The School of Choice for Christian Pharmacy Students

It's a new day for pharmacy! Today’s pharmacists are hands-on, engaged, and front-line. Dispensing medications, yes, but also meeting patients, learning medical histories, and building relationships. Pharmacists are evaluating how someone is responding to a prescribed therapy and collaborating with doctors. They are screening for potential health risks and giving flu shots and vaccinations. You’ll find them in front of the counter, not just behind it.

At Cedarville University, we’re engaging the dynamic environment of 21st-century healthcare with a solid Christian perspective. Our faith informs our ethics, decision-making, and commitment.

Our patient-centered philosophy challenges students to do more than problem-solve, but to apply knowledge and experience, infused with compassion, to treat the whole person.

With medical doctors on faculty and classes taught in conjunction with Cedarville’s nursing school, our students learn how to collaborate with other healthcare professionals to provide the best possible patient care.

Doctor of Pharmacy students receive 1,740 hours of comprehensive training in hospitals, independent local pharmacies, indigent care clinics, national chain community pharmacies, rural settings, and research laboratories — in the U.S. and overseas. From the start of the professional program to graduation, students will experience pharmacy in every conceivable setting.

And if there’s not a pharmacist serving a particular population, we equip students with the enterprising skill set to meet that need.

We look forward to helping you achieve your educational and professional goals through the School of Pharmacy at Cedarville University! We offer a preferred admission option for undergraduate prepharmacy students, including accelerated pathways, and generous scholarships.
