SCHOOL OF PHARMACY

Be part of an advanced and growing field, and improve the well-being of the El Paso region, the nation, and beyond! A career in Pharmacy means helping people get the best results from their medication and assisting them to lead full, healthy lives.

The School of Pharmacy is committed to developing pharmacists with IDEAL (Innovation, Diversity, Engagement, Access, and Leadership) attributes who will become leaders in the field and in their community. We do this by providing our students with unique learning opportunities, such as study away, capstone research, and service learning.
