More About the Program

At the Chicago College of Pharmacy, you'll belong to a small group of students, collaborating with a faculty mentor, who work together to complete projects and assignments. Your fourth professional year finds you immersed in hands-on learning at diverse clinical rotation sites, where you'll emphasize problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication skills.

Nearly 97 percent of CCP graduates passed the NAPLEX exam the first time in 2008, ranking MWU students comparable to the national mean. Many of our Pharm.D. graduates practice in community and hospital sites, and more than one-fourth have quickly moved into management positions. The median salary for a pharmacist in the U.S. is $104,000.

CCP's Office of Experiential Education (OEE) develops rotation experiences in quality, contemporary practice settings that provide positive, supportive, and challenging environments.
