Premier Biomedical Community
The College is located on nine acres in the Washington University Medical Center, one of the nation’s leading biomedical complexes.
Central West End
The medical center is in the heart of the Central West End (CWE) neighborhood. The pedestrian-friendly CWE is home to a youthful collection of local shops, restaurants, bars, salons, and other businesses, tucked within a historic residential district.
Just blocks from the College you’ll find the Cortex Innovation District, known as “the Midwest’s premier innovation hub of bioscience and technology research, development and commercialization.”
Our location helps us create partnerships and research centers that offer educational, research and practice opportunities. It also adds to the energetic culture on campus that promotes innovation and leadership.
It’s a setting few colleges of pharmacy in the world can rival.
Our location will give you opportunities to learn and practice through hands–on experiences and rotations in internationally recognized health care institutions.
