Welcome to the College of Pharmacy at The University of Texas at Austin, one of the premier institutions of pharmaceutical education and research in the country.

Our college is a national leader in pharmacy education with a curriculum designed to prepare pharmacy graduates for lifelong learning and leadership capabilities as drug therapy managers in the nation's healthcare system. The pharmacist of the 21st century has significant responsibility for managing drug therapy, counseling patients on proper use of medications, and monitoring drug therapy outcomes, and our Doctor of Pharmacy program prepares future practitioners to meet these challenges.

We offer several outstanding graduate program tracks leading to research focused M.S. or Ph.D. degrees in pharmacy including an interinstitutional Ph.D. program in translational research.

An exceptional faculty teaches and promotes learning for students in both our Pharm.D. and graduate programs.  They bring cutting edge research and clinical expertise to the classroom and supervise student-learning experiences in both patient care and research.

The students of the College of Pharmacy at The University of Texas at Austin represent tomorrow's leaders. I invite you to browse through our web site and acquaint yourself with us. Once you do, I am confident that you will join me in the realization that being associated with The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy is being associated with excellence.
