Overview

Why STLCOP?

St. Louis College of Pharmacy (STLCOP) is different. In its tight-knit campus community, students find opportunities to learn, grow and become a part of the College’s legacy. The College provides an engaging learning environment where students can explore a variety of options, develop practical expertise, and become leaders in their professions and communities.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) programs in Health Sciences and Health Humanities prepare students for employment in a variety of health care careers or graduate or professional study in areas such as medicine, dentistry or physical therapy. Courses are taught through a health care lens to make them applicable to clinical, practice and work experiences.

The Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program is focused on preparing future pharmacists to provide interprofessional, evidence-based, patient-centered care in any practice setting, achieving positive drug therapy outcomes for patients.

The College currently offers a Doctor of Pharmacy in two formats – a four-year Doctor of Pharmacy and a Doctor of Pharmacy with an integrated Bachelor of Science.

  •      Doctor of Pharmacy: Prospective students are admitted in the first professional (P1) year and complete four years of study to earn their Pharm.D.

Doctor of Pharmacy with an Integrated Bachelor of Science: Students are admitted directly from high school or as undergraduate transfer students into the undergraduate program. Students progress into the Pharm.D. program and the first professional year fulfills senior-level undergraduate requirements.

World-Class Location: Unparalleled Opportunities

St. Louis College of Pharmacy is located on nine acres in the heart of one of the world's finest biomedical and patient-care centers. It's a setting few colleges of pharmacy in the world can rival. The College's location provides unrivaled rotation, research, and career opportunities for students. The College is actively forging partnerships with nearby institutions such as Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, St. Louis Children's Hospital, Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center, and Goldfarb School of Nursing. The College’s research centers include the Center for Clinical Pharmacology and the Center for Interprofessional Education.

The Center for Clinical Pharmacology is housed on the sixth floor of the Academic and Research Building. It was established in collaboration with Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis' Department of Anesthesiology and is Washington University's first shared research center with another higher education institution. The center will bring together resources and researchers to deepen understanding of the mechanisms of action of drugs and identify strategies for the development and application of new treatments.

The Center for Interprofessional Education (CIPE) creates opportunities for St. Louis College of Pharmacy students to serve on interprofessional, patient-centered health care teams from Washington University School of Medicine and Goldfarb School of Nursing. The center also provides professional development opportunities for practicing pharmacists to develop skills as an active member on collaborative health care teams.
