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.
Choosing the Rockford Campus...was a perfect fit. Getting a superior education while being close to my family and friends is priceless.
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.
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.
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.
