Program Description

Founded in 1893, the OU College of Pharmacy carries a rich tradition of highly-trained successful pharmacists. That tradition continues in today's modern world of pharmacy where we train and produce competent, compassionate pharmacists ready to compete in today's health care market and provide patient care in a variety of settings matching any career goals our graduates may have. The quality education we provide is evidenced by our top 31 rankings in the U.S. News & World Report of the best pharmacy schools in the U.S.

Our motto is a Prescription for Inspiration and in that spirit, we seek students who are well-rounded, display care for others and their communities, and are ready to step up as leaders and lead the way for pharmacy, inspiring those around them and being inspired as an individual to reach higher. Our students enjoy the advantage of being on a comprehensive academic health sciences center campus, the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, located in vibrant downtown Oklahoma City. OUHSC is a robust environment of hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, research facilities, an NCI-designated Cancer Center, and more. OUHSC is the largest and premier healthcare provider for the state of Oklahoma.
