“It is very gratifying that The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy continues to be recognized as one of the top schools in the country,” said Henry J. Mann PharmD, FCCP, FCCM, FASHP, dean and professor at the college. “The faculty, staff, students and our alumni are dedicated to excellence in education, research and practice, and I am impressed with the amazing energy and enthusiasm displayed by our people. Our school is 130 years old, but we strive every day to be better in discovery, innovation, learning and advancing the practice of pharmacy. At Ohio State we are very fortunate to be a part of world-class patient care services and to have extraordinary colleges of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Public Health, and Veterinary Medicine as our partners.”
The ranking of pharmacy programs by US News is based on surveys distributed to deans of Pharmacy, department chairs of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and department chairs of Pharmacy Practice.
