Welcome to the Division of Pharmacy Practice and Administrative Sciences at the Winkle College of Pharmacy. It is an exciting time to be a pharmacist. Pharmacy practice is evolving and the role of the pharmacist has greatly expanded with even more expansion anticipated in the near future.

The Division has faculty who are clinical practitioners with practice sites with many of our partners such as UCHealth, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, Mercy Health, Kroger, the Linder Center of Hope and the Cincinnati Health Department. The faculty provide expert care to patients while educating pharmacy students and residents. The Division also has Health Outcomes faculty. These faculty conduct leading research in the area of pharmacoeconomics, pharmacoepidimeology, drug utilization and pricing.

Our faculty teach in multiple programs in the college: the Doctor of Pharmacy program, the graduate program, and our new program focused on pharmacy leadership. Our faculty care deeply about educating students. They are student-focused and spend much time and effort ensuring that students receive a quality education that prepares them for their career. We guide students as they develop into caring clinicians or great researchers.

Please explore our newly expanded website. On behalf of our entire faculty, I encourage you to learn more about us. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.
