In October 1893, three professors and 11 students began classes in below ground level rooms of the Old Red Main Building at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. Texas pharmacy education was born.
Over the years, the faculty, students, alumni and programs of the UT College of Pharmacy have continued to serve as stellar examples of pharmacy at its finest. Throughout its first century, the college stood at the forefront of innovative and pioneering directions in pharmaceutical education and research. Today, it continues that proud tradition.
