  • The Learning Environment

    The Learning Environment

    The PharmD curriculum integrates the latest technologies throughout the professional coursework. Students enjoy state-of-the-art facilities, laboratories, "smart" classrooms, and centers for research. Thanks to a 10-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio, students work side-by-side with faculty. It's all part of an environment based on community and teamwork to create an atmosphere of active collaboration, professional development, and mentorship.

    The coursework is integrated with progressive patient-centered practice experiences. It is capped by a 9-month experiential program. This program in pharmacy leads to licensure in any state provided that the graduate passes board exams and obtains licensure.
