Welcome to the University of New England’s College of Pharmacy! We offer a four-year Doctor of Pharmacy program that is located in Portland, Maine, on a quintessential New England campus designated a national historic district. Construction of the University of New England’s state-of-the-art College of Pharmacy academic and research facility was completed in 2009 and the building is the first facility devoted entirely to pharmacy academic studies and research in the state of Maine.
The Mission of the College of Pharmacy provides an outstanding environment for the teaching-learning process to effectively deliver a contemporary pharmacy curriculum designed to graduate competent practitioners for the state of Maine and the nation.
InterProfessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) At UNE we offer our students the opportunity to work with the other health care professionals and students in our numerous health professions programs. Our goal is to educate practitioners, scholars, and researchers to work together and with patients and clients for relationship-centered health care that is comprehensive, collaborative, caring, safe, and continuous throughout the life cycle.

Applications are reviewed as they are received, and interviews will be conducted throughout the cycle by invitation only. Interviews will be 30 minutes with two interviewers; typically one faculty member and one pharmacist from the community. Candidates will spend time learning about the PharmD program, have the opportunity to meet with current students, prepare a writing sample, and tour the campus.
