  program_description: |
    The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) School of Pharmacy offers a three-year, year-round Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program at the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center which includes access to Froedtert Hospital, Children's Wisconsin, the Milwaukee VA Medical Center, and numerous other facilities. 
    
    MCW’s PharmD graduates will have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to practice at the top of their license and contribute to patient-centered care within a team-based model, ensuring optimal patient outcomes in concert with other healthcare professionals. MCW prepares the next generation of pharmacists to meet the growing healthcare needs of society, and MCW PharmD students complete more than 2,200 clinical practice hours. A pharmacy career offers individuals the opportunity to encourage wellness in the community and the chance to improve the lives of those they serve every day. MCW prepares graduates for both direct-to-career options (working in a pharmacy immediately following graduation) and post-graduate training options (such as residencies and fellowships). 
    
    The MCW School of Pharmacy’s PharmD program has been granted full accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). Upon receiving full Accreditation status, the MCW School of Pharmacy has demonstrated, to the satisfaction of ACPE, that its PharmD program complies with stringent accreditation standards. Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for pharmacist licensure examinations upon successful completion of the PharmD program. Graduates from the inaugural Class of 2020 achieved a 97% first-time pass rate on the NAPLEX. Additionally, the post-graduate training match rate for MCW is 76%.

    Completion of the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT)/Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is not required; rather, it's optional. If you believe the PCAT/MCAT provides evidence of your academic preparedness for the MCW PharmD program, you are encouraged to take the PCAT/MCAT and submit your scores to PharmCAS. For example, this could apply to students at or near the minimum cumulative/prerequisite GPA requirement or students who completed science prerequisite coursework more than seven years ago.
