Graduate Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences
The Pharmaceutical Sciences combine a broad range of scientific disciplines that are critical to the discovery and development of new drugs and therapies. The University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy offers through the College of Graduate Health Sciences a course of study leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences with concentration in one of four areas: Medicinal Chemistry, Bioanalysis, Drug Delivery, or Pharmacometrics.
The program aims at educating the next generation of leaders in the pharmaceutical sciences, and to create and disseminate new knowledge with the goal of bringing the benefits of the pharmaceutical sciences to the enhancement of the health and well-being of the people of Tennessee, the nation, and beyond. The program comprises approximately 40 full-time and part-time faculty members and has relationships with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the University of Memphis.
Over the years, pharmaceutical scientists have been instrumental in discovering and developing innovative drugs that save thousands of lives and improve countless others. Pharmaceutical scientists can pursue a variety of career opportunities, and there is a continuously high demand for graduates with a Ph.D. degree in many areas of the pharmaceutical sciences. Our graduates have consistently secured employment in academia, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, or government agencies.
