The College of Pharmacy is located on the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) campus in Omaha, NE. The College of Pharmacy opened the UNMC Center for Drug Discovery and Lozier Center for Pharmacy Sciences & Education in 2016, a $35 million building completely funded by private support. The new Center offers the most up-to-date technologies to enhance the learning environment.
UNMC is dedicated to educating the next century of health care professionals with the latest in teaching tools, technology and facilities. More than 3,600 students attend UNMC, seeking degrees in Allied Health professions, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Graduate Studies. Students at UNMC learn in an environment that embraces the innovation of tomorrow while maintaining low student-to-faculty ratios and small-group learning.
Because of UNMC’s robust research enterprise, students learn from scientists and clinicians who are at the leading edge of discovery. Many of our students also can engage in the rich cultures of Omaha, working in student-run clinics that assist underserved populations in the city.
