At the Jefferson School of Pharmacy, interprofessional, collaborative learning is our hallmark. Our integrated curriculum was developed to enable students to apply new knowledge and skills as they attain them. From the first weeks in the program students spend time each week in a wide variety of pharmacy practice settings including community pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, outpatient clinics and specialized patient care areas. Our goal is to ensure that our graduates are prepared to provide comprehensive and effective pharmacy services to all individual patients as well as to design and implement strategies to improve the overall health of the community.
