Reinventing pharmacy education for the next generation
Binghamton University’s new School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SOPPS) is a research-focused 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 30 outstanding faculty and staff are already on board; we intend to grow that number to approximately 50 within two 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 joined us on the main Vestal campus in August 2017, and began
classes in our brand-new, $60 million, state-of-the-art building in nearby Johnson City in fall 2018. When fully enrolled after four years, the school
will have approximately 380–400 students — 350 in the PharmD program and an additional
30–50 PhD students.
