The School of Pharmacy at Cedarville University provides aspiring pharmacists with the unique opportunity to study in a distinctive, Christ-centered program focused upon innovation, ethical practice, and effective collaboration. Cedarville University is a Christ-centered learning community equipping students for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth. More than just a mission statement, this focus attracts more than 3400 students from around the nation to study in our 100 academic programs on a beautiful, 400-acre campus in southwestern Ohio. Outstanding students, world-class facilities, talented professors, and award-winning technology contribute to an education that U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review, and Peterson’s all recognize as one of the best in the Midwest.
Taught by committed Christian faculty members who themselves are active pharmacists, you will also enjoy encouragement from your fellow Christian classmates and graduate with a clear understanding of Christ-like service as well as a deeper relationship with God. The professional curriculum utilizes a problem-based approach with topics organized into modules to help you learn the material by grappling with actual cases. Since our goal is to produce innovative, compassionate health care professionals, you will be regularly challenged by our professors and through your extensive practice experiences to integrate contemporary practices and pursue innovative solutions in an effort to improve patient care. And if you are interested in cross-cultural service, you will find abundant opportunities to volunteer or integrate this interest into one of your actual practice experiences.
You will also enjoy our brand new, 3-story Health Sciences Center, opened in 2012. Featuring the latest in health care education technology, this facility, shared by our popular nursing program, will also enable you to develop valuable skills in inter-professional collaboration as you learn how to work in a team with other health professionals. And because of the excellent research tools located in the center as well as the interests of our professors, you will be able to develop your own research expertise, whether it is in practice or science. We welcome applications from high school students in our direct entry track, as well as collegiate transfers and college graduates for our professional program track, with strong academic credentials who possess a vision to use pharmacy as a tool to make an impact in lives and communities.
