Not all pharmacy schools are the same.

There are 123 colleges of pharmacy in the United States. Although they all confer the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree, they each offer varied learning environments and emphasis.  Do they emphasize retail, clinical, or advanced academic opportunities? Do their students pass the board?  Are there any unique programs they offer? Brian Swan, a Pharmacist for 35 years, and still currently working in the industry, brings a wealth of personal experience to share with future pharmacy students. With the help of Greatland College Consulting, future pharmacy students will be guided toward finding the best pharmacy school fit.
