Program Description

Established in 1885, The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy is a global leader in pharmaceutical education, research, and clinical practice. As part of one of the most comprehensive health sciences campus in the nation and located steps away from the Wexner Medical Center, the college is home to world-class faculty, dedicated researchers and outstanding students who are leading the way in pharmacy education, practice and research. The PharmD curriculum, Inquire, Innovate, Involve (I3) takes an innovative approach to education by structuring classes in modules so students can experience the integration of science and practice. The I3 curriculum allows students to get hands-on pharmacy training during the first year in the program and develops the interpersonal skills that are critical to patient interactions. The curriculum also focuses on helping students develop a comprehensive problem-solving approach through increased incorporation of active learning strategies, integration of pharmaceutical and clinical sciences, and an earlier introduction of integrated practical experiences that could be simulated and then practiced.
