practice and research interests: Adult Medicine, Clinical Sciences and Research, Community Care, Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Primary Care and Pharmacy Practice Management. An extensive multi-campus experiential program uses intercampus teaching teams and a centrally coordinated post-Pharm.D. residency program that trains clinician/educators for future practice and academic careers is offered at each campus. Patient-care services contracts and intra-institutional pharmacy operations programs support a vibrant Pharmacy Income Plan and provide contemporary "real world" teaching laboratories. Basic and applied research within the Department focuses upon adult and pediatric pharmacology, geriatrics, infectious diseases and health care outcomes research and faculty research teams are developing post-doctoral fellowship programs.
