A Message From the President
For nearly a century and a half, St. Louis College of Pharmacy has been committed to preparing students to be leaders in pharmaceutical care across the nation and around the world. Our graduates work in, and lead, community pharmacies, hospitals, long-term care centers, managed care environments, research labs, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. Our home is St. Louis – and 73 percent of practicing pharmacists in the St. Louis area are our alumni – but our reach extends much wider. Our 6,941 alumni practice in all 50 states and 13 different countries.
Our commitment to educating great pharmacists is equaled by our obligation to prepare active citizens who have a broad understanding of the arts, humanities, and social and behavioral sciences, with a strong background in the sciences, mathematics, and pharmacy practice. Exposure to renowned faculty and their active research programs in centers of excellence ensures students learn critical problem-solving skills that will prepare them well for a fast-changing profession.
I hope you will take the time to learn more about St. Louis College of Pharmacy and our commitment to our students, our community, and our profession.
John A. Pieper, Pharm.D., FCCP
