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.
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.
Our overarching goal [is] to increase the applicant pool of underreprresented minority students in the pharmacy pipeline.
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.
I chose to go to the Rockford campus because it is smaller and more intimate.
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.
