The University of Texas at Austin is recognized as one of the top programs of pharmacy education in the country. We are excited that you are considering our program. The College of Pharmacy is located on the main campus about a block north of the Main Building and Tower.
Each fall, approximately 125 new students are admitted, but the application process begins almost a year earlier.
Attaining a quality pharmacy education does not come without cost, so the College of Pharmacy has worked in partnership with generous donors to establish a wealth of scholarship opportunities.
Approximately 85% of our students received some form of financial assistance from UT Austin’s Student Financial Services and/or the College of Pharmacy.
The Pharmacy Doctorate (Pharm.D.) is the entry-level professional degree program.
The curriculum is designed to prepare future practitioners to provide patient-oriented pharmaceutical care in contemporary settings including community practice, hospital environments and long-term care facilities.
The professional curriculum takes an integrated approach to drug therapy management which emphasizes a problem-based approach to disease management as the core of the didactic and laboratory program of study.
The capstone of the Pharm.D. program is a series of seven, six-week rotations, which provide on-site experience supervised by practitioner faculty.
The graduate studies program (M.S., Pharm.D./Ph.D, and Ph.D.) offers degree opportunities in the pharmaceutical sciences and a multi-institutional joint degree program in translational science.
The Pharmaceutical Sciences graduate program offers specialized training in five different tracks: Health Outcomes & Pharmacy Practice, Chemical Biology and Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Pharmacotherapy.
The Translational Science graduate program is designed to provide training in the area of translational research toward the goal of applying basic biomedical scientific discoveries into strategies that will improve healthcare delivery, patient outcomes, and community health.
