The Feik School of Pharmacy envisions itself as a partner in the community of health care educators and practitioners who are patient advocates dedicated to the delivery of superior care and enhancement of the quality of life for all citizens through the development of highly trained, culturally-competent, caring pharmacists.
The goal of this program is to provide the San Antonio and South Texas communities with a greater number of trained, professional pharmacists to meet the population’s health care needs, particularly the large and growing Hispanic population of the region. The goal of the curriculum in the UIW Feik School of Pharmacy is to offer a professional program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree where the graduates are capable of and willing to render pharmaceutical care. It is a four-year course of study requiring the completion of a rigorous pre-pharmacy program. The curriculum is designed to equip the student to understand many aspects of medicine. The curriculum emphasizes knowledge and practice in the areas of preventive medicine, primary care for the pediatric and adult population, as well as geriatrics. This curriculum will also place emphasis on community involvement—patient advocacy and advisement—for populations that are underserved for a variety of reasons. This curriculum is designed to specifically offer a service to the local population by offering the student an opportunity to become conversant in medical Spanish. Coupled with the diversity of the basic educational requirements, the curriculum should satisfy the goal of producing a graduate whose personal ethics and professional skills allow for full participation and prosperity in the medical community. The integrated course of study provides approximately 37 hours in the pharmaceutical sciences, 11 hours in pharmacy administration, and 106 hours in pharmacy practice and experiential learning.
