About the Pharmacy Pre-Professional Program

On Campus

Pharmacists dispense drugs prescribed by physicians and other health practitioners and provide information to patients about medications and their use. They must understand the use, composition, and effects of drugs in order to prepare prescriptions, ensure correct doses, and prevent harmful interactions. A pharmacist may also create personalized medications and conduct research. The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) offers more information.

A minimum of 64 credit hours are required for admission to the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Pharmacy. Students applying to other pharmacy schools should check their admissions requirements. Since many students entering pharmacy schools have a baccalaureate degree, 体育菠菜大平台 students are expected to choose a major and work towards a baccalaureate degree concurrently with the pre-pharmacy program.

"I will have an advantage in professional school because of the overwhelming support and preparation from 体育菠菜大平台 faculty. I have visited UNMC and met with the Pharmacy School Assistant Dean who gave us a tour and talked about opportunities. We see things early to know what to expect – that includes small and large hospitals. My education is more than preparing me for my future."
