At Larkin University and our Colleges of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences it’s all about impacting Lives – yours, your community, and the people and patients you will serve.

In a sea of sameness, Larkin is different. The University and its College of Pharmacy and College of Biomedical Sciences were borne out of a health care delivery pioneer – Larkin Health Systems – with deep roots and commitment to the needs of minority communities they have served for two decades. For these Larkin institutions it has never been about pivoting to meet or exploit a trend or a perceived opportunity, but rather a singular focus on healthcare where everything done in the classroom, in a lab, on a clinical rotation, or on a research initiative begins and ends with a patient in mind and serving the greater good.

We invite you to explore all that our Colleges have to offer and how our innovative, collaborative educational approaches best prepare our students to contribute to today’s healthcare system team-based care models.

Ribbon Cutting was Held at Larkin University To Celebrate New Student Breakout Rooms

Philanthropist Mark D. Kent was Honored for Generous Donation Making Rooms Possible

Larkin University faculty and staff gathered to celebrate the two new student breakout rooms on the Miami Gardens Campus. In attendance was Dr. Mark D. Kent, Chair of Larkin University’s Board of Trustees, and his family, whose generous donation made the breakout rooms possible.

“I joined the board of Larkin University nearly four years ago. I truly love its mission to educate the young minds within our community. Remodeling the student study rooms just felt like the right way to support their learning efforts,” said Dr. Kent, “I was super excited to attend the ribbon cutting. To have faculty and staff attend, as well as Dr. Jack Michel who founded Larkin University attend as well, meant the world to me and my family.”

At Larkin University and our College of Pharmacy and College of Biomedical Sciences, we strive to deliver our L.I.O.N. promise every day in all we do. It’s what differentiates us from other institutions of higher learning. Here is what it means to us and what we promise to you:


Where future leaders learn about themselves, others and commit to serving the common good. Accessible to ALL.


Where the curious learn to take risks, experiment, and test assumptions.  A transformational experience based on a new way of thinking.


Where your future is defined by the value you bring, not solely by the value you get.


Where our investment in the individual is matched by our commitment to the community.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion –
striving to have a positive impact on the future.

While other institutions aspire to be a diverse and inclusive community, we are one – it is a fundamental building block of our being. Our culture
promotes diversity and inclusion within an exceptional community of
students, faculty, and administrators. We believe this environment
stimulates new thinking and a better understanding of the communities our students will serve, while developing leaders that will improve human healthcare worldwide.

Immersive learning to empower and
prepare future healthcare leaders and exemplary practitioners.

Our singular focus on Pharm.D. and Biomedical Sciences healthcare
programs uniquely positions us to provide focused, clinical and non-clinical experiences with opportunities to work beside award-winning faculty within a small, hands-on, collaborative environment.
