The College of Pharmacy, the newest addition to the Rosalind Franklin University family, opened in early 2009. On June 26, 2012 the Doctor of Pharmacy program achieved Candidate Status from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). As a new program, we are progressing through the stages of accreditation. The College will receive its next accreditation site visit from the ACPE in the spring of 2015 and will be considered for full accreditation upon graduating the inaugural class; learn more about the accreditation process.
The College desires to enroll students who present evidence of strong preparation for a career in pharmacy paired with bold leadership and initiative. The College of Pharmacy at Rosalind Franklin University has innovative technology readily available to use from the classroom to the laboratory. Our students explore the scope of practice through a wide variety of introductory and advance practice experiences. Opportunities range from traditional community and hospital clinical rotations to experiences in public health, academia, and the pharmaceutical industry. These will all prepare our students for careers in multiple settings.
College of Pharmacy Mission:
