Wyoming’s gateway for health professionals

The College of Health Sciences embodies the World Health Organization statement: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." (WHO, 1948). We teach new models of affordable healthcare, the Patient Centered Medical Home concept, and expanded roles for practitioners, electronic medical records and telehealth. Students take advantage of opportunities to conduct research and volunteer through our many national and international clubs, organizations and programs. 

UW Health Sciences educates the Wyoming health care workforce to provide high quality care to Wyoming and beyond. We proudly participate in WWAMI, a regional medical education program with the University of Washington School of Medicine. WWAMI is the primary means of access for allopathic medical education in Wyoming. UW Health Sciences also supports two Family Medicine Residency programs in Casper and Cheyenne.

UW Pharmacy Students Rank Nationally for Residency Program Placement

June 4, 2018

The University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy is ranked among the top schools in the nation for the percentage of students placed in postgraduation residency positions.

While the national match rate for all participating students following both pharmacy phases is 65 percent, UW students matched at a rate of 82 percent.

Each spring, graduating pharmacy students across the nation participate in the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Residency Match process. Students begin by applying to programs of interest and then go through an interview process. Both the students and the programs then rank one another, and an algorithm is applied to match the students and residency programs according to their rankings. Meet the students!
