Program Description

The School of Pharmacy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was the first Ph.D. granting School of Pharmacy in the nation. Our Pharmaceutical Sciences Ph.D. Program provides a rigorous background in a range of scientific disciplines that are critical to the success of modern pharmaceutical scientists in industry, government, and academia. With 31 faculty trainers and approximately 65 students, our interdisciplinary program combines pharmaceutically relevant aspects of disciplines such as chemistry, biology, and engineering. Our students earn a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences with a concentration in one of three research cores: Drug Discovery, Drug Action, or Drug Delivery. Individuals from a wide variety of undergraduate academic fields have found a graduate research “fit” within Pharmaceutical Sciences.
