The School of Pharmacy is one of 16 schools of the University of Pittsburgh, all of which are located on the Pittsburgh campus within easy walking distance. Our University is among the very few that have six schools of the health sciences and that are located on the same campus as the School of Engineering and the Department of Chemistry. The environment is incredibly rich in opportunities for learning and for collaborating on research. Within the School of Pharmacy, the Pharmaceutical Sciences graduate program brings together highly motivated domestic and international students with diverse backgrounds who seek training in medicinal chemistry, biomedical pharmacology, and pharmaceutics, as well as clinical pharmaceutical sciences. The nearly 40 students in the program learn together through coursework, seminars, and participation in graduate student life through the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly and the student chapter of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists.
