About the School of Pharmacy
Founded in 1925 under Dean Hugh C. Muldoon, nearly 100 percent of Duquesne student pharmacists have gained immediate placement in employment and advanced studies for more than two decades and have been given preferred status by pharmacy employers.
The School's facilities now include Bayer Learning Hall (including a state-of-the-art facilities that promote active learning), an entire floor of Richard King Mellon Hall, and a modern pharmaceutical technology and management laboratory.
What Can a Pharmacist Do?
Pharmacists work in numerous healthcare environments such as:

Pharmacists can find the perfect field, location, and hours to fit a desired lifestyle. There is always a need for pharmacists at all times and entrepreneurship opportunities are almost endless.
