The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences:
The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences operates across two campuses: one in Albany, New York and the other in Colchester, Vermont. It is composed of the Department of Pharmacy Practice and two Departments of Pharmaceutical Sciences (one on each campus). In addition to the PharmD program, the School offers BS and MS degrees in Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Founded in 1881, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS) is a private, independent institution committed to the advancement of healthcare and a cornerstone of the Capital Region of New York state - within a dynamic educational and medical campus environment. There are numerous research capabilities both within and outside the College, including the Albany Medical College, University at Albany, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Pharmaceutical Research Institute (part of ACPHS) that has state of the art core labs in genomics and proteomics. The historic College is rapidly growing in degree programs offered, facilities, and faculty specializations that span the full spectrum of pharmacy and health sciences from drug discovery to patient care. Students pursue a wide range of career pathways in health related fields through undergraduate and graduate programs in pharmacy, biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences, laboratory diagnostics, and health outcomes research. A new 2015 report (http://acphs.edu/press-releases/acphs-ranked-1-value-added-college) from the Brookings Institution ranked ACPHS the #1 school in the country for contributions to students’ outcomes.
Approximately 1,300 students are enrolled at the College’s main campus located in the heart of the Capital District in Albany, New York, and approximately 200 students are enrolled at the satellite campus in Colchester, Vermont.
Under new leadership, the College is seeking to expand its research enterprise in a vibrant and growing community that offers opportunities for collaborative research within the college as well as with local academic institutions, health related organizations and state government. ACPHS offers a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package in areas such as health insurance, retirement, and tuition reimbursement for faculty and the children of faculty members. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
