The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy has established a reputation for excellence and innovation in health outcomes research, pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical and regulatory sciences, and translational medicine.
This reputation for excellence has been led by the efforts of stellar faculty partnering with outstanding staff, postdoctoral fellows, residents, and promising students.
At this inflection point in history, faced with ongoing health and societal inequities fueled by systemic racism and oppression, the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy has committed to reimagine excellence through the lens of inclusion. Inclusive excellence means leveraging the talents, expertise, and leadership of our diverse stakeholders to promote student success, advance equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) through innovation and discovery, foster a culture of wellbeing and belonging for all, and pursue institutional excellence. Together, we will go beyond excellent to realize our vision to equitably improve the health of society.
