The Feik School of Pharmacy is a partner with pharmacy educators and practitioners who are patient advocates in the healthcare community. We are 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 the 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. Our rigorous four year curriculum is focused on training pharmacists to practice in varied multilingual and multicultural settings using evidence-based therapeutic and managerial principles. We always emphasize the use of technological advancements to optimize medication therapy and patient outcomes in a compassionate, legal, and ethical manner. The curriculum imparts the skills and attitudes required to think critically and communicate effectively to lead and advance the profession.
With a strong emphasis on community involvement, patient advocacy, and counseling for underserved populations, the curriculum provides opportunities to the student to become conversant in medical Spanish. Coupled with the diversity of the basic educational requirements, the curriculum satisfies 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.
