Welcome to the first ACPE accredited school of pharmacy in Orange County.

While Chapman University was founded in 1861, Chapman University School of Pharmacy (CUSP) was established in 2013 to educate and develop the next generation of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists to improve health through engaging in team-based, patient safety-focused health care and conducting transformative research. 

CUSP is located at the state-of-the-art Harry and Diane Rinker Health Science Campus in beautiful Irvine, California.  We invite you to view our video walking tour.
