Academics and Admissions

PharmD Students.

Since 1886, the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is one of the most established, innovative and progressive schools of pharmacy in the country, and a pioneer institution in drug development and the scientific theories supporting the physical and chemical properties of drugs.   

Our school and PharmD program are ranked No. 1 in New York State and ranked No. 22 in the United States by U.S. News & World Report—and we are the premier pharmacy school and PharmD program within the State University of New York system. Our pharmaceutical sciences programs are internationally renowned and taught by world leaders in the field resulting in a superior educational experience. All of this is available to our students at a public university tuition rate.

Our four year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) is a professional degree program where we prepare our students to be therapeutic drug managers, working as integrated members of the health-care team along with physicians, non-physician providers, and other allied health professionals.

The Pharmaceutical Sciences graduate programs provide instruction and research training in diverse aspects of drug action including drug discovery to various elements of drug evaluation.

The Pharmaceutical Sciences undergraduate program uniquely offers an interdisciplinary field of study which seeks to achieve better understanding and control of the factors influencing clinical response to drug therapy.

Our ASHP-accredited residencies offer outstanding training in a variety of practice sites, including an advanced academic medical center, primary care practices, innovative independent community pharmacies, and a managed care pharmacy setting.
