Pharmacy Practice

Description

Students The Division of Pharmacy Practice is comprised of faculty who provide education in the administrative and behavioral sciences, clinical services, as well as direct practice experience.

Required courses in administrative and behavioral sciences include introduction to pharmacy, communication skills and ethics in pharmacy practice and pharmacy law.

Required courses in the clinical sciences include nonprescription medications and self-care, pharmacotherapeutics, professional practice experiential training, IV admixtures, patient assessment, and specialty disease management electives.
