For nearly two centuries, Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (PCP) has trained leaders and innovators in pharmacy practice, research, and education. Our graduates discover and deliver the innovations that advance patient care. Home to programs in pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences, pharmacology & toxicology, and pharmaceutical and healthcare business, PCP is where modern pharmacy started. Since its founding in 1821 as the first college of pharmacy in North America, names like McNeil, Lilly, Wyeth—founders of the top pharmaceutical companies in the world—and many others have launched their careers here. We continue that tradition of excellence with our hands-on approach, offering future pharmacists clinical experience—practically from day one.
