The University of Iowa’s College of Pharmacy has a superb national reputation. Its PharmD program is ranked 17th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
The college is the fourth-oldest pharmacy college at a state-supported university and has been educating pharmacists since 1885. In that time, it has developed nationally and internationally recognized research programs in pharmaceutics, medicinal and natural products chemistry, clinical pharmaceutical sciences, pharmaceutical socioeconomics, and pharmacy practice. Its faculty is recognized worldwide.
The PharmD program is widely known for its personalized atmosphere and emphasis on individual attention – a result of its low student-to-faculty ratio – and its location on a world-class health sciences campus. It is adjacent to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, one of the nation’s largest public university teaching hospitals.
