Created to Serve

The Texas A&M Irma Lerma Rangel School of Pharmacy opened in 2006 to address the shortage of pharmacists in the border region of south Texas. Since then, we have established an exceptional, fully-accredited pharmacy program that prepares our student body to be competent, caring, ethical Aggie pharmacists through a balanced program of education, research and service.


The Texas A&M Irma Lerma Rangel School of Pharmacy is pleased to announce successful residency and fellowship placements for 2024. These students have worked hard to achieve their goal of matching with a PGY1 residency program or fellowship, and we wish them the best of luck as they begin their journeys. We congratulate the entire Class of 2024!

Our commitment to Texas

Today, we continue to honor her vision, bringing Texans the finest in health education, promotion and care as we advance the knowledge and technology of pharmacy and pharmacotherapy.

Bringing it home

Our roots run deep in South Texas, and we're proud to bring our expertise where it's needed most to overcome disparities in health care delivery.

Through pharmacy practice rotations in six regions across the state, our students learn that compassionate care is more than just the way patients are treated within the walls of health institutions. Comprehensive, patient-focused care comes from an in-depth understanding of the community, culture and needs patients have in their day-to-day lives.
