Advising Information for Pharm.D. Students

The College of Pharmacy takes pride in providing excellence in academic advising through a team of informed, dedicated advisors who help students navigate through the opportunities the Pharm.D. curriculum has to offer while providing direction in career path explorations.

The academic advising office follows an open door policy in that we encourage pharmacy students to drop by the office to see if an advisor is available. However, in the event an advisor is not available, setting up an appointment at the front desk or contacting them via email then would be recommended.

Academic advising within the College of Pharmacy not only encompasses advising on course direction. We also provide resource guidance in personal concerns/issues that may affect an academic outcome.

Our office is here to support our students in successfully completing the Pharm.D. program and hopefully be a part of their development and growth of becoming the best pharmacist possible.
