The Pharmacy Profession: An Important Responsibility

Pharmacists are some of the most important professionals in healthcare. Pharmacists fill crucial roles in the healthcare cycle by planning drug therapies, determining dosages and schedules, and educating and counseling patients on proper use and possible side effects. At MWU, you will be trained in all facets of patient-centered care. Expert faculty will provide you with the knowledge to help patients understand when, how, and why to take those medications.

Our experienced faculty will train you to help advance the practice of pharmacy while providing exceptional service to your community. Through our depth of partnerships with the best medical centers, clinics, and diversity of pharmacies, and the proven track record of our alumni, we will build your future as a pharmacist.

Beyond community pharmacy — where approximately 60% of pharmacists practice — your diversity of pharmacy career options includes counseling, preventive medicine, wellness programs, patient education, technical writing or editing, retail or chain pharmacy ownership or management, or pharmacy practice within hospitals, nursing homes, extended care facilities, neighborhood health centers, health maintenance organizations, managed care pharmacies, or government service, as well as pharmaceutical industry research, sales, administration, or marketing. You may also combine your love of teaching, research, and public service by becoming a faculty member.
