Situated in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, the University of Utah College of Pharmacy overlooks the main campus and the Salt Lake valley. Skaggs Hall is located in the Health Sciences Center, which incorporates the University of Utah Hospital, the School of Medicine, the colleges of Health, Nursing, and Pharmacy, the Eccles Health Sciences Education Bldg, as well as the Eccles Health Sciences Library. All classroom instruction takes place in the Eccles Health Sciences Education Bldg, which houses state of the art classrooms, laboratories, computer facilities, conference rooms, lockers and student lounges.
The College of Pharmacy has well-equipped facilities to train students in all areas of the pharmaceutical sciences and professional practice. State-of-the-art scientific instruments are available for undergraduate and graduate research. Additional adjacent facilities for research and instruction include the Biomedical Polymers Research Building, University Research Park, Poison Control Center, and University Hospital. Clinical clerkships and fellowships or residencies are available in a variety of professional practice settings.
The student-faculty ratio in all programs is small, so students receive concentrated, individual attention. The faculty, many of whom are recognized authorities in their areas of specialization, are committed to providing each student with a valuable educational experience. Since the college is located within the Health Sciences Center, pharmacy students can interact on a daily basis with students who are training in the other health professions and sciences. Student professional organizations are active on campus and provide students with the opportunity to participate in extracurricular service and social activities.
