* Small class sizes lend themselves to personalized career preparation
* Classes are taught interactively, with a faculty to student ratio of 1:8 during on-campus professional years
* Senior students complete nine months of clinical education at one of 30+ hub sites, but can choose from a variety of elective experiences across the country and around the world to help each student meet personal and professional goals.
* All professors are doctorally qualified.
* Professors have an educationally diverse background.
* Our faculty use an interactive teaching style, integrating subjects such as pharmacy, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, kinetics, herbal and over-the-counter therapies into an organ system based curriculum.
