Pre-Pharmacy Curriculum

All students accepted into the Feik School of Pharmacy will be expected to bring a set of skills and a well-developed body of knowledge that will allow them to succeed in their chosen field. The following two-year plan of suggested preparatory courses, will get you well on your way to joining a professional program in Pharmacy.

It should be noted that there are other areas that you might explore to prepare you for the very competitive selection process for acceptance into the UIW School of Pharmacy. The courses below are not the only courses you can take, but rather a minimum selection to help you prepare for your chosen field of study. Your advisor will be the best person to help you decide what courses that you should take to be successful. Understand the school does not allow transfer of professional pharmacy credits or waiver of requisites, nor does it admit students from other colleges or schools of pharmacy.
