Why choose St. John’s?

The St. John’s University legacy is Catholic, Vincentian, metropolitan, and global. Graduates aren’t only employable when they leave campus—they take with them all of the hope, compassion, awareness, and well-rounded dialogue that only come from knowing what it means to be a global citizen.

College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences
St. John’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is home to scholars and scientists unified by one intrepid goal: to improve the quality of life for people globally. Thanks to a rigorous program that stresses experiential learning, our students seamlessly transition into rewarding careers after graduation. 

Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, our elite six-year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program is one of a few of its kind that provides students with the clinical and academic skills and knowledge needed to deliver outstanding patient care in all pharmacy settings. Additional undergraduate programs within the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences include Biomedical Sciences, Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Radiologic Sciences, and Toxicology.

In addition to numerous labs, the College’s three Anatomage Tables represent the latest in virtual dissection table technology. The 84-inch-long tables feature high-resolution touch screens that allow users to visualize human anatomy and patient data—exactly as they would on a real cadaver. Each anatomical structure is accurately reconstructed in 3D and sourced from actual human cadavers.
