Program Description

Thank you for your interest in the University of New England’s School of Pharmacy! We offer a four-year Doctor of Pharmacy program, and we are located in the beautiful and picturesque city of Portland, Maine. http://www.une.edu/pharmacy

The Mission of the School of Pharmacy is to provide an exemplary, learner-centered pharmacy education and advance the practice of pharmacy through interprofessional collaboration, research, patient care, and service.

Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC): As a UNE PharmD student, you receive interprofessional training alongside future physicians, dentists, physical therapists, and other training health professionals, so you are able to lead in today’s collaborative health care field.

Cutting-Edge Simulation: UNE’s Sim Lab is an authentic hospital environment with state-of-the-art robotic patient simulators. At the University of New England, students have the opportunity to gain real-life clinical experience without the real-life risk.

Career Mentorship: Career mentorship is a big part of UNE's Pharm.D. program, and it shows in our career placement record: 97% of the class of 2017 were employed within 6 months of graduation!
