The College of Pharmacy, established in 1947, prepares students to enter into the practice of pharmacy and to function as professionals and informed citizens in a changing health care system and to assume important roles as drug information specialists and primary care providers.
Upon graduation, the new professional utilizes a foundation of skills in administrative, biological, clinical, and pharmaceutical sciences to take an active role in contemporary pharmacy practice--shaping policies and the future directions of the profession. Career options in pharmacy are virtually unlimited. From community to hospital practice, from home care to nuclear pharmacy, from clinical practice to basic science research in the pharmaceutical industry, pharmacists participate in areas that provide patient care and unravel the mysteries of human health. Employment opportunities are also available in academia. Pharmacists educate health care professionals, undergraduate and graduate students, and patients in institutions and communities throughout the world.
Pharmacists are responsible for supervising the drug distribution process, selecting appropriate drug therapies, determining drug dosages and routes of administration, and monitoring therapeutic outcomes. Working with other health care providers--physicians, nurses, veterinarians, and dentists--pharmacists complement the health care system by providing pharmaceutical care.
Students at the College of Pharmacy have at their disposal virtually every resource and opportunity they need to acquire a first-class education in pharmacy.
In the college's facility on the University of Houston campus, an Education Technology Center provides advanced hardware and specialized software for class work and research needs.
In the college's second facility in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center, the students have the opportunity to train with physicians, medical students and members of our clinical faculty.
In addition to faculty/staff offices, research laboratories, computer center, and classrooms, the building houses the Contemporary Pharmacy Practice Laboratory (CPPL). In the CPPL, students learn techniques in pharmaceutical care by role-playing situations they would experience as pharmacists.
The Sterile Products Laboratory teaches students the latest aseptic methods of drug formulation and preparation, especially for use in hospitals and home care.
The College of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education and holds membership in the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy.
