Pharmacy
Make a difference in the health of another.

Launch your pharmacy career at one of the most selective-- and best-- pharmacy schools in the nation. Foremost in New Jersey, the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers attracts students from around the world. Why? Rutgers pharmacy students are part of a world-renowned university at the epicenter of the pharmaceutical industry. New Jersey has one of the nation’s top 5 biotechnology clusters and hosts 15 of the world's 25 largest pharmaceutical companies. 

You can join a common-purpose community working toward a six-year Pharm. D., the terminal degree in the field. Coursework is challenging. Training is laboratory based. And the faculty is internationally recognized for research and expertise. The program’s highlight: a full year of professional placements in pharmacies, hospitals, research labs and corporate settings.
