Drake University (College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences)

Welcome to Drake University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Drake University’s commitment to pharmacy began when it affiliated with the first college of pharmacy in Iowa, the Iowa College of Pharmacy in 1887. The current College of Pharmacy originated in 1939 when Des Moines College of Pharmacy (previously Highland Park College) merged with Drake University. Throughout this tumultuous time two pharmacy faculty members, Elbert O. Kagy and J. Earle Galloway, demonstrated commitment and leadership. This 70-year-old commitment to students and the profession is kept alive in the students, faculty and staff of the College today. The College is committed to providing an outstanding curriculum enhanced with extracurricular program focused on developing entrepreneurial leaders with professional commitment to embrace change and advocate for the profession of pharmacy. This goal is achieved by providing a unique educational environment that combines outstanding liberal arts education with exemplary professional experience and training.

The faculty of the College are committed to active and experiential learning that requires students to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes in problem solving and decision making, management, policy formulation and professional governance, communicating and educating, life-long learning and professionalism. Direct instruction by faculty combined with peer and individual learning activities provide a rich instructional environment enhanced by direct and easy access to faculty outside of the classroom. Nationally recognized student organizations and professional fraternities provide avenues for professional development and leadership training so that upon graduation students are able to seek careers in a wide variety of practice venues.
