Since welcoming our inaugural class of professional doctoral Pharm.D. students in 2009, the UNE College of Pharmacy has pursued outstanding education, scholarship and service contributions in the pharmacy field.
Educating Pharmacists for Your Team
Our program's launch and subsequent success have been exciting developments for Maine. Prior to our arrival, the state's shortage of pharmacists had been well-documented and projected to worsen. Now, our College of Pharmacy is a leading educator of the next generation of pharmacists for Maine and New England. From pharmaceutical sciences to research, to pharmacy practice, we are encouraging excellence as we prepare the next generation of caring and committed leaders in the field.
Shortly after we graduated our first class of pharmacists in the Spring of 2013, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) granted full accreditation status to the UNE Doctor of Pharmacy Program.
Our students comprise a culturally diverse group from all over the U.S. and world. Maine and New England are well represented too, with almost 30% of our student body coming from Maine and 53% from New England.
We are dedicated to educating pharmacists who will thrive in interprofessional team-based patient care environments, and who are committed to serving their communities. Our talented faculty provide outstanding clinical services, and advance research in the pharmaceutical, biomedical, clinical and administrative sciences.
