Everything we do at Larkin University begins and ends with a person in mind – our students, their communities, the patients, and people they will be serving.
We develop leaders in pharmacy education, pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical sciences, and biomedical sciences who make a difference in human health across their communities.
And we are driven by our Larkin L.I.O.N. mantra:
Leadership. Innovation. Opportunity. Nurturing.
Whether you’re visiting as a prospective student, returning as one of our alumni, interested in a research or educational collaboration, or are simply curious as to what one of Florida’s newest private not-for-profit universities has to offer, I am honored to welcome you to Larkin University!
Founded in 2013, Larkin University is one of the newest universities in the State of Florida. Our vision has been and continues to be to build and shape a new health sciences university committed to graduate and professional education in a stimulating multicultural, multiethnic environment to serve the needs of a diverse global society.
South Florida represents one of most diverse cultural areas within the United States, which underscores the need for a diverse population of well-trained health professionals to serve the community. It is with great pride that the mission of Larkin University continues to reflect a devotion to interprofessional education, recognizing the need for population parity in serving the education needs of our communities in South Florida, and helping to fill the gap in the shortage of highly trained health care experts locally and nationally.
Larkin University delivers innovative education in a dynamic learning environment that incorporates the latest technologies and evidence-based science. Our dedicated faculty truly cares about our students and their future roles in health care and related industries such as research and education.
Each of our degree granting programs reflect the key components of the institutional mission of Larkin University:
Larkin University identifies, evaluates, and publishes goals and outcomes for student achievement, appropriate to the University mission, the nature of the students we serve, and the kinds of programs we offer. We here at Larkin University are proud of what we have achieved to-date and look forward to serving in ways that continue to benefit our diverse student population and the needs of our community. I am convinced that Larkin University will soon be one of the leading medical universities in South Florida – strong in research, excellent in education!
Thank you for visiting our Larkin University website! I look forward to welcoming you to our campus.
My sincere best,
Rudi H. Ettrich, RNDr. MSc. PhD.
