Collaborative Curriculum

Discover a program designed to prepare you for diverse career paths within pharmacy.  

Our integrated curriculum coordinates your lecture topics with your labs so what you learn continues to build upon itself each academic year, allowing you to apply your didactic knowledge throughout your student pharmacist experience, and to explore pharmacy topics through elective focus areas in clinical services, community care, public health and research, and during rotations.

Expansive Experiential Learning

Benefit from one of the most extensive rotation selections in the Midwest, including local, national and international rotations, designed for you to find your niche — our experiential learning curriculum encourages you to hone your skills through hands-on learning and experiences in a variety of practice settings under the guidance of our extensive preceptor network.  

Beginning in the first year of the program, experiential rotations provide you with hands-on learning and experiences to put what you have learned into practice, and you’ll gain insight into subspecialties that may inspire a career you didn’t even know you were passionate about.
