Support The School Of Pharmacy

The profession of pharmacy has always played a vital role in the health care community. As science advances and Americans live longer, the need for pharmacists has never been greater. Since 1925, Duquesne University has been a leader in pharmacy education. Its School of Pharmacy remains at the forefront of a changing field.

Duquesne established the second post-baccalaureate Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program in the United States in 1968, pioneered the six-year entry level Pharm.D. program as the industry standard in 1994, and initiated the nation's first weekend pathway Pharm.D. program to help adults change careers and address the growing nationwide shortage of pharmacists in 2005.

The Duquesne University School of Pharmacy faculty ranks fourth among private pharmacy schools for National Institutes of Health funded research grants. Graduate M.S./Ph.D. program enrollment at Duquesne has more than doubled in the past 10 years. Graduates of the highly-selective Pharm.D. program have achieved nearly 100 percent placement in jobs or advanced education for more than a decade.

We have a proud legacy – to prepare today's student pharmacists and pharmaceutical sciences graduate students to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Faculty, staff, preceptors and academic partners know what it takes to make a difference in the educational experience of our students and share this mission. Join us in advancing our legacy through your financial support.
