Philadelphia College of Pharmacy

Dean: Edward Foote, PharmD, FCCP

Home to programs in pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences and pharmacology and toxicology, the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (PCP) is where modern pharmacy started. Since its founding in 1821 as the first college of pharmacy in North America, names like McNeil, Lilly, Wyeth — founders of the top pharmaceutical companies in the world — and many others have launched their careers here. We continue that tradition of excellence with our hands-on approach, offering future pharmacists clinical experience — practically from day one.

Graduates of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy play important roles in pharmacies, managed care organizations, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and regulatory agencies.
