Choose Among Three Missouri Campus Locations for Your Pharm.D. Education

No matter where you take your Pharm.D. classes, you learn from faculty who are either present in the classroom or streaming live using distance technology. Students experience the same level of success in passing the licensure exams, residency placement and on-time graduation at all three sites.

We accept up to 95 students per class in Kansas City, up to 30 per class in Columbia and up to 30 per class in Springfield.

Kansas City

A major metropolitan center with a population of more than two million, Kansas City has world-class arts and entertainment, an enthusiastic professional and collegiate sports scene and, of course, world-famous barbeque. Kansas City is the home base for the UMKC School of Pharmacy, where our campus sits alongside schools of medicine, dentistry and nursing and health studies. We are one of only 18 institutions in the country to have all major health professions schools in the same location.
