We welcome your interest in our great University and encourage you to visit our School of Pharmacy, so you can experience "the Temple difference" firsthand.
Founded in 1901, Temple University School of Pharmacy (TUSP) is one of the oldest in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Located in North Philadelphia, our School is at the hub of the Delaware Valley's extensive pharmaceutical industry. Though the majority of our students come from Pennsylvania, we attract applicants from all over the country and world and pride ourselves on our diverse student population. Our students can draw upon the extensive resources, staff, and facilities of Temple University Hospital, the Medical and Dental Schools, and the College of Allied Health Professions. Ready access to the University's School of Podiatric Medicine in Center City provides a unique opportunity for cross-disciplinary learning in a comprehensive health care environment.
Significantly, our faculty members are active clinical practitioners and pharmaceutical scientists. Our teaching facilities include a state- of-the-art Parenteral Laboratory, a computer lab equipped with the latest pharmaceutical software programs, and multi-media lecture halls. The Moulder Center for Drug Discovery Research, The Haines Center for Pharmacogenomics and the cGMP manufacturing facility promote collaborative research ventures between our School and industry. In addition, these specialty centers provide an opportunity for professional and graduate students to engage in research projects with "state of the art" modern equipment. We also offer our students a unique and well recognized elective program in radioactive pharmaceuticals.
