UW continues its consistent record by ranking in the top ten nationally
of Schools of Pharmacy. One of the smallest Schools at the UW, Pharmacy has been well-known for providing transformative training to pharmacy practitioners and researchers since its founding as one of the first three colleges at the UW.
“I am so pleased that our peers have recognized our continued excellence in pharmacy education,” said Sean D. Sullivan, professor and dean of the School of Pharmacy. “This ranking validates that we are on the right track in our vision to be the global leader in pharmacy education and our mission to develop exceptional, innovative and diverse pharmacy leaders and scientists. I am proud and honored to be a part of this terrific team of faculty, staff, students, and alumni.”
Schools of Pharmacy are ranked by peer institutions every four years by U.S. News and World Report. In 2013, the last time U.S. News & World Report ran the survey, UWSOP ranked No. 10, amongst 125 schools of pharmacy. In this 2017 survey, UWSOP improved to No. 9 amongst a larger field of 135 schools of pharmacy.
“There has been enormous growth in the last 15 years in the number of schools of pharmacy, but very few have the advantage of being co-located with their collaborative sister health sciences schools—who also rank in the top ten nationally,” continued Sullivan. “This showcases the unique and transformative opportunities an interprofessional health sciences education from UW offers.”
