DETAILED INFORMATION

The UAMS COP mission is to improve the health of culturally diverse populations by educating pharmacy leaders to address community health needs, advancing scientific discovery to produce innovations in health care, and fostering progressive pharmacy practice through service to the profession. The UAMS College of Pharmacy was established at the beginning of the 1951-52 academic year in Little Rock on the UAMS campus. The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences includes the Colleges of Health Professions, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, and a graduate school. The main campus is comprised of the University Hospital and Clinics, the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy, the Jones Eye Institute, the Jackson T. Stephens Spine and Neurosciences Institute, the Reynolds Institute of Aging, and Psychiatric Research Institute. UAMS has opened a satellite campus for a portion of the third and fourth year professional year classes in northwest Arkansas (Fayetteville).
The Dean’s office is located in the Education II building along with faculty laboratories and offices. The Education II and College of Public Health buildings house the medical sciences library, large lecture halls, computer learning facilities, multidisciplinary student laboratories, Center for Clinical Skills Education, research laboratories, and faculty offices. In addition, College faculty members have laboratories and offices in both the Biomedical I, Biomedical II and College of Public Health buildings. These areas are strategically located to facilitate the College’s mission. Through the multiple purpose classrooms and laboratories, the students in the College of Pharmacy enjoy enviable advantages for broadening his/her understanding of the profession of pharmacy and its relationship to other health care professions and the maintenance of public health. Student life consists of participation in campus activities, professional fraternities, and a variety of other organizations. The college website may be accessed at https://pharmcollege.uams.edu/.
The curriculum is designed to prepare students to enter the practice of pharmacy after completing licensure requirements. The didactic and experiential portions of the curriculum are integrated in such a way as to develop fundamental knowledge while being introduced to the practice through strategically placed introductory pharmacy practice experiences. The acquisition and application of knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become a pharmacist occurs throughout the curriculum.
