U.S. News & World Report ranked the graduate program in pharmacy at the University of Texas at Austin as the third best in the country, in a tie with the University of California, San Francisco, and the University of Michigan. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Minnesota took the top two spots. The distinction is included in the magazine's 2017 list of the nation's best graduate schools.
M. Lynn Crismon, dean of the College of Pharmacy, announced the ranking to college faculty and staff via email.
“I thank each and every one of you for your hard work, your commitment, and all of your contributions to make the UT Austin College of Pharmacy the very best that we can be,” he said.
A third of Waggoner Center faculty members have appointments in the College of Pharmacy, including Associate Director Robert O. Messing.
