Reinventing pharmacy education for the next generation
Binghamton University’s new School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SOPPS) is a research-intensive professional school offering the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree. In the future, we will also offer a doctoral program leading to a PhD in pharmaceutical sciences.
The pharmacy school will educate students who understand the value of evidence-based,
patient-centered pharmaceutical care and innovative research. Our graduates will serve
their communities in socially responsible ways to improve health and well-being.
Our faculty and departments
More than a dozen outstanding faculty and staff are already on board; we intend to grow that number to approximately 50 within 2 years.
Faculty are being hired to carry out transdisciplinary, cutting-edge research in the following areas:
- Pharmaceutical sciences: drug discovery, drug and device development, pharmaceutics, pharmacology (including neuropharmacology) and pharmacogenomics
- Health outcomes: epidemiology, the economics of healthcare and health behavior
- Clinical sciences: therapeutic benefits and clinical assessment of drugs and devices
Our inaugural class of 85–90 students will join us on the main Vestal campus in August
2017. In the future, the school will reside in a new building in nearby Johnson City. When fully enrolled after 4 years, the school will have approximately
380–400 students — 350 in the PharmD program and an additional 30–50 PhD students.
