Program Highlights

Concordia University Wisconsin School of Pharmacy (CUWSOP) is located in the suburb of Mequon, Wisconsin, on approximately 200 acres of magnificent Lake Michigan shoreline. It is approximately 15 miles north of downtown Milwaukee. Our location lends itself to tremendous synergy with hospitals, clinics and pharmacies in Southeastern Wisconsin, as well as the remainder of the state – partnering to bring our students high quality clinical experiences.

Concordia’s commitment to health care education can be seen through its nationally recognized programs in nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy. The pharmacy school is an excellent complement to the existing programs and encourages interdisciplinary approaches to health care education.

Our focus is to prepare pharmacy practitioners dedicated to advancing patient-centered pharmaceutical care through medication therapy management in Wisconsin and throughout the country, by working closely with patients and all other healthcare providers to address the physical, mental and spiritual needs of each patient. The School will take full advantage of its metropolitan location to enter into alliances and strategic partnerships with local, regional and national healthcare entities.
