Preprofessional Pharmacy Curriculum
Students are admitted to the preprofessional program through the regular UW application process. When applying to the University of Wyoming, students declare Prepharmacy as their major. PreProfessional students are advised by the Director of Pharmacy Student Services. The University of Wyoming does not offer a degree in preprofessional pharmacy.
Students admitted to the professional pharmacy program follow a four year program of study leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy Degree. Students complete a total of 146 hours. Students are advised by an advising team consisting of an academic and a professional advisor.
Co-curricular learning refers to activities that complement and advance the learning and development that occurs within the formal didactic and experiential curriculum. These learning experiences are conducted outside the classroom and are an extension of, or integrated with, the formal curriculum, offering a wide range of opportunities to enhance development of key skills and attitudes. Approved activities will promote collaboration with a wide range of people and disciplines and promote growth in multiple domains including problem solving, creative thinking, communication, professionalism, leadership, teamwork, innovation, and self- awareness. Co-curricular learning experiences allow for exposure and collaboration with a wide range of people and disciplines to help refine patient care skills and provide opportunities for professional development. These important skills are necessary to be a well-rounded and competent Scholar Practitioner upon graduation.
The overarching purpose of undergraduate academic advising in the College of Health Sciences (CHS) is to deliver consistent and student-centric advising that improves retention, timely degree completion, graduation rates, and motivates students to set and achieve high expectations. Underpinning the CHS undergraduate advising plan are the principles of:
1) evidence-based and informed professional advising;
2) consistent and tailored advising that meets students where they are in their program of study and attends to student strengths and barriers; and
3) relational advising focused on student success, provision of support services as needed, equity and inclusivity.
Quality advising is a foundational component of academic success that prepares and inspires CHS students to be future health and health care workforce leaders.
Preprofessional Pharmacy students are advised by the Director of Pharmacy Student Services.
Professional Pharmacy students are assigned an advising team comprised of one academic advisor and one practice advisor. Questions about professional pharmacy advising should be directed to the Director of Pharmacy Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
