TTUHSC School of Pharmacy Ranks High for Pharmacy Programs
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy ranked 16th nationally in the 2016 Top Graduate Schools by SR Education Group and released on GraduatePrograms.com.
The ranking was calculated utilizing feedback from more than 51,000 actual graduates representing more than 1,700 schools. The data used in the school rankings were gathered in 2015-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and were combined with the internal recommended rate data, which is calculated based on tens of thousands of student reviews submitted to GraduatePrograms.com. NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. Its data is updated annually.
Overall, TTUHSC ranked first nationally in the same survey results released early this summer.
“These rankings are by the students and for the students,” TTUHSC President Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D., said. “One hundred percent of the information is from the students without university input. Other rankings may adjust the outcome because of university input. These rankings demonstrate the quality of education our students are receiving here. We are extremely proud of this.”
