University of Montana Pharmacy School Maintains Top-10 Research Ranking

The University of Montana continues to be a national leader for earning pharmacy research dollars. In fact, UM’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy tallied $9.3 million from federal grants and other sources in 2005.

According to the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, UM now ranks No. 4 out of 92 pharmacy schools nationally for garnering research funding when number of faculty members is considered. The University moved up one place in this category from the year before.

UM’s pharmacy school has the equivalent of 26 full-time, Ph.D. faculty members who successfully competed for an average of $360,000 apiece in 2005. Only pharmacy programs at the universities of Washington, California-San Francisco and Kansas had a better per-Ph.D.-faculty-member average.

When total research dollars are considered without regard to the number of faculty members, UM ranks No. 7 nationally.
