The primary purpose of the Department of Pharmacy Services is to promote optimal clinical outcomes for our patients.

The Department of Pharmacy Services provides care to patients managed by UW Medicine. Pharmacy staff located in centralized and remote inpatient and ambulatory practice settings at University of Washington Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Hall Health Center and other affiliated Neighborhood Clinics work under the leadership of the Director of the Department of Pharmacy Services.

Our pharmacists and pharmacy assistants practice in a wide variety of inpatient and ambulatory settings and are integral members of UW Medicine’s health care team. Our strong clinical pharmacy programs are enhanced by automated medication distribution systems and opportunities for participation in teaching and research activities are afforded by our committed partnership with the University of Washington School of Pharmacy.
