Take Your Place Among Pharmacy’s Pioneers

Home to programs in pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences, and pharmacology & toxicology, Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (PCP) is where modern pharmacy started: McNeil, Lilly, Wyeth, and many others launched their careers here. We continue that tradition of excellence with our hands-on approach, offering future pharmacists clinical experience—practically from day one.

Our pharmacy graduates play important roles in managed care organizations, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and regulatory agencies. And many of our pharmaceutical sciences and pharmacology & toxicology students continue their educations through our MS and PhD programs in pharmacology/toxicology, pharmaceutics, and pharmacy administration as well as MBA, biomedical writing and MPH programs in USciences’ Mayes College.
