Program Description

Check out the exciting opportunities the University of Utah College of Pharmacy has to offer you:
https://www.youtube.com/embed/FV0B330sZ-o

The College of Pharmacy has well-equipped facilities to train students in all areas of the pharmaceutical sciences and professional practice.

The student-faculty ratio in all programs is small, so students receive concentrated, individual attention. The faculty, many of whom are recognized authorities in their areas of specialization, are committed to providing each student with a valuable educational experience. Since the college is located within the Health Sciences Center, pharmacy students can interact on a daily basis with students who are training in the other health professions and sciences. Student professional organizations are active on campus and provide students with the opportunity to participate in extracurricular service and social activities.

We invite you to visit https://pharmacy.utah.edu/ for further information.

Two (2) recommendation forms and letters of recommendation are required and must be submitted through the PharmCAS application.

These letters should come from a source who can speak to your professional demeanor, accountability and maturity and who you have had a relationship with over an extended period of time. This ability to provide insight into these principles is more important than the title or role of the letter writer. Letters may come from an employer or volunteer supervisor, professor, teaching assistant, or healthcare professional who you have associated with in a professional setting.
