The UW School of Pharmacy’s graduate programs aim to develop scientific leaders to carry out basic and translational biomedical research, to think critically and make informed decisions at preclinical, clinical and post-approval stages of drug discovery and development, and to integrate knowledge in pharmaceutical sciences, health policy and economics.

Our alumni and postdoctoral fellows go on to become leaders in their respective fields — professors at elite universities, researchers and administrators in health care organizations and pharmaceutical and medical device companies, and policymakers in scientific and government organizations.
