School of Pharmacy Department of Pharmacy Administration


Welcome to the Ole Miss Department of Pharmacy Administration website. With today's Donna West-Strumchallenges in the health care system and a movement toward improving the appropriate and efficient use of pharmaceuticals at both the individual patient and population level, it is an exciting time to be in pharmacy administration. There are many career opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry, government agencies, managed care, academia, pharmacies, PBMs, CROs, and other health care consulting organizations for people with expertise in pharmacy administration. The health care industry is looking for people with advanced training in pharmaceutical marketing, pharmaceutical management, pharmaceutical outcomes and economics, and pharmacoepidemiolgy. Our graduate program has been providing graduate training in these areas for over 45 years, and many alumni have found rewarding career paths and become leaders in their field. We encourage you to take some time to peruse our website and learn more about our Department and its graduate program. Through these pages, we provide a glimpse of the many research, teaching, and service activities in which the Department is involved. We invite you to visit us in Oxford and meet the faculty and students.
