Welcome to the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy website! For more than a century, the College has been a leader in pharmacy education, practice, and research. In fact, the U.S. News and World Report magazine recently ranked the College as one of the top 20 pharmacy schools in the nation. We are fully accredited by the American Council for Pharmacy Education and are currently the only fully accredited College of Pharmacy in the state of Tennessee.

The College has successfully recruited and retained a very high quality faculty, that consists of nationally and internationally recognized educators, practitioners, pharmaceutical scientists and leaders in academic pharmacy. Student pharmacists receive an exceptional education because of the excellence of our faculty, staff, student services, curriculum and experiential learning programs. Our students are among the brightest in the nation. The percentage of graduates of the College who passed the national boards on the first attempt has been 98.5% or greater for the past 15 years. Our student pharmacists also possess a heart to serve humankind. One of the major strengths of the College is the national recognition of our student organizations and professional fraternities via awards for excellence. These accolades demonstrate not only the quality of our student body, but the College’s commitment to student professionalism and community service.

The College offers a curricular program designed to produce skilled, caring, and culturally competent pharmacists who are prepared to optimize medication use, ensure patient safety, and pursue advanced training in clinical specialties and pharmaceutical research. Perhaps the best gauge of our success resides in the achievements of graduates from our doctor of pharmacy, graduate, and post-doctoral residency programs who now serve as valued health care professionals, company and industry executives, community leaders, professors, and deans. Our 4338 alumni are located in 45 states and serve as highly skilled pharmacists in virtually all practice settings.

The University of Tennessee is dedicated to maintaining and advancing its position as a leader in pharmacy education. We continue to improve and nurture our programs in order to offer a variety of academic and clinical experiences that give our graduates a powerful edge in today's competitive health care market.

We want only the best and brightest students for the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy. Most importantly, we want student pharmacists who are ready to add their individual stamps of honesty, intelligence, humor, integrity, and hard work to the profession of pharmacy.

As an alumnus of the College, I am extremely proud of our students, faculty, alumni and The University of Tennessee. I hope you will take the time to learn more about The University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy and our commitment to our students, our community, and to our profession.
