College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences

The Drake College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (CPHS) is dedicated to the mission of preparing today’s learners to be tomorrow’s healthcare leaders.


Students have the opportunity to witness the health care profession up close through hands-on experiential learning and internships throughout the Des Moines community. Students work closely with faculty to collaborate on research, professional development, and community service. Through their work in the classroom and outside of it, students learn the values of collaboration, professionalism, and ethical leadership. 


 Healthcare professionals have the opportunity to make tangible, meaningful impacts on people’s lives. With your support during All In, our students can continue to succeed and thrive as health care professionals in order to make the world a better place.
