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.
We start with the idea that there are researchers on campus with a seed of a drug discovery project and then we pull together the team and resources capable of moving the project to the next level.
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.
All of my teachers are experts in their fields which provides me with the knowledge and research opportunities to further my career in the small world of pharmacy.

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.
