About The University of Texas at El Paso School of Pharmacy
UTEP PHARMACY: The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) School of Pharmacy (www.utep.edu/pharmacy/) continues transitioning from a cooperative pharmacy program with The University of Texas at Austin to a stand-alone School of Pharmacy at UTEP. The mission of the School of Pharmacy is to “bridge borders for access and excellence by transforming pharmacy education, patient care, community service, research and leadership to benefit a 21st century demographic.” UTEP’s School of Pharmacy will be a pioneer for excellence in pharmacy education for “Innovation, Diversity, Engagement, Access, and Leadership (IDEAL).” The School of Pharmacy recruits students from the El Paso and Southwest region in larger numbers than were possible in the earlier cooperative program. The school was granted “Candidate” status in June 2018 by ACPE, and its second class matriculated in the fall of 2018.
