Pharmacy Camp

Due to COVID-19, and out of concern for the safety of our guests, we have canceled all summer academic camps for 2020. We would love to host you for a campus visit when it is safe to do so. If you would like information on any of our academic programs, please contact Admissions.

July 6-10, 2020

Have you considered a career in pharmacy? The opportunities are significant! Pharmacy Camp at Cedarville University will help you explore the possibilities!

The profession of pharmacy is a changing and growing profession. Now more than ever, pharmacists are involved in all aspects of the medical profession -- from research and hospital settings to community pharmacies and patient counseling.

During Pharmacy Camp, you will learn about this growing career field by interacting with pharmacists in a variety of practice settings. With Cedarville's Christ-centered mission, your time at Pharmacy Camp will also highlight the testimonies of pharmacists who are using their roles to make a difference in God's Kingdom.

Your Pharmacy Camp instructors include professors from the School of Pharmacy, the Pharmacy Advisory Board, the Ohio Pharmacists Association and area pharmacists. Come to our pharmacy camp to learn about this important profession and explore how God could use you as a pharmacist!

Pharmacy Camp is open to Christian students entering 11th and 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering pharmacy as a career.
