The Office of Experiential Programs places TTUHSC pharmacy students in actual practice settings in or near each of the School of Pharmacy’s campus communities in Amarillo, Abilene, Lubbock and Dallas/Fort Worth. The technology-driven program provides these future practitioners with opportunities to interact with real patients and other health care professionals and has earned high marks from both students and preceptors.
Each year, the Office of Experiential Programs and the School of Pharmacy’s third- and fourth-year students honor one faculty member and one adjunct faculty member from each campus community with a Preceptor of the Year Award. For the 2015-2016 academic year, Faculty Preceptor of the Year Award honorees include Jaime McCarrell, Pharm.D. (Amarillo); José Vega, Pharm.D. (Abilene); Gary Jean, Pharm.D. (Dallas/Fort Worth); and Craig Cox, Pharm.D. (Lubbock).
The 2015-2016 Adjunct Faculty Preceptors of the Year include Luke Barnett, Pharm.D., Baptist St. Anthony (Amarillo); Amy Perry, R.Ph., Hendrick Medical Center (Abilene); Collin Verheyden, Pharm.D., Parallon Supply Chains, (Dallas/Fort Worth); and Nikki Ogle, Pharm.D., University Medical Center-Southwest Cancer Center (Lubbock).
