Program Description

The OSU College of Pharmacy has been an integral part of Oregon State University for more than 100 years. World-renowned faculty promote full and healthy lives for all Oregonians.

The three foundational goals of the College of Pharmacy are to provide excellent professional education for our students and continuing education for practicing pharmacists; to foster outstanding and innovative research; and to contribute to public health by developing and promoting ways to provide medications safely and affordably.

At the core of this is the student body. Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students study for two years at Oregon State’s main campus in Corvallis, and move to Portland’s Oregon Health & Science University for their next and final two years. At OHSU, Pharm.D. students help foster collaboration within the health sciences profession. Students learn a multidisciplinary approach to studying pharmacy theory and practice. The goal of the College of Pharmacy is to produce pharmacists who are independent scientists dedicated to providing a better quality of life.
