We are facing a shortage and inadequate distribution of pharmacists in Wisconsin, as well as an increased demand for pharmacists who can provide care to patients living in regions with limited access to medical facilities. The MCW Pharmacy School expands the role of the pharmacist by training our graduates as part of the patient care team, evolving the healthcare delivery model to meet the needs of patients and their communities, and advocating for greater access to primary and preventative care for patients in medically underserved communities. To ensure qualified students have the means necessary to pursue their pharmacy education, MCW is dedicated to raising funds for scholarship support to our students in the Pharmacy School.
Faculty Recruitment and Research
Faculty at the MCW Pharmacy School will embark upon leading-edge research specializing in population health, pharmacogenomics, and translational research in concert with MCW’s healthcare partners. Investment in funding to recruit, retain, and support faculty leaders is a fundamental need in our founding years at the Pharmacy School.
Our curriculum features a unique, hands-on approach to learning through interactive classroom design and labs focused on telehealth technology, sterile product preparation and point-of-care training requiring a significant investment in space, technology, and learning tools. Support for learning space and tools to use in our instruction and research will truly help MCW prepare the pharmacist of the future.
General Program Support
As the MCW Pharmacy School establishes a destination program for innovation in pharmacy education, practice, and research, support to the program is needed for student and faculty recruitment, innovative infrastructure and technology, curriculum and program development, and advancements in research. General funding is essential in the inaugural years of the Pharmacy School as we pursue our commitment to advancing healthcare in our region and beyond through patient care and innovative research. Program support will allow the Pharmacy School to expand and develop programs related to recruiting underrepresented minority students, developing our workforce pipeline for medically underserved communities, and providing our students with experience in primary care services in our communities.
