University of New England School of Pharmacy

The University of New England is a health-sciences university grounded in the liberal arts. In addition to the 27 healthcare programs, the full range of liberal arts classes and majors makes UNE a unique educational environment. Since 2009, outstanding education, scholarship, and service contributions have been exemplified by the UNE School of Pharmacy faculty, professional staff, and students.

Recently granted full accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), UNE’s School of Pharmacy is a leading educator of the next generation of pharmacists. As a student in the program, you master a variety of topics related to medication use including disease management, pharmacology, pharmacogenomics, pharmacoeconomics, and pharmacy informatics.

Our curriculum is dedicated to helping you achieve outcomes suited for your individual interests and career aspirations. The Doctor of Pharmacy program combines interdisciplinary education with experiential practice and results in a pharmacist prepared for the rigors of an interprofessional health management team.

In addition, the School's Office of Continuing Education has been granted provider status from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). This makes UNE the first accredited provider of continuing pharmacy education in Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire.

The School has successfully recruited and retained a very talented group of faculty members who are providing outstanding pharmacy clinical services and advancing research in the pharmaceutical, biomedical, clinical, and administrative sciences.

The class sizes are on the smaller side, so the professors know your name. The learning experience is much better than on a larger campus.

The thought of being a pharmacist can be intimidating, but everyone here works together — it’s not every man or woman for themselves, it's we're in this together.

I completed the pre-pharmacy program at UNE as the president of my class. Now studying at the graduate level, I’m excited to be alongside my Nor’easter peers at an institution that values nontraditional paths like mine.

I definitely feel like the Pre-Pharmacy classes that I took prepared me for the classes that I'm in now. There are perfect parallels, it’s set up just for pharmacy students.

I felt at home at UNE, and everybody I met at my interview was so nice and approachable, and it felt genuine — something you don't find everywhere.

Going to pharmacy school has allowed me to explore the scientific field without narrowing my potential career opportunities.

By having flexibility and support, I was able to leverage these non-traditional curriculum opportunities to pursue a career in industry pharmacy as a fellow and stood out from the crowd of other Pharm.D. fellow applicants that did not have these valuable and rewarding experiences.

Hannaford Pharmacy

A lot has changed since 1883 — the year Arthur Hannaford began selling high-quality fruits and vegetables from a produce cart on the Portland, Maine, waterfront. That one-horse cart became Hannaford Supermarkets, a leading grocer serving customers throughout Northern New England and New York.

Hannaford is committed to wellness with nutrition classes, has registered dieticians on staff and pharmacy services including immunizations and medication therapy management. Your local Hannaford Pharmacy is a full-service pharmacy with the convenience of a full-shop supermarket.

Based in Scarborough, Maine, Hannaford Supermarkets operates 180 stores in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Massachusettes. Within those stores, Hannaford operates 153 pharmacies that offer a variety of health services, including immunizations, medication therapy management, and prescription-reminder services.
