Students enjoy challenging academics, close mentorship from a faculty of top scientists and practitioners, and a dynamic clinical experience program. The school ranks among the top 15% of pharmacy schools in NIH research funding, giving students the opportunity to study in an exciting atmosphere of discovery and innovation.

The Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy is one of eight schools making up the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) unit.

New Jersey is home to leading teaching hospitals and clinical care centers as well as 15 of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, making the state a great place to launch a pharmacy career.

Few schools can match the breadth and diversity of our clinical experience program Our students learn to be independent thinkers, creative problem solvers, and compassionate care givers. Through rigorous coursework and patient-centered professional practice, students become highly knowledgeable about all aspects of drug therapy and highly effective in counseling patients and collaborating with health care professionals. Our graduates are well prepared for professional pharmacy practice in a variety of settings-the community, medical institutions, health care facilities, and the pharmaceutical industry, among others-as well as graduate or professional study.
