Our Students

Our students come from different states, countries, cultures, walks of life, abilities and talents. They are new college graduates and career changers, mothers and fathers.

They are a diverse group, but they all share important traits and common goals.

They are committed to the profession, passionate about pharmacy and community, determined to succeed and lead in their field.

They want to be pharmacists because they’re interested in science and medicine but don’t want to be a doctor, they value interactions with patients and want to be a part of their community, they want to serve on the front lines of healthcare and be part of the solution to some of the challenges facing healthcare today. They see how satisfied their fellow pharmacists are, and fell in love with medicine while caring for a family member.

They’re interested in research, retail, pharmacogenetics, public health, medication safety, marketing, hospital pharmacy, ambulatory care, oncology, and so much more.
