The Jefferson School of Pharmacy has clinical affiliations with a wide range of pharmacy practice settings where JSP student pharmacists participate in experiential education throughout their academic program. At these sites, JSP student pharmacists work side-by-side with leading pharmacy practitioners and other healthcare providers.
Our strong affiliation with Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, one of the most prominent healthcare systems in the country, is a distinctive benefit. Here, you will get first-hand experience in a Department of Pharmacy renowned as one of the world's most contemporary health system pharmacy practices and learn from some of the country's most prominent clinical and administrative pharmacists. The Department of Pharmacy Services at TJUH is also home to the country's first accredited post-graduate residency training program for pharmacists and is the 2012 winner of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Pharmacy Residency Excellence Program Award. This award recognizes the achievements of residency programs that "have demonstrated excellence and leadership in the training of pharmacy residents.
Our affiliations with many of the region's other premier inpatient and outpatient healthcare systems, community pharmacies and health service organizations provide Jefferson students with a variety of practice settings in which to apply what they have learned in the classroom, develop professional skills and network with established pharmacy practitioners. At Jefferson, we work hard to ensure that students are assigned to practice settings which will enable them to experience the depth and breadth of practice opportunities and help them to plan their career path. Our pharmacist preceptors work with individual students to ensure that they are prepared to provide safe and effective medication therapy to all patients.
In addition, many healthcare professionals from across the tri-state area share their knowledge from various practice settings and serve as your role models, mentors and instructors throughout the academic program and through our many professional extra-curricular activities.
