Every attempt will be made to assign you and your guest to your top choices. However, due to space limitations, we cannot guarantee that participants will be assigned to their top choices. At registration, you will receive an information packet that will include a personalized schedule outlining the sessions you will attend.



Dispensing Laboratory Demonstration

Visit the contemporary pharmacy practice laboratory where current student pharmacists engage in simulated pharmacy practice experiences. Teaching staff will demonstrate compounding of customized drug products, preparation of injections and intravenous admixtures, and use of the computer in modern dispensing activities.

Pharmacist/Patient Consultation Demonstration

One of the primary responsibilities of pharmacists is to assist patients in making the best use of their medications. Counseling patients about how to use and what to expect from their medications is an important component of this function. In this session, you will have the opportunity to learn about the importance of pharmacist communication skills as you observe pharmacy students in a role-playing demonstration of a patient-pharmacist consultation. 


American Institute of the History of Pharmacy (AIHP)

Experience the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy and learn more about how the institute serves as a valuable resource in documenting and preserving the heritage and history of pharmacy. You will have the opportunity to view various artifacts from our historical collection.

Bachelor of Science – Pharmacology and Toxicology: Curriculum & Career Options 

Learn more about the School of Pharmacy’s Bachelor of Science undergraduate major in Pharmacology and Toxicology (PharmTox)! This is a fantastic undergraduate program to pursue for students interested in any science or health-related field. Program prerequisites, requirements, admissions criteria, and career options will be discussed. Please note that the BS program is a completely separate program from the Doctor of Pharmacy professional program that prepares students to become licensed pharmacists.

School of Pharmacy International Opportunities

Doctor of Pharmacy students have many opportunities to be involved with the greater community both locally and abroad. Current PharmD students are working in clinical rotations around the world, such as Oman, Thailand, Belize, Spain, South Africa, and China. You will learn about the various international opportunities available to pharmacy students. Students will share their global health experiences and discuss the impact on their learning.
