School of Pharmacy


The UTEP School of Pharmacy (SOP) is currently in the transition of moving from a cooperative pharmacy program with The University of Texas at Austin to a standalone school of pharmacy at The University of Texas at El Paso.

It is an exciting time for us and we encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program, our residency programs, and the services we provide to students interested in pharmacy (pre-pharmacy).   

Continue to check in with us to learn more about our transition and please contact us if you have any questions. Please consider giving to the UTEP SOP to help us fulfill our mission of bridging borders for access and excellence: transforming pharmacy education, patient care, community service, research and leadership to benefit a 21st century demographic.”
