Welcome to the website of LIU Pharmacy (the Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences of Long Island University). Established in 1886 as the Brooklyn College of Pharmacy, LIU Pharmacy is one of the oldest and largest institutions of its kind in the nation. We are proud of our long and distinguished history and of the accomplishments of our faculty and alumni who continue to make important contributions to the profession of pharmacy.
Pharmacists are rapidly becoming one of the most important members of the health care team as they assume responsibilities in the treatment and prevention of disease and in protecting the public health. Pharmacists are viewed as the “medication experts” and are the most accessible health care professionals in the community. Administering immunizations and overseeing medication therapy are among the exciting new roles that will attract bright students to our programs.
LIU Pharmacy is a student-centered institution. Our mission is to provide access and academic excellence to those who are interested in pursuing a career in pharmacy and related areas. An extraordinary faculty and state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities are integrated with the most prestigious and comprehensive array of clinical affiliations in the United States. Participating in our network are over thirty major medical centers and long-term care facilities, hundreds of community pharmacies, our own International Drug Information Center, and nearly 1,000 preceptors.
In addition to our Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) program, the College offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in a variety of pharmacy and related administrative and scientific disciplines of particular interest to the pharmaceutical industry. These programs provide graduate students with outstanding research opportunities and with the skills for career growth.
On our website, prospective students can learn more about our academic programs, financial aid and the application process. For our alumni, the website will keep you abreast of various alumni events as well as our extensive continuing education offerings for practicing pharmacists.
Thank you for visiting with us!
