The University of Minnesota’s College of Pharmacy was ranked third in the nation among pharmacy programs by U.S. News and World Report—a move up from fourth place last year. The rankings are based on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to pharmacy college and school leaders across the country.
The College of Pharmacy, the only one in Minnesota, offers a Pharm.D. program on both the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses. It offers four graduate programs and several postdoctoral fellowships, enrolling about 640 doctor of pharmacy students in the four-year program and 103 graduate students.
Faculty researchers in the college are known for their expertise in drug design, delivery, therapy, and policy.
