Student life in the school of pharmacy

The UNE School of Pharmacy strives to create new knowledge in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and clinical sciences, while developing innovative approaches to teaching and learning. We actively seek to partner with professional organizations, universities, providers and health care networks to create learning opportunities for our students that also benefit the larger community.   

The commitment to service that we foster within our students contributes to the growth of life-long learning skills and a sense of shared social responsibility. We believe both attributes are essential to the development of exceptional pharmacists.


As a student in the School of Pharmacy, you'll have many opportunities to engage in research and scholarship. Many of these endeavors allow you to obtain academic credit through successful completion of elective Independent Study or Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience coursework. Faculty and students in the School of Pharmacy have worked together to produce cutting-edge research in a variety of disciplines, which have led to numerous presentations at premier scientific conferences and publications in respected peer-reviewed journals.

Our faculty actively participate in varied research and scholarship efforts including laboratory-based studies, clinical and translational research, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Center for Excellence in Collaborative Education

Pharmacy Collaboration with Doctors, Dentists, and Other Caregivers

Students representing the full range of health professions programs work with one another through interactive activities in UNE's Center for Excellence in Collaborative Education (CECE). This program prepares the next generation of health care leaders for team-based practice through simulations, service learning, co-conducted research, global immersion experiences and more.


The School of Pharmacy has two residency programs: the PGY-1 Community Pharmacy Residency Program and the Residency Teaching Certificate Program. The PGY-1 Community Pharmacy Residency Program provides residents with the advanced clinical knowledge, teaching skills and leadership training to be a successful community-based pharmacist. In the Residency Teaching Certificate Program, pharmacy residents across northern New England are immersed in academic pharmacy and experiential teaching methods.
