Jefferson student pharmacists learn in the most progressive, advanced facilities. The Dorrance H. Hamilton Building represents a new paradigm in healthcare education, where students learn side-by-side with other healthcare professionals in state-of-the-art facilities that include simulated ICU, operating and exam rooms. Through the University Clinical Skills and Simulation Center you will interact with standardized patients and high fidelity models in simulation that teaches and reinforces key clinical skills.
The Hamilton Building's sixth-floor Pharmacy Practice Simulation Center offers the most advanced and exciting learning environment, including:
- A clean room where student pharmacists learn to make sterile drug products such as intravenous solutions and cancer chemotherapy. This facility is complete with monitoring devices to allow experienced pharmacists to view and comments on student technique.
- Model community pharmacy to practice prescription processing and educate simulated patients regarding the safe and effective use of prescription and over-the-counter medications. In this facility student pharmacists also learn to administer immunizations.
