Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the historically-rich Southwestern United States, the University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy is part of the State of New Mexico's largest health complex, UNM Health Sciences Center, and works collaboratively with UNM's School of Medicine, College of Nursing, UNM Hospitals, and UNM Cancer Center. Established in 1945, UNM College of Pharmacy is the oldest health professional educational program, and the only college of pharmacy in New Mexico. Unique programs within the College include the New Mexico Poison and Drug Information Center, UNM/NMSU Cooperative Pharmacy program, and the oldest training program in nuclear pharmacy in the United States.  The College co-sponsors Post Graduate Year 1 and 2 residencies in infectious disease, cardiovascular, and geriatric pharmacotherapy.

Currently, 434 Doctor of Pharmacy students are enrolled.  The student body is one of the most diverse in the nation with the third highest number of Hispanic and the second highest number of Native American pharmacy students among all colleges of pharmacy in the U.S. The College has more than 2,800 alumni from the professional program who practice in 48 states.  Nearly 2/3 of all pharmacists practicing in New Mexico are alumni of the College.  The College has 57 faculty and more than 250 preceptors throughout the state. 

New Mexico has unparalleled innovation and commitment to pharmacy.  Whether one measures this as “pharmacist clinicians”, a title only 3 states in the U.S. hold, or as the true dedication to the profession and our patients, the UNM College of Pharmacy is a trailblazer at the forefront of clinical advancements in the practice of pharmacy.  The College, as well as the State of New Mexico, is committed to improving patient care through drug discovery and enhancing healthcare outcomes; providing immunizations to all citizens (regardless of age); being one of the few states with prescriptive authority for tobacco cessation and emergency contraception; providing tuberculin skin testing; and being a leader in the development of new interprofessional models of care with particularly noteworthy activities in disease state management and medication therapy management.  

The mission of the UNM College of Pharmacy is to develop innovative leaders in pharmaceutical care and research who enhance the quality of life for the people of New Mexico.
