The School

Established in 2005, the SIUE School of Pharmacy is composed of the Departments of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacy Practice with a combined faculty of 42, most of whom hold doctoral degrees.

Currently, the school offers only the professional practice Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree.

The program includes 3 years of study on the Edwardsville campus and one full year of "on-the-job" education at an area clinical site.

Admitting about 80 students per year, the school has more than 300 students.[2]

The Express Scripts Drug Information & Wellness Center

The Center is a unit of the Department of Pharmacy Practice and serves as a drug information and wellness center for Central and Southern Illinois. It is named in recognition of the Express Scripts Foundation's multi-year support of the School.[3]

The recommendations of the Summit were accepted in July 2010 by the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM).[4]
