The College joined the University’s other four Colleges and Schools in 2011 and graduated its first class in 2015. The College of Pharmacy is proud to share in the University's commitment to interprofessional education in which students learn about, from, and with students in other healthcare professional programs. This team-based approach to healthcare education produces graduates who understand and appreciate the roles of their colleagues in the delivery of healthcare, and embrace the practice of patient-centered, team-based care.

Located between Chicago and Milwaukee in North Chicago, IL, and the only college of pharmacy in Lake County, our program exposes students to practice in urban, suburban and rural areas at both emerging and traditional pharmacy practice settings.
