PharmCAS Application and Transcript Deadline for the class entering fall of 2016:
The Western New England University College of Pharmacy prepares entry-level practitioners to provide pharmacy care to an increasingly diverse patient population in a variety of practice environments. The comprehensive learner-centered educational program fosters critical thinking skills, embraces professionalism, and instills a commitment to life-long learning, community service, and leadership. The College enhances the knowledge base of the pharmacy profession through teaching, service, research, and scholarly activity.
In order to accomplish the responsibilities required of the profession, the pharmacist must possess certain attitudes and abilities. To that end, the College of Pharmacy has nine general and professional ability-based outcomes which are required of its graduates. These competency statements include five general ability-based outcomes which mirror the core values of WNE and the pharmacy profession, as well as four professional ability-based outcomes essential to the practice of pharmacy.
The WNE Doctor of Pharmacy program is a four year, 148 credit curriculum that includes both classroom instruction and hands-on (experiential) learning. With an incoming class size of 75 students, our low student-faculty ratio ensures students receive individualized attention. In the classroom, students engage in discussion and learn through integration and application of pharmaceutical, clinical and administrative sciences. Introductory pharmacy practice experiences threaded throughout the first three years of the program and advanced pharmacy practice experiences during the final year of the program provide a framework for learners to integrate classroom skills in a supervised environment early in the program and practice the skills in a more independent manner during the final year as they evolve into independent practitioners.
