College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences

Next-level care, in the lab and in the field.

In Butler’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences we recognize that healthcare is much more than simply treating diseases. And, as such, we teach students to think bigger.

Through hands-on learning in the classroom, collaborative research with faculty, and clinical experiences with some of the nation’s largest healthcare organizations, we equip students with the knowledge, and skills, to improve health outcomes.

So, whether you graduate as a pharmacist, a PA, a nurse, a healthcare executive, or advance your post-professional education, you’ll be prepared to improve the quality of life of the patients, and community, you serve.
