Program Description

The Feik School of Pharmacy is dedicated to delivery of superior care and enhancement of quality of life for all citizens through the development of highly trained, culturally-competent, caring pharmacists. The goal of the program is to provide San Antonio and South Texas with a greater number of trained, professional pharmacists to meet the population's health care needs. Our curriculum is focused on training pharmacists to practice in varied multilingual and multicultural settings using evidence-based therapeutic and managerial principles. We emphasize the use of technological advancements to optimize medication therapy and patient outcomes in a compassionate, legal, and ethical manner. With a strong emphasis on community involvement, patient advocacy, and counseling for under-served populations, the curriculum provides opportunities to the student to become conversant in medical Spanish. Coupled with the diversity of the basic educational requirements, the curriculum satisfies the goal of producing a graduate whose personal ethics and professional skills allow for full participation and prosperity in the medical community.
