Program Description

Program Description:
The University of Hawaii at Hilo (UH Hilo) was founded in 1947 and is one of three universities in the University of Hawaii System. UH Hilo’s diverse population combined with its unique location provides a supportive environment that prepares students to work with a wide variety of patients and situations. The College of Pharmacy received full accreditation in June 2011 after the first group of PharmD students graduated in May 2011. In 2013, the College was named the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy (DKICP) in honor of the late US Senator. DKICP embraces the Institute of Medicine's five core competencies for healthcare professionals as key components of the curriculum. These include providing patient-centered care, working in interdisciplinary teams, applying evidence-based practice, implementing quality improvements, and utilizing information technology. Pharmacy practice areas of drug information, therapeutics, pharmaceutical care, and experiential education permeate each year. The curriculum incorporates community outreach and service learning while embracing Hawaii's cultural values.
