Steeped in rich tradition and a strong spirit of community, the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy is one of the oldest and most highly esteemed institutions of its kind in the country.
Our students are challenged to develop a foundation of professionalism and dedication that is crucial to the role of the pharmacist. Among those skills and values which make up this foundation are a tireless dedication to the pursuit of professional excellence, a thirst for new knowledge and discovery, a sense of civic responsibility through engagement and outreach, and persistence in attaining the highest level of patient care.
What the College of Pharmacy offers goes beyond the classroom or the research lab. In the words of Dean Donald E. Letendre, “the College is a family.” It is this essential spirit of community, as well as the deep commitment on the part of the faculty and staff at the College, which provides our students with a sense of belonging, of caring, and of responsibility.
