Practice, Teaching & Engagement

Transforming communities, expanding academic excellence and amplifying the College of Pharmacy’s impact through collaborative practice, innovative teaching and engaging outreach.

Giving back is part of the Buckeye way of life and the College of Pharmacy embodies that philosophy by pioneering and participating in partnerships outside the college.
