About us

For more than 125 years, the UMKC School of Pharmacy has continued its mission to educate health care professionals and scientists, conduct research and serve the public and pharmacy profession. Our pharmacy professional degree program is nationally recognized for community engagement and service learning, and our graduate programs and research activities have led us to consistently rank in the top third of pharmacy schools from the National Institutes of Health. Further, our American Pharmacist Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists chapter is recognized as one of the top seven in the country.

We offer rewarding learning and career experiences for students, faculty and staff in both urban and more rural settings with sites throughout Missouri in Kansas City, Columbia and Springfield. As our graduates continue to impact the health of Missourians, we continue to strive to serve others in an altruistic manner, enriching our community through our leadership and seeking excellence in all that we do.
