Washington State University’s College of Pharmacy is a leader in protecting, promoting, and improving human health through cutting edge research and advancing clinical pharmacy practice as part of the health care team. Its innovative programs prepare the pharmacists and researchers of the future to meet the evolving health care needs of today and tomorrow.

The College of Pharmacy was founded in 1891 and has been accredited since 1912. Its main degree programs include the doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) and doctorate in pharmaceutical sciences (Ph.D.). As of 2013, the college is ranked 38th out of about 130 pharmacy schools in the U.S. by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). The ACPE-accredited Pharm.D. program prepares pharmacists to provide patient care in multiple health care settings. The Pharm.D. program is offered at the WSU Health Sciences campus in Spokane, and at an extension location in Yakima on the Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences campus. The program emphasizes patient-centered care, drug therapy and disease state management, and interprofessional health team collaboration. The Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences prepares pharmaceutical researchers dedicated to the promotion of human health and wellness to excel in a career path of their choice such as academia, industry, health care, or private institutions.

The College’s mission is to advance human health through excellence in collaborative research, scholarship, and clinical education, and to develop outstanding healthcare professionals and scientists.
