Founded in 1946, the School of Pharmacy had a first year enrollment of 144 students, attesting to the need for a school of pharmacy in the area.  The University of Houston College of Pharmacy combines the opportunities and experiences of the Texas Medical Center’s world-class healthcare community with resources of the University of Houston, Texas’ premier urban teaching and research university, to offer its students the best possible education. The College is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education and holds membership in the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy.
The College of Pharmacy has two campuses: the main University of Houston campus; and the Texas Medical Center campus, where students have access to the Texas Medical Center Library and collaborations with TMC institutions.
The College offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Pharmaceutical Sciences, a Master of Science (M.S.) and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Pharmacy Administration, a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) professional degree, a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Pharmacology or Pharmaceutics, a combined Pharm.D./Ph.D. in Pharmacology or Pharmaceutics, and a combined Pharm.D./M.S. The college also offers post-doctoral research fellowships, post-graduate clinical fellowships, and post-graduate residency affiliations in cooperation with institutions in the TMC and Greater Houston area.
The faculty, many of whom are recipients of patents and prestigious National Institutes of Health grants, is one of the most diverse in the nation. The College includes more than 50 full-time faculty members, 700-plus preceptors who provide training for students on pharmacy practice experiences, and many healthcare providers from the community who serve as volunteer faculty.
The College aspires to foster a commitment to lifelong learning and an environment where students develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills consistent with the high standards of their profession and/or scientific field.
