The MUSC College of Pharmacy PREP program is designed to prepare prospective students for a career path in pharmacy. The one-day program introduces students to the many career options available in the pharmacy profession, engages students with nationally-recognized faculty - both clinicians and researchers - and teaches students how to prepare for the MUSC College of Pharmacy interview process. PREP participants will take part in mock mini interviews that simulate the actual MUSC College of Pharmacy Admission interview making them better prepared when applying and interviewing for the program. Prospective students will also have the opportunity to engage with MUSC College of Pharmacy Student Ambassadors during a campus tour and learn first-hand what it’s like to be a part of the MUSC pharmacy family.
Upon completion of the MUSC College of Pharmacy PREP program, prospective students will not only have a more comprehensive understanding of the profession of pharmacy, but will also have gained a competitive edge in creating their own #iamMUSCpharmacy experience.
The 2018 MUSC College of Pharmacy PREP program will take place on Friday, July 27. PREP is designed for recent high school graduates and current college students and graduates. Space is limited so apply today!
