  program_description: |
    As the role of pharmacists evolves to a more patient-focused landscape, we are committed to providing an education for students that will prepare them to be beyond practice ready upon entering their careers. 
    
    ACPHS owns two student-operated pharmacies, providing students an entrepreneurial experience to strengthen skills in communication, leadership, and service to a diverse population. Within the program, students have the opportunity to practice their skills during 2,000 hours of rotations, with about 600 rotation sites to choose from.
    
    Students are encouraged to discover their career goals and customize their educational pathway through professional electives, minors, and joint degrees.
    
    Our campus is in the capital city of New York, about 2.5 hours from Boston and New York City, and 3.5 hours from Montreal. Within our neighborhood are major medical centers, laboratories, and other colleges. It is the perfect location for our students to pursue professional opportunities, while enjoying a full college experience.
