The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy is transforming its presence at the Universities at Shady Grove to better address the contemporary challenges confronting health professional education.

Shady Grove CampusA Focus on Interprofessional Education

To fully prepare students with the skills and abilities they will need to be transformational health care professionals, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) – including the School of Pharmacy – is partnering with the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) to establish an interprofessional clinic at USG for Montgomery County residents. With all didactic pharmacy education offered at the School of Pharmacy's Baltimore campus, this clinic will serve as an advanced experiential rotation site for student pharmacists, as well as other health profession students.

The clinic will be operational beginning in 2019 for fourth-year pharmacy students to complete a five-week required ambulatory care rotation.

New Graduate Degree Programs

The School of Pharmacy is expanding its graduate program offerings to help meet the continuing education needs of health professionals both locally and nationally. Beginning in Fall 2019, the following degree program will be available through the USG campus:

  • MS in Pharmaceutical Sciences
    The MS in Pharmaceutical Sciences program will prepare graduates for high impact positions across academia, government, and the pharmaceutical industry. It will emphasize both basic and applied sciences related to the field of drug discovery, drug development, and drug delivery. For more information, please contact graduate program coordinator, Kristina San Juan, at pscgraduate@rx.umaryland.edu.

The School of Pharmacy is a proud member of the USG community, with plans to offer even more educational opportunities for current and prospective students at its Shady Grove campus in the years to come.
