Greetings from the Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy at High Point University. Our Pharm.D. program is founded on the principle that to be the most effective practitioner possible, it is necessary to have a solid foundation of the basic disciplines of our profession. Advanced care requires an extensive nexus of the basic and clinical sciences blended with the ability to work as a member of the health care team and communicate effectively with patients and other members of the team. I am proud to announce that the Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy has been awarded full accreditation status by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education. This is the culmination of an effort that began six years ago with the end goal of developing a pharmacy program that produces graduates who practice at the highest professional level and serve their patients and communities with compassion and commitment to their well-being. Our student pharmacists begin providing care for actual patients in the first year of our professional curriculum and have numerous profession-defining experiential opportunities throughout the program. Our program provides a depth of technical knowledge and skills as well as professional life skills. Our students have shown their academic prowess, while providing over 2,000 hours of community service each year. Their volunteer services include administering immunizations, conducting blood pressure and blood glucose screenings, helping with OTC giveaways, conducting brown bag programs and much more. Pharmacy students participate in a Longitudinal Patient Care Experience where they are paired with a member of a local continuing care retirement community for four semesters. They develop a relationship with their resident during their pharmacy school years. This popular program positively impacts both the quality of life and the quality of care in our community. Consider visiting our beautiful campus and state-of-the-art School of Pharmacy building and meet one of our advisors to see for yourself how we prepare students to be the exceptional pharmacist of the future. Sincerely,

Earle “Buddy” Lingle, R.Ph., Ph.D. Dean and Professor, Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy elingle@highpoint.edu High Point University Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy’s Doctor of Pharmacy program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, 190 South LaSalle Street, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL. 60603-3499, Phone: 312.664.3575, Fax: 866.228.2631, Website: www.acpe-accredit.org

PRE-PHARMACY OVERVIEW

Program overview

HPU’s Pharmacy program is a six-year program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree. The program only requires two pre-pharmacy years to apply for the professional program leading to licensure. It is not necessary to have completed a baccalaureate degree because students have the prerequisite knowledge to be successful in HPU’s pharmacy program and the profession of pharmacy after these two years of prepharmacy coursework. Since students are not required to complete a four-year degree to be eligible to apply, they save tuition and living expenses for two years and gain two extra years of pharmacist earning potential. With your success as our top priority, HPU’s PharmD program provides opportunities for you to engage in academic and hands-on experiences that will help build your knowledge and skills while simultaneously accumulating a wealth of patient care experience. Students learn from both discovery scientists and clinicians, recognized nationally and internationally as leaders in their fields, as you become the medication therapy expert.

PHARMACY OVERVIEW

Professional Four-Year Curriculum Overview HPU’s Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy has taken a unique, integrative approach in the design of its professional curriculum. The blending of basic and clinical sciences as well as the application-based learning experiences are designed to consolidate information into patient-oriented actions that create a rich learning environment for students. The close collaboration of faculty throughout the curriculum results in basic pharmaceutical science material (i.e. medicinal chemistry, pharmacology and pharmaceutics) being taught in parallel with corresponding clinical content and joined together throughout the curriculum by application-based courses. This curricular design and faculty collaboration drives the integration of the basic pharmaceutical sciences and the applied clinical sciences helping students assimilate all aspects of their training into patient care plans. Curricular electives are provided in the form of certificate programs designed to create deep knowledge expertise of selected disease states while teaching a process of learning that can be used throughout the student’s professional career.
