The Destination for Pharmacy Education

Harrison School of Pharmacy Locations


Since 1885, the study of pharmacy has held a prominent place on the Auburn University campus. By 1941, the School of Pharmacy was officially established and now admits a class of approximately 150 future pharmacists each Fall. With a total Pharm.D. enrollment nearing 600 students, HSOP also has a bustling graduate program of more than 60 students pursuing masters and Ph.D. degrees.

As the only public school of pharmacy in the state of Alabama, HSOP is committed to training pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists to improve the health outcomes of those in the state and beyond. To support that commitment, along with Walker Building in the heart of the Auburn campus, the school also has a satellite campus in Mobile, the Pharmacy Research Building located in Auburn's Health Sciences Sector, and six clinical sites spread around the state.


Walker Building

Located in the heart of the Auburn campus in the shadow of Jordan-Hare Stadium, the W.W. Walker, Jr. Building houses the HSOP leadership, academic departments, and administrative units. Built in 1976 and encompassing more than 100,000 square feet, the building includes research labs, faculty and staff offices, the Auburn University Pharmaceutical Care Center, and classroom space for 125 pharmacy students and the graduate program. In 2006, the 45,000 square foot Education and Clinic Wing was added in the footprint of the old auditorium, adding automated classrooms and wireless technology, state-of-the art learning environments including 44 student-centered team rooms, two new auditoriums, a student lounge, seminar rooms, and the pharmaceutical care clinic with exam rooms and a dispensary.

Clinical Sites

The pharmacy practice experiences of a Harrison School of Pharmacy student are not limited to their respective campus. HSOP Pharmacy Practice Faculty are located at multiple practice sites across the state of Alabama and Columbus, Georgia. The sites are broken into regions, including Huntsville/Decatur/North Alabama, Birmingham/Tuscaloosa, Auburn/Montgomery/Columbus, Georgia, and Mobile/Pensacola, Florida.

With HSOP being on a traditional university campus, faculty and preceptors at these training sites give students access to contemporary pharmacy practice during IPPE rotations and the APPEs during the fourth year. With so many clinical sites, HSOP is able to offer diverse and unique experiences, along with more traditional rotations. The rotations are precepted by full-time faculty and affiliate faculty preceptors.
