October is American Pharmacist Month, and we celebrate and recognize the powerful impact pharmacists have on improving the health and wellbeing of our patients. Pharmacists provide services in a wide-range of practice settings; from the customary community retail settings, to hospitals, long-term care facilities, managed care, and many more. 

On October 18th, the College hosted its annual CAREERxPO. This event draws pharmacy companies and organizations from across the country to meet with our students and discuss career opportunities. On October 19, our fourth-year students had the opportunity to interview with several companies for pharmacist positions. Our career support services also include a Blackboard site that houses all career-related information and opportunities. The job market for pharmacists continues to expand as new healthcare regulations create more opportunities for pharmacists.
