Our four-year, full-time program offers a first-class pharmacy education with practice-oriented instruction and a strong foundation in the sciences. Students take courses in the pharmaceutical sciences, develop their clinical skills through didactic and group-based coursework, and learn the administrative aspects of pharmacy and health care while emphasizing professionalism, integrity, and diversity.
Students gain the necessary abilities they need to prepare to work in any professional pharmacy setting through:
Courses encompassing both didactic and experiential learning
Experiential learning that accounts for more than 30% of the curriculum
Patient-centered work through on-campus immersions and 2,000 hours of clinical rotations at pharmacy locations in their communities
