Our PharmD program integrates the latest technologies throughout the professional coursework. You will enjoy state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories, "smart" classrooms, and centers for research.

You'll work side-by-side with internationally renowned faculty. It's all part of an environment based on community and teamwork to create an atmosphere of active collaboration, professional development and mentorship.

The University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (UB SPPS) has implemented a renewed curricular blueprint for PharmD students entering the program, effective Fall 2023.

Building on the strong foundation of our legacy curriculum, our renewed curriculum will act as a blueprint for our incoming PharmD students, providing them with a more integrated learning experience and a comprehensive path for student success, guiding them academically, professionally and personally.
