Pharmacy Overview

The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences offers a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD). The PharmD is a professional degree that enables one to work as a pharmacist, interacting with patients and other health care practitioners about medications. It is not an undergraduate degree (such as a BS or BA). An undergraduate degree is not currently required as an admissions prerequisite.

Since 1886, the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SPPS) is one of the most established, innovative and progressive schools of pharmacy in the country and a pioneer institution in drug development and biopharmaceutics. The school and PharmD program are ranked by U.S. News and World Reports #1 in New York State and #14 in the United States; SPPS represents the premier pharmacy school and PharmD program within the State University of New York system.
