College of Pharmacy

Screen shot 2013-05-23 at 2.25.11 PM.pngThe University started the first new school of pharmacy in Ohio in 100 years in 2005. 


Seventy-two students are accepted into the program each year. High school students who enter the program can earn a professional doctorate within six years. 


The graduates will be entering society at a time when the need for drug-therapy health care is increasing as the population ages and as pharmaceutical alternatives to surgery are on the rise. The sixth year of the program involves clinical rotation in a wide range of settings to give the student a solid foundation. 


The school is collaborating with other health professions to create a patient safety training center to make drug use safer and reduce the incidence of error.


College of Pharmacy – Points of Distinction

  • Ninety-five percent of the members of the first graduating class (2010) passed their professional licensing examination on the first attempt.
  • Seventy students are selected for each class — and professors know their students’ names. They compel students to stretch their minds and learn more than they ever thought possible; however, they also support and encourage students along the way.
  • All incoming pharmacy majors are paired with a veteran pharmacy student as a mentor, and will later develop a relationship with a pharmacist as a mentor as well.
  • Students get involved in the community by completing 50 community volunteer hours and in the profession by completing 300 intern hours prior to their sixth year at Findlay.
  • The University of Findlay’s College of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education.
