The KU School of Pharmacy is a world-class research institution and one of the country’s premier pharmacy schools. We train the pharmacists who serve the people of Kansas and researchers who help solve the world’s most pressing medical problems.
Our Pharm.D. Program offers a doctor of pharmacy degree for students who want to be pharmacy practitioners. Students enter the four-year program after completing two years of pre-pharmacy work. Approximately 150 students are accepted to the program each year, including 20 on the Wichita campus.
In addition to the Pharm.D. Program, the KU School of Pharmacy has four departments; Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmacology & Toxicology, and Pharmacy Practice. The departments of Pharmacology & Toxicology, Medicinal Chemistry, and Pharmaceutical Chemistry offer master’s and doctor of philosophy degrees. The Department of Pharmacy Practice offers a master’s degree and a residency program.
