Professional Development Benefit Plan

The College’s faculty and administration recognize the value of active student participation in professional and scientific organizations and have therefore committed funds to help support these endeavors. The goal of the funding is to inculcate professional values and the importance of giving forward to the professional organizations that support us. Below is the professional development benefit plan for students in the PharmD program. Any student who accepts these funds is expected to participate fully in the organizations to represent the college in a professional manner, and must agree to be held accountable for doing so. Being a member of a professional organization or attending professional meetings is a privilege and students must understand they are responsible for all class or experiential work that is missed.

Students on academic probation are not eligible for this support.
