Program Description

The Fairleigh Dickinson University School of Pharmacy is one of only two degree-granting pharmacy schools in New Jersey, and is the first in the state to be associated with a private university.The School's dynamic program of study integrates the very best practices in pharmacy education today. Students will: Have the option to specialize in a concentrated area of study and earn a master's-level degree concurrently with the PharmD degree. Participate in new partnerships with pharmacy leaders in industry, retail, government and hospitals who will provide mentoring, guidance and resources. Benefit from the strengths of a small college environment, yet learn from top-tier faculty in new facilities specifically designed for the School of Pharmacy. The School's pharmacy curriculum, leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree, will expose students to a broad range of views and skills building. It was designed in partnership with stakeholders representing many sectors in health care. At its foundation are courses that provide integration of topics in basic sciences, pathophysiology, pharmacology, pharmaceutics, therapeutics and patient care. Further distinguishing the curriculum are courses that include topics designed to advance each student's knowledge and skills in human behaviors, communication, informatics, data analytics, medication safety, leadership and individualized patient care. Classroom learning is enhanced by the use of advanced technology. Hybrid and practice experience courses emphasize active learning and give students time for managing their learning opportunities.

Interviews

Other interview format
We believe that the interview should serve as an opportunity for us to learn more about you, but should also serve as a chance for you to gather more information about our program, faculty, staff, curriculum, campus, and anything else you may want to know. The basic itinerary for the day includes a welcome session, three/four mini-interviews with faculty and staff from the School, a campus tour, and a time for a one-on-one question and answer session with a School team member. The day should last about 4-5 hours in total.
