Where today's experts shape the leaders of tomorrow.
UIC is ranked the #6 College of Pharmacy in the country for good reason: research and clinical innovations, discoveries and comprehensive, committed teaching. That is why we've been defining the field for more than 150 years.
Our Chicago campus is strategically located in the world-renown Illinois Medical District, providing numerous educational, clinical, and collaborative opportunities in a diverse urban setting.
Our Rockford campus, which opened in 2010, shares a 20-acre wooded site and state-of-the-art facilities with the U of I College of Medicine and College of Nursing at Rockford. Students gain hands-on clinical experience at the city’s multiple hospitals.
Many hands pulling in one direction can share the load. I want to help the students whose careers will follow mine, and I hope other alums feel the same.
The people in this department have a lot of respect for one another and know they can walk down the hallway and talk with one of their colleagues about research problems and know that at the end of the talk, they may have another idea for a successful research project.
We're trying to understand how these bacteria use chemical signaling...and how that helps them live in our bodies either asymptomatically or in the pathway to making us sick.

I chose UIC, primarily, for the videotaped lectures. Although I try never to miss class, I love that I can go home and re-listen to lectures.
Why UIC? Because our students are given the foundation to pursue their dreams.
Last year, our residency match rate was 76% (compared to 58% nationally) in 16 states.
There’s always room in our legacy for more great minds and caring hearts, whether you’re a student, professor, preceptor, or supporter of our mission.
