University of the Sciences in Philadelphia

The roots of University of the Sciences in Philadelphia reach back to 1821, when the institution was founded as America’s first pharmacy college, the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. Today, the university continues to build on that esteemed reputation and is now home to 25 undergraduate and 21 graduate programs in five colleges. Our 3,000 students have enrolled in our premier programs in the health sciences, ranging across pharmacy with its direct entry doctoral program to pre-med to healthcare business and health policy.\r\n\r\nThis is a university that traverses almost the entire range of the health sciences fields. Students may study traditional sciences such as biology and chemistry or pursue demanding careers in physical and occupational therapy. They may explore new fields such as bioinformatics and pharmacognosy on the frontiers of learning, or they may be preparing for a life shaping policy for medical and governmental institutions.\r\nWith careers in healthcare continuing to grow, a University of the Sciences’ education not only makes for a rewarding choice, but an investment in the future.\r\n\r\nKey to our distinctive education is a tradition of hands-on research at every level. Our undergraduates participate in highly engaging research in their earliest studies. Our alumni have contributed to progress in every dimension of the health sciences, from pioneering the use of x-rays in the 19th century to unlocking the genetic code in the 20th to discovering countless new medications. Recent graduates have continued this legacy as founders of pharmaceutical companies and companies serving the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.\r\n\r\nWhat is new and different at University of the Sciences’ Recent new programs include degrees in physics, cell biology, public health, science and humanities, and health and fitness management. But what is truly new every day is our students’ deepening perspective on how they can make a difference in the critically important health sciences.
