The Pharm.D. program prepares students for an exciting career in pharmacy. The patient care pharmacist, or clinical pharmacist, is highly educated in disease process, pharmacotherapy, and patient monitoring. Pharmacists review patient history and disease manifestations to guide the selection of cost-effective therapy. To optimize the outcome of medication use, the pharmacist remains in communication with patients, maximizing adherence to prescribed medication and patient response to therapeutic agents. Pharmacists work closely with interprofessional teams, including physicians, nurses, and other members of the health care team, to review and modify patient-care plans to improve patient outcomes, as required. Pharmacists emphasize disease prevention by providing immunizations, smoking cessation programs, and education about prominent chronic disease states.
The curriculum develops students into lifelong learners, who are actively involved in advocacy for the profession, are patient-centered, and develop team-based relationships with other health-care professionals.
