Destination.Pharmacy Week 2018 – Day 2

Destination Pharmacy Week Logo

It is Day 2 of Destination.Pharmacy Week!

Today we taking a closer look at what classes students take throughout our PharmD program.  Our Doctor of Pharmacy program is a 4-year program in which students spend the first three years in the classroom.  Their fourth year is then spent outside of the classroom, completing various rotations.

The overall goal of the curriculum is to develop a competent, highly engaged, generalist practitioner who can successfully practice pharmacy at an entry-level.  Our curriculum emphasizes the management of disease states and the assurance of quality of care. The curriculum is also designed with a comprehensive focus on patient care, medication therapy management, and disease management.

To give you more insight, we have two special videos to share today.  These videos feature faculty members from the UCSOP’s Department of Pharmaceutical & Administrative Sciences: Dr. Rebecca Linger and Dr. Aymen Shatnawi.

In addition to the regular curriculum, each year students select an elective to take.  One popular elective offered is Dr. Linger’s Ethnopharmacology of Appalachia.  To give you an idea why it is so popular, and what this course is all about, watch the video below:

In the third year, our students take a course in Pharmacogenomics and Medical Genetics. You may be wondering, what exactly is pharmacogenomics?  Check out Dr. Shatnawi’s video below to find out:
