Our History - From 1898 to Now

The College of Pharmacy traces its origins to the University of Tennessee's Knoxville campus in 1898. The School relocated to Memphis in 1909 to join the city's College of Physicians and Surgeons. The resulting institution became part of the University of Tennessee in 1911, when the UT medical and dental schools were moved to Memphis. The school received college status in 1959, consistent with the other colleges of UT Memphis. Today, the UT Health Science Center, with 2,000 students and 3,000 employees, is one of the nation's leading academic health centers.
