The Pharmacy Profession

Pharmacists are some of the most important professionals in modern healthcare. There is no more important responsibility for the delivery and management of drug therapies, or indeed for education about medications, than that of a well-trained pharmacist. Pharmacists fill crucial roles in the healthcare cycle by planning drug therapies, determining dosages and schedules, and educating and counseling patients on proper use and possible side effects.

At the Midwestern University Colleges of Pharmacy, you will be trained in all facets of patient-centered care. Expert faculty will provide you with the knowledge to help patients understand when, how, and why to take those medications. You will become a valuable resource for both healthcare professionals and patients in all settings, from local clinics to major pharmacy chains to hospitals and other dedicated healthcare facilities.

At MWU, I see the passion for students everywhere. It's impressive. As a faculty member, I know teaching is MWU's priority. ”
