Top 12 pharmacy graduate schools, ranked by US News

As part of its 2020 best health school rankings, U.S. News & World Report has identified the top 12 pharmacy schools in the U.S. 

For the rankings, the magazine considered and surveyed 134 schools and programs offering doctor of pharmacy degrees accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education. The pharmacy program rankings are based on peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators and faculty that work in the accredited pharmacy degree programs or schools.
