Parents Of Accepted Students
Parents play a vital role in helping School of Pharmacy students succeed. The time your son or daughter spends at the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy comes with many challenges, but, more importantly, with the opportunity to succeed in the classroom, conduct research side-by-side with our more than 50 faculty members, tap into a vast alumni network across the country and in different pharmacy practice settings, create lifelong friendships and everlasting memories, and, of course, gain the knowledge and develop the skills to become a successful pharmacist ready to improve the health outcomes of patients and the community.
The School of Pharmacy believes in adding a personal touch to the education of every student. Our state-of-the-art facilities, academic research centers and growing list of academic partners help us give our students the personal attention they deserve and the opportunity to gain hands-on, real world experience. The numbers don't lie-the School of Pharmacy has consistently boasted a 99 percent job placement rate with average starting salaries over $110,000.
Finally, your student will join the Duquesne University family. You'll love to visit them on our beautiful, park-like campus isolated atop the Bluff just steps away from downtown Pittsburgh-truly the best of both worlds. Student safety is one of the university's top priorities, and the Duquesne University Department of Public Safety is dedicated solely to keeping Duquesne students safe. Finally, many different health and wellness programs ensure our motto-education for the mind, body and spirit-is reality, not just words.

"(Duquesne is) a very warm place. We love the activities that are offered. It's a great place for kids and families, together. Everybody's willing to help you while you're (at Duquesne). Everybody lends a hand, and it's just a great place."
– Lisa Abruzzo, mother of Lauren Abruzzo (Pharm.D.'16)
