Established in 1947, the College of Pharmacy was the first health professions college at the University of Arizona. Now regarded as one of the premier colleges of pharmacy in the nation, the college admits up to 140 students each year to the four-year doctor of pharmacy degree program, which prepares highly qualified pharmacists for the nation’s healthcare workforce. The college offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Additional training can be obtained through the college’s residency program and post-doctoral fellowship programs.
The College of Pharmacy also has administrative offices at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus, and plans academic programs there as the campus develops. Pharmacy students complete clinical learning experiences throughout the State of Arizona, with approximately 40 students doing rotations in the greater Phoenix area.
