Touro College of Pharmacy is unique among four-year pharmacy programs. What sets us apart?
For starters, we provide an exceptional combination of classroom education and rotation experiences that is rare among pharmacy schools. Our unique curriculum allows you to complete your time in the classroom and laboratory in two and a half years (5 semesters) of rigorous studies. This will allow you to experience nine different pharmacy rotations, more experiential education than most other colleges of pharmacy – 10 to 14 weeks more - so you have more opportunity to put what you learn into practice.
We are located in Manhattan and our facilities include state-of-the-art laboratories and a model pharmacy where students can gain critical experience as practicing pharmacists.
Beyond that we are the pharmacy school that trains pharmacists in the patient-centered care process, and focuses on promoting wellness, cultural awareness, and community service.
We strive to increase the number of minority health professionals while serving under-resourced communities and providing outreach and education about preventive care. We also work to promote the study of science and the field of pharmacy and are affiliated with STEM.
