Our Mission

The College of Pharmacy is dedicated to fostering graduates and professionals who will maximize the health of the public by advancing patient care and facilitating the discovery, understanding, and cost effective use of medicines.

The College of Pharmacy, a major academic unit of Oregon State University, serves the state and region through its programs in pharmaceutical education, research, patient care, and public service.  It endeavors to prepare students to enter into the practice of pharmacy as competent, caring, ethical professionals/citizens committed to life-long learning.  The Office of Continuing Pharmaceutical Education (CPE) serves as an extension of the College and seeks to provide CPE opportunities of high quality to meet the needs of practitioners in the state, region, and nation.

 The College promotes life-long learning by instilling in its graduates the philosophy that learning must continue throughout their career and by facilitating opportunities for postgraduate continuing education and certification.
