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. Since its founding in 1821 as the first college of pharmacy in North America, names like McNeil, Lilly, Wyeth—founders of the top pharmaceutical companies in the world—and many others have 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.
