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.
From 2007 - 2014, our faculty were issued 33 US patents for their discoveries.
I lost some beloved family members to cancer when I was little.... My lifelong goal has been to discover and create new technology to help not only cancer patients but also their immediate families who feel every bit of pain their loved ones have to suffer from.
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.

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.
