The MCW Pharmacy School is one of the few pharmacy schools in the country offering a three-year doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) degree, balancing more than a century of rich medical education traditions with cutting edge educational technologies and team-based learning models found in a 21st century pharmacy school curriculum. Our program offers small class sizes, significant one-on-one attention from high caliber faculty, and a supportive, approachable learning environment. Additionally, you will enjoy direct clinical exposure to many different medical specialties, including biomedical research, providing you with a wealth of options for your future career path.
There is an increasing demand for pharmacists who can provide expanded services. MCW is answering the call by providing an innovative model of pharmacy education that is dedicated to developing a pipeline of new, world-class pharmacists for Wisconsin, to ensure high quality healthcare continues for future generations in both urban and rural communities throughout the state. As an MCW PharmD graduate, you will have the knowledge and skills to practice at “the top of your license,” so you can fulfill all aspects of the expanding role of the pharmacist, including providing vaccines, strep tests and other patient care services.
As an MCW student, you will gain hands-on experience with our clinical partners at Froedtert Health, the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center, and Children’s Wisconsin, as well as clinics partnered with MCW campuses in Green Bay and Central Wisconsin. You will participate in providing vital services such as vaccination and immunization clinics in community health centers, at public events and in high schools, which will offer an in-depth view of the unique health needs of each community and the care that is required for the population. Finally, as an MCW Pharmacy School graduate, you will be trained to achieve the Triple Aim: better care, better health, lower cost – which contributes to higher quality care overall and better outcomes for both patients and the community.
Your experience at MCW’s Pharmacy School will prepare you to become an advocate at the local, state and national level for providing greater access to primary and preventive care for patients at convenient locations in their community, advancing the role of the pharmacist in the patient care team, and evolving the healthcare delivery model to meet the needs of patients and the community.
