UTEP/UT Austin Cooperative Pharmacy Program
Welcome! And thanks for your interest in pursuing pharmacy education at The University of Texas at El Paso! These are exciting times for the UTEP Pharmacy program, as we move from a Cooperative Program with The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) to a standalone School of Pharmacy at UTEP. By opening a new School of Pharmacy, UTEP is in a position to make a significant contribution to meet the health needs and challenges facing the Paso del Norte region.
The Cooperative Pharmacy Program with UT Austin has proven fruitful in increasing the number of pharmacists in the region and providing continuing education for local pharmacists. While the Program served us well in many ways, it was unable to meet the increasing demands for health care providers, specifically pharmacists, in this region. Through the new School of Pharmacy, we hope to be able to help close that gap between patients and their providers.
UTEP Pharmacy will continue to meet its obligation to Cooperative pharmacy students who are already enrolled, but will no longer be accepting any new students into this program. The last class of the UTEP/UT Austin Cooperative Pharmacy Program will graduate in the Spring of 2019. We look forward to a continued strong and productive relationship with the UT Austin College of Pharmacy.
