The College of Pharmacy provides an unsurpassed education for students.
The Division of Clinical and Administrative Sciences has three sections, Acute Care Practices, Ambulatory Care Practices and Behavioral and Administrative Science.
DBPS strives to increase the breadth and depth of fundamental and applied knowledge acquired by students to assure that they become proficient pharmacists. As a minority serving institution the DBPS serves to educate pharmacist with varying ethnic backgrounds as a means to increase the cultural competencies apparent in the health care environment.
The pharmacy residency program at Xavier's College of Pharmacy includes three residencies, including an XUCOP - LSUHSC Pharmacy Practice Residency Program, PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program, and the Community Pharmacy Residency Program.

The purpose of the Professional Experience Program (PEP) within the College of Pharmacy is to expose students to various pharmacy practice experiences within the profession. This is accomplished through the Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience (IPPE) and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) as structured experiential courses. Students are exposed to the concept of professionalism, developing practice skills and gaining exposure to a variety of career opportunities. Ultimately, PEP coordinates opportunities for active participation and comprehensive experiences such that students gain the required skills and judgment necessary within the pharmacy profession.
