PharmD students annually plan a large health fair at the El Rio Neighborhood Center in Tucson.
The fair is a cooperative effort between Tucson Parks and Recreation and the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy. It includes a wide variety of services and events, including health screenings, health information, activities for kids, exhibitors and Spanish translators, all free to the public! Watch the video below or read our news story to learn about the 2016 fair.
For the first time, second- and third-year PharmD students from UA College of Pharmacy traveled to the port city of Kobe, Japan for a faculty-led study abroad experience.
After hosting a group of pharmacy students from Kobe Gakuin University, students asked Michael Katz, director of international programs for the college, ”Why can’t we have a trip like they had?” From that question stemmed the idea for the program. Following more than a year of planning, 14 students, along with Katz, started their journey on Aug. 7.
The college kicked off the new school year with a “welcome back” picnic for all students, faculty and staff. Held on the Walkway of Wellness at Drachman Hall in Sept. 4, the event was filled with steel drum music, freshly grilled burgers and hot dogs, and even a surprise ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Below is a video highlighting some of the day's memorable moments.
The UA College of Pharmacy has announced a new two-year toxicology fellowship believed to be the first of its kind in the country.
The college hosted its annual series of PharmCamps between May 27 and July 25, 2014.
PharmCamp is a four- to five-day summer program for middle schoolers that gives the students the opportunity to explore the pharmacy profession.
Each fall the newly admitted class of PharmD students begins a prescribed four-year curriculum as a cohort. Students may be admitted to study at either the UA campus in Tucson or the Phoenix Biomedical Campus; they will all be members of the same cohort. Classes are named for their year of graduation.
Currently the PharmD Classes of 2017 and 2018 follow a schedule for courses that is slightly different than the curricula set for the Class of 2019 and forward.
Links to current schedules are available here.
Getting ready to apply to pharmacy school takes some long-range planning! It's not something you can accomplish in one month or even one year.
