Health Equity Solutions: Health equity ensures that all people have access to optimal health despite their race, ethnicity, culture, or socioeconomic status. Without health equity, residents don’t have the opportunities to be, and stay, healthy. This can have a profound impact. For example, without health equity, children under perform in school and thus fail to reach their potential, businesses see rising healthcare costs and reduced productivity from their employees, and communities and neighborhoods weaken.

Based at a research intensive university, our students have the opportunity to be taught and mentored by faculty pursuing cutting-edge research in all arenas of the field. In addition to its highly regarded pharmacy program, the school boasts exceptional graduate programs in medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, and pharmacology/toxicology. We collaborate with practice partners to offer specialized residencies and fellowships in both disciplines.
