Program Details

Program Description

The objective of the Pharmacy program is to educate students for current and future roles in the profession of pharmacy. In addition to learning the scientific and technical knowledge and communication skills necessary to be a pharmacist, students are instilled with the concept of a pharmacist's professional responsibilities as a provider of patient care. The PharmD program is a six-year program, with four years of professional doctoral study preceded by a minimum of two years of preprofessional study at an accredited institution.

Accredited by the Accreditation Council on Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the School of Pharmacy graduates students who are eligible for examination to practice in any state. Successfully passing the West Virginia Board of Pharmacy examination gives graduates the option of practicing in 49 other states, DC, and Puerto Rico, as long as they meet the requirements of reciprocity.

The Mylan Center for Pharmaceutical Care Education is a state-of-the-art patient care center. This facility is one of a few of its kind in the nation. It contains a model pharmacy, a drug information library, a multipurpose laboratory with laptop computers available at each work station, a sterile products laboratory, three small group classrooms, patient counseling rooms, and a conference room. The Center is also equipped with the latest computerized audiovisual and distance learning technologies to assist our faculty's efforts in innovative teaching.
