Texas A&M University-Kingsville (Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy)

THE TEXAS A&M HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy, located on the Texas A&M University-Kingsville campus, was created in response to the shortage of pharmacists in the border region. According to a report completed by the Texas Department of Health Education and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Texas-Mexico border region has a population-to-pharmacist ratio of 1,700 to 1, which is 32 percent higher than the statewide ratio. The report concludes that the border's rapid population growth, and difficulty in recruiting and retaining pharmacists, and a decrease in the number of pharmacy graduates in Texas over the last several years have contributed to the pharmacist shortage in the border region.

The Mission of the Texas A&M Health Science College of Pharmacy is to provide a comprehensive pharmacy education in a stimulating, learning-intensive, student-centered environment to prepare students for the practice of pharmacy as competent, caring, ethical professionals dedicated to the provision of optimal pharmaceutical care through a balanced program of education, research, service, and patient care.
