Pharmacy… The Jefferson Difference
Welcome to the Jefferson School of Pharmacy, an important part of one of the nation's premier academic healthcare centers.
Founded in 2008, we have built an innovative curriculum that effectively advances health through teaching, research and service. Underpinning that curriculum is a diverse group of healthcare leaders, faculty and preceptors who reflect a broad range of experiences and perspectives and are recognized for their leadership in national and international associations and organizations as well as their research in diverse areas such as pharmaceutics, pharmacology, health outcomes and the clinical sciences. They are dedicated to moving past the outer limits of accepted clinical knowledge and disseminating new knowledge in our labs, classrooms and the healthcare environment. Both curricular and extracurricular experiences at the Jefferson School of Pharmacy are designed to enable our student pharmacists to develop and apply the requisite skills to become effective members and leaders of tomorrow's healthcare teams and to improve the overall health of our community.
As part of Thomas Jefferson University, the largest freestanding academic medical center in Philadelphia, the Jefferson School of Pharmacy is involved in one of the country's most prominent interprofessional healthcare learning programs, with a dynamic center of education recognized for progressive care practice, education and research. Collaboration is a Jefferson hallmark, and students and faculty have opportunities to partner with peers within the University, with the Hospital and in clinical settings throughout the region. The Jefferson School of Pharmacy also benefits from an integral partnership with Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, nationally-renowned as an outstanding hospital pharmacy.
The Jefferson School of Pharmacy is part of a legacy of collaborative teaching, research and scholarship uniquely positioned to impact the health and well-being of our community, our country and the world.
