Virginia Commonwealth University (School of Pharmacy)




Rated among the nation's top professional graduate programs, the VCU School of Pharmacy is at the scientific vanguard in Pharmacy, Pharmaceutics, and Medicinal Chemistry education and research.
The School of pharmacy was established in 1898, and has a long history of pioneering changes in the field of Pharmacy. Entirely the past century Pharmacy practice has changed drastically, from the art and science of combine and dispensing medicine to a valuable information resource in drug management for patients and health care professionals.
The development of a comprehensive drug evaluation research program in 1987 and the Pharm.D./Ph.D. program in 1982 has also attracted national attention. A new research facility opened its doors in 1984. Since then extramural funding for research and development has topped $3 million annually.
The professional degree program from the School is the Doctor of Pharmacy Program (Pharm.D.) which leads to a career as a pharmacist. Further academic options can be sought through the School's graduate program in pharmaceutical sciences. The graduate program leads to an M.S., a Ph.D., and postdoctoral study. Areas of concentration include Pharmacy, Pharmaceutics and Medicinal Chemistry. In addition, the School of Pharmacy provides unique continuing education opportunities.
The Mission of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Pharmacy is to educate, create knowledge, and provide service for our students, the pharmacy profession, and the public.
We will accomplish this by:
Creating a culture that fosters excellence in pharmacy education, research and service;
Creating innovative curricula and experiences that produce pharmacists;
Educating scientists to become innovators and leaders within their disciplines;
Recruiting and retaining quality faculty, staff and students;
Establishing partnerships, collaborations and strategic alliances to advance.
Ensuring adequate resources to create a successful environment.
