Summer Program for High School Juniors

(Formerly known as the "Career Explorers Program")Careers in Pharmacy Program

2016 Program Update:
Thank you for your interest in the Careers in Pharmacy Program. We are currently working on revising the program for this year, and we will have information posted shortly. Currently, here are a few items to note:

The program will not be a four-week program as in years past. It will be offered in two one-week sessions, and students may choose to participate in either the session to be held the week of June 13th, or the session to be held the week of July 11th.

The deadline for the application will be later this year, so that students will have ample time to complete one. Dates are to be determined. This year's application is not yet available. We do not yet know if or when we might host an Open House. We do not yet know how many seats will be available in each session.

We apologize for these delays, which are due to circumstances beyond our control. If you would like to be notified when the new information is posted, please send an email to, and we will email you as soon as it is posted on this site.

Program Description

Two Sessions Offered (choose one): June 13 - 17 OR July 11 - 15
Monday - Friday; 9:00am - 5:00pm

For more than ten years, Midwestern University's Chicago College of Pharmacy has offered a unique summer program for high school students interested in a career in pharmacy.

The Careers in Pharmacy Program consists of a short course of organized, hands-on activities in pharmacy-related topics offered on the campus of Midwestern University. The program provides an overview of pharmacy education and various careers in pharmacy, as well as link students to mentors who will provide career counseling in this health profession career.

During this program, students will spend eight hours per day for one week (Monday through Friday only). Students are responsible for their own transportation to campus. We do not have overnight accommodations available.
