The program offers many opportunities for internships over the summer while the workload and curriculum may be fairly taxing, especially if you fall behind. P1 to P3 years are half class, half pharmacy experience while the last year is completely pharmacy experiential.

The workload is very heavy. But there are tons of opportunities to get involved and network. There are lots of clubs and organizations pertaining to the profession and some just having to do with hobbies. There is some greek life, but most of it is pharmacy related and/or academic. Facilities are nice and a new athletic field was just put in. I use the track. There are lots of opportunities for internships (they are required).

The academics are very challenging. They try to "weed out" the students who aren't serious in the first few years, so professors are very tough on you. However, they spend a lot of time giving extra help if you seek it out. Even when classes are large they use "clickers" to keep everyone involved. The curriculum could use some work, sometimes the courses are too short and go too fast to thoroughly learn all of the information. Registration is hectic since there's only a window of a few hours to get classes, but they help you after registration closes if you didn't get the classes you want. The workload is heavy but that is to be expected.

Going to school for your Doctorate in Pharmacy is extremely challenging. The workload is large and demanding, and each year the curriculum gets tougher. Our program is unique because each student in the program will be taking all of the same classes. All of your peers are on the same level as you which makes it easier to relate and to understand eachother's schedules. Most free time is spent studying and preparing for upcoming tests during the week and part of your weekend. This level of work is expected based on the curriculum, but it is easier to manage knowing that all of your friends are going through the same thing. ACPHS has a beautiful student center and library which are very accomidating day to day. When school is not in session, pharmacy students do IPPE and APPE rotations which help them make connections in the pharmacy world. These connections can one day lead to job opportunities, so it is great that our school helps us line these up.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
