Providing Outstanding Education, Excellence in Research, and Service to the Public and Other Health Professions
The Department of Pharmacy Practice and Pharmaceutical Sciences (PPPS) is one of five academic departments within the College of Pharmacy and is located on the Duluth campus. We are dedicated to continuously improving interdisciplinary pharmaceutical care education, research, practice and service focused on the health and well-being of underserved, rural, and indigenous communities. Our multidisciplinary faculty, comprised of basic, clinical, social, and behavioral scientists with expertise in both pharmaceutical sciences and practice, work to support this mission. Faculty and students are actively involved in collaborative research, teaching, learning, and service with medical school and nursing school colleagues. Read the PPPS strategic plan.
Our Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree program educates students to become pharmacists who are generalist pharmacy practitioners and prepares them to identify, resolve and prevent drug related problems. Pharmacy students at the University of Minnesota learn to provide patient care to achieve positive drug therapy outcomes that improve the quality of patients’ lives.
