Department of Pharmacy Practice

The Department of Pharmacy Practice in the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences provides the basic and advanced clinical practice coursework and practical skills training components of the doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) curriculum. The department also encourages and supports pharmacy practice-related research and scholarship.

With our expanding alumni base and a core group of talented and dedicated pharmacy practice faculty and professional staff, our students are working side-by-side with local pharmacists, physicians, medical students, nurses and other healthcare providers to advance patient care services in hospitals, clinics and community pharmacies locally and regionally. Through our capstone and research track programs, our students have many opportunities to engage in meaningful clinical research with our faculty. The coursework and training provided by the department are closely aligned and coordinated with the pharmacy practice experiences structured within the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum and prepare out graduates for diverse pharmacy careers including postgraduate residency and fellowship programs. 

The profession of pharmacy is exciting, rewarding and ever-changing. There has never been a better time to consider pharmacy as a career. Upon graduation, our students will be practice-ready and team-ready to manage drug therapy problems, helping to improve patient outcomes and reduce hospital readmissions.
