Program Description

Prepare to become a leading pharmacist at Ohio Northern University. The Raabe College of Pharmacy is ranked nationally as a top 10 private college of pharmacy by U.S. New and World Report. Since 1884, we’ve been producing some of the nation’s most talented pharmacists.

At Raabe College you’ll join a community of scholars that feels like a family. Your world-class professors will know you by name and closely oversee your professional development. Your classmates will become your lifelong friends.

Here you’ll provide direct patient care and practice real-world skills at the ONU Healthwise Pharmacy, the Mobile Health Clinic, the Wheeler Pharmacy Services Center, the Drug and Health Information Center, and local facilities. Across the country, we have more than 1,500 diverse practice sites overseen by experienced preceptors for introductory and advanced clinicals.

In addition, 100 percent of our students engage in health education, health risk assessments, health screenings, and immunizations in the surrounding rural communities. The pharmacy academy recently recognized our strong commitment to community health by awarding us the Lawrence C. Weaver Transformative Community Service Award.

Upon graduating from the Raabe College, you’ll join one of the largest and most supportive alumni networks in the country. Most importantly, you’ll be a medication expert equipped with the knowledge and skills to provide primary care and acute life-saving care in a variety of settings.

Our outstanding outcomes include a 93% first-time passage rate on the national licensing exam (NAPLEX) and 93% placement rate within 6 months of graduation. We also rank among the top 10 schools in the country for residency placement, with our graduates being matched in highly-competitive residencies at institutions like the Cleveland Clinic and The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
